Original 1966 Hr 161 3-speed column. Picked her up in Melbourne for $2700 been living in a guys garage. I think a bargain.

Comments

I think a bargain also, now wack some seat covers on those seats asap to protect them, maybe a dash and parcel shelf mat also to protect them from the weather (plus because the dash rubber is such a bastard to replace). Then proceed to drive like a grandad, it's a beatiful car, look after it and it'll be worth big money later on in such original condition, if you want to thrash something, buy a camira, no-one cares if you kill a camira or six ;)

Just looked at the picture again, that really is nice, it's almost like a model it's so perfect, nice purchase! :)

looks sweet, especially for that money - like reaper said, look after it and if its your first car don't have a smash :) I'd take that sun visor off and put it aside though, personally I reckon they look better without but thats just me.

I was going to mention that but maybe if it looks like grandads car he'll be more inclined to putt around in it ;) I'm sure he intends to take an extreme amount of care with it though, she'll certainly get some looks on the road in the condition it is in ;)

i'm sure you've thought lots about it already, but PLEASE look after this car, don't remove the sunvisor you'll lose or damage it, in fact don't modify it at all! Take all the above advice and cover the interior, drive like grandad and PLEASE don't ever park it anywhere where it may get stolen (very easy) because it will end up for sale on ebay in a billion bits.
You have a big responsibility, and if you can't or won't look after it then SELL IT TO ME!!!!!!

there are no stupid questions only stupid people

that is a really nice car dude... as above, take good care of it and don't park it where it can get nicked... i know, i never thought i needed an alarm for an old holden, but someone had a good go at mine recently...

so have fun, take care, and lap up the attention that will come your way...

Good buy, paint looks a bit suss though. I have a HR in the same condition. Keep it clean, polish the chrome once a month and if it gets wet,,,dry it straight away.
