Your not wrong. I thought the same(dragged outa the ocean). I think you'll need more than the Gregory's manual, you'll need to be a master metal fabricator. Looks like its already got an inch of bog in the right hand rear quarter

Too many people with too much money. Buy it for $15K, spend $100K on a good resto and you might have a $90,000 car.
I had a look at what people are asking for EH/HR Premier seats the other day. Rough rubbish seems to be all that is for sale, for anything from $500 to $1500. The last reasonable rubbish pair sold on ebay sold for $500. A basket case pair went for $287.
I only looked because we are thinking about spending $400 or so on a pair of Mk6 or Mk7 Golf seats for the EH. Drive a late model Golf and you'll see why we want them. I can probably buy them for less than what we'll get for our need-a retrim EH Prem seats. Bl**dy rediculous if you ask me.

Old is good.

I know what your saying David. Look for quality alternatives. I put some beautiful electric leather Volvo buckets into my AP6 Wayfarer (ute). I bought a complete interior out of a high end Volvo for $100 from a dealer, and he even delivered it free to my house.

Also try seats from the Australian made Nissan’s. Those from about ‘83 thru to about ‘91 are brilliant seats. Pulsar (Astra), Bluebird, Skyline, Pintara.

I bought an ‘89 N13 Pulsar for $100 just for the seats, then sold the rest of the car for $250 without even trying.

Good point about the bids.
Most of them look real, but there are two bidders with a feedback score of 1. Both bidders have only recently joined ebay and the only bids they have ever placed were on this item.
I'd say he has opened a couple of fake ebay accounts to push the price up. I hope the b*stard gets stung and doesn't sell it.

Sold...$15200. Let's see if it's collected or readvertised. I'd love to be there when it's loaded onto a car trailer or tilt tray, the thing will fall apart.

This POS is up to $26,200, and 30% of it is missing (owner says it is "about 70% complete: https://www.ebay.com...
Same deal, spend $100K fixing it and you might have a $70,000 car.
Why bother?

Yeah saw that one too. He says no rust, but there's plenty of evidence where it was.
