You could get a bodykit and make it a C10 Hakosuka GTR replica mmmmmmmmmmmm...........

Are you saying to make a 510 into a Hako replica Sam? ???

Why would you want to turn a super rare 2 door 510 into a gtr?

That does look clean and well priced ,  but you just need to do your due diligence especially with a Qld coastal car, no matter how well sealed the garage is.

I did that once. The young fella was in Sydney too and paid me for petrol from Ballarat, ended up purchasing it. Must be someone down that way who will be able to help you. If not i can cruise down there. What area is it located?

Just got back from melbourne!

Wanted to give a big thanks to Mark aka Scoota and Jordan for helping me inspect the car and driving us around today
Great bloke and its people like him that make forums like these so great :)

Put down a deposit today and will pick it up later in the week to drive it back to sydney. all i can say was WOW it put a huge smile on my face when i drove it. the car does needs little work though so i'll start by just cleaning up some of the little things, maintenance and perhaps later down the track a full body resto.

im looking forward to this new journey and learning as much as i can!

I doubt that,  very little to do to this one. Maybe put a decent media player in it, address the very small amount of rust at the bottom of the rad support panel and that's it. Has triples, cam, head work and 20 Years of Receipts. Crazy thing.

yep its as mark says!

theres not much to do really, just some small things to address like fixing the radio, badges, hatch etc. and i'll add my own touch of style to the car so it'd probably a very short build thread haha
nowww how does one get a bre spoiler??

Wow, great find mate. Aren't you glad you didn't look at those earlier ones you listed in the thread? A good car will always show up if you are patient. I don't know what you paid, but that looks like a very genuine car with some race history to boot. I'm very happy for you and I'm sure you discovered just how addictive these cars are once you drove it, there is nothing like that first experience and you got to drive a well sorted Triple carb L-series on your first drive :).

That's also 1 of my favorite colours.

Oh most definitely mate.

It came up at the right time, i did have to stretch the budget a little and travel but its a small price to pay for a complete working car.
Can't wait to pick it up!
