Nice car, but that's a lot of money.
Is the petrol cap the right one? And why are there nuts and bolts on the timing cover (in front of the fuel pump)?

I have seen the bolts and nuts thru the timing cover when fitted with the 6cyl, power strg, bracket, but can't see any power steer bits there, also have a look in the boot particularly around the left hand inner guard near the boot mat, the paint appears to be worn away about an 1"- 1 1/2"above the mat, not good for a car with 30 000+ miles on it. I'd be checking it out real well before forking out that sort of money, but hey when do car salesmen lie.
Cheers,
Dave

There are lots of things that point to a restoration rather than a well kept car.

Number plates are not the right era, the number of holes in them is wrong ad the colour. No need to change the plates unless they showed many more miles of stone chips.

The dash has a broken temp guage and if the car did so few miles why would you bother putting one of those km/H stickers on, they were put on by instrument fitters and was a good few hours work, if you hardly drove it. Horn button is also restored.

Gear knob looks too smooth.

+ battery lead damaged and - is repro.

Cad plating, some is bright and others dull, should all be the same.

Witness marks on bolts that should not have them.

Not a single stone chip on the front of the car yet the Holden grill badge is smashed from a stone, plus other stone chips.

As you said, first give away is the boot area ad a full inspection to prove the owner's claim would be required.

My money is a nice restoration.

Yeah that's the way to go, half the price and two cars in one.
