Ever seen the Oz movie High Tide?

An R series is the centrepiece (after Claudia Karvan and Judy Davis of course) ...

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

at Feasts museum in Port Macdonnell in the SE of South Australia. (South of Mount Gambier.)
He has an amazing array of Chrysler stuff and several of the R series cars. Probably the biggest collection anywhere.
Well worth a couple of hours of your time.
regards,Rod.

considering there were only 1008 assembled here, the chances of seeing them are very slim.

i'd love a 3 on the floor manual one, they were rarer than the push button auto's

Go to Chrysler's on the Murray in March, you'll see a dozen. My Dad had two of them over the years. The first one he bought almost new, was about 5-6 months old. Bought it from a car yard on Parramatta Road around Strathfeild way.
My Mum still drives an SV1.
