So this ones been in the pipeline for a while, it's an original two owner car and originated down near Albury way and lived there all of it's life until now. All complete and matching numbers and still retains the e31 head and radio. My plans are to get the paint tidied up along with the interior which is a bit shabby but all original and drive this one for a while, overall its a pretty cool original old car :)

Is this the 1 that was with the other early car? HS30 00103?

 

Looks rough and ready but original.

 

Edit* Just checked and yes it is, Fabio's old car. :D

It sure was, overall it's pretty original and has got virtually no rust in the body and i would say 75% of the paint is original and doesn't appear to have been involved in any major accidents. Fabio and his Wife bought it of the original owner, drove it up and down the road every so often then it got parked in the shed, I'm guessing from the service sticker its been of the road since around 1991.

By the way Curtis when you saw HS30 00103 did it have a Nissan 2400 OHC cover on the engine? Fabio was going to check but I didn't end up hearing back from him. Still curious when our cut off point is for HS30's.

Very cool! Always been my favourite colour for zeds.

 

Do the fender mirrors appear original? Can't imagine many buyers opted for them when they bought - much more desirable now...

I didn't know you bought it, didn't they put the price up after another so called expert told them the deal you made was too cheap? Did they know the deal had been made, that is just bad form. Anyway I am glad you persisted so it didn't just keep deteriorating in that shed, good on you. I know the way you bring them back to life in no time at all, get to it mate.
