I would say the opposite. Since a nice 6.9 can be had for the mid to high 20s, why spend $8k on a basket case?

Yes I think it was a good price for the seller but it did have high compression engine. Looks like an early car with no timber on the console although the speedo looks like km only so maybe parts have been swapped?

I had set aside a day to have a closer look but it sold before I had a chance. Looks like rust in the sills & boot area. Apparently in the doors too. Suspension appears to be blocked up rather than operative.

The car was bought in NSW & recently sent to Vic. The new buyer is in NSW so it’s going back! Whoever bought it apparently sold another for $55k so they have resources to restore this one but not sure if there’s much profit to be made after costs.
