Well, after hours of cleaning, and months of my slackness, Finally I have photo's of the coupe to put up. I bought it off of OZGEM about 6 or 8 months ago, some of you who frequent both ozgem and here would've probably seen it. It's all standard, 1.6, auto, never been stuffed around with.

It's got a little rust in the drivers door (front bottom corner) and in the passenger front guard behind the mudflap. It came without the head as it had suffered a crack from over heating at some stage. Motor seems ok though (free and no scores in the bores) so I'm rebuilding a head at the moment to put back on it. Radiator was also pretty sad so that's being swapped for a good auto rad I've got lying around.

So, without further adieu.....

YEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!

Finally got some pics up of this beast :twisted:
Still can't get over how clean this thing is.

Should do a photo shoot with the mine and the hack once I've got it on the road :)

BTW, did you remove the passenger side headlight glass? Looks that way in some of the washed pics.

na, passenger headlight is newer than the drivers. Need to find a good matching pair but it's not real high on the priority list.

Getting it on the road on the other hand......

nice example. some felt on the seats, original... i like it! I think all good original coupes have an 80s or 90s radio station on the right hand side of the rear bumper :) It must have been the done thing back then.

yeah I know. I hate SAFM (I'm a J's and 3D man myself) but I kinda want to leave it there as a bit of a nostalgia thing. At least till I get a new rear bar.....

Interior is pretty good. Back seat is cracking at the top which is pretty common, small tear on the drivers seat, carpet on the drivers side is a bit sad but it still has the original Eurovox tape deck complete with 4 speaker sound (which was installed around 84, still have all the warranty cards etc)

The car was sold new from Smiths motor company in Adelaide in '78.

Really??? What was it like when you had it Dunn? And how long ago was it?

I payed close to what he was asking for it ( to be honest I cant remember what I payed for it) I think he wanted 2g's for it, I was within a couple of hundred.

The car is pretty tidy, she's had a few repairs here and there. Drivers side rear quarter paint is crazed so it's definately been patched at some stage. No major dents on the inside of the boot though, and the roof is a little surface rusty. The only other spots for rust were the bits I mentioned above and where the front bar mounts to the chassis (pretty common). Boot floor is mint, footwells in the car are mint, engine bay is also mint.

If you've got any photo's of it from when you had it do you reckon you could post them up or send them to me?

much the same when i had it, i bought it off a dealer, he just had it traded in by a grandma and wanted 2grand for it, with a massive amount of haggling from tunney i got it for a grand. then sold it shortly after for a tidy profit.

this is the only photo i could find sorry, if i find some more i'l certainly email them to ya.
