|This is my last resort and have been reluctant to advertise here as it isn't that climbing related
(although it has made the pilgrimage to Araps and Gramps many a time) but now I'm desperate and

Great first car or for climber, surfer or anyone who is generally poor!

(recently had two 5cm sized rust areas cut out, for the first time), runs very nicely. She cruises at
ease at 120km/h and just think, you'll never need to stumble into the pines at midnight and worry about

Unfortunately it's unregistered and this is probably what scares a lot of buyers off. I have now moved
over seas and can't really get it all taken care of. We (my brother who is holding the care until it is

Selling price $500 (was trying in Trading post for $1000-$800). The maths; $500 + $800 (RW work)
means $1,300 for a great work horse, and she looks pretty too!
PM me if you are interested, or have other leads, and I'll put you onto my brother who can show you
the car (Brunswick, Melbourne).

metallic, slightly different headlight styling and mine has a roof rack tray thingy]
