EH S4

Hi, an S4 has been found!, last registered in 1983 and in a dry shed since. Winton Red/Fowlers Ivory roof, grey interior. The car also has a raft of NASCO accessories fitted, sunvisor, drivers weather shield, top of front guard chrome splitters and bonnet centre spear, door handle scratch plates. The factory tool kit is still with it as is the engine, 12 gallon fuel tank. The original purchase receipt from the dealer will come with the car along with the owners manual. It will be for sale in around 3 months by her new owner as it was part of a deal for another rare car and he simply doesn't want it. How many are known or rumoured to exist?.

There were 120 built in Sydney and 6 in Melbourne, my guess would be less than 30 remaining.

Any others guestimations?

OK I'll have a guess, and it's strictly a guess for the hellovit. I'll say 6 known ones, and 4 undiscovered ones sitting under barn-dust somewhere.
Anyone else? Just for kicks.

I read this on bookface, so must be true:
"14 known surviving from the S4 register records.."

I'll have a look. I've got the link on my tablet thingy, but I'm on a wizz-bang new computer now. Well, not that wizz-bang. My tablet has no wi-fi at the moment, stupid wi-fi. I'll see what I can find.
How come things just don't work? It's not rocket surgery.

Jeez, that’s a rare bus. I’d love to own that.
I was cruising around in my mums “S” model Val yesterday. She said it was stalling and leaking water when she was taking it about 2 km down the road for its pink slip. It rarely gets used. I put in fresh fuel (as it was empty) then drove it like I stole it around Grenfell (NSW) slants seem to love getting flogged. It ran like a Swiss watch.
