Didn't even notice the eBay linky, the one I was looking at certainly wasn't $90,000 but every bit as good/better

Yes it's a rare car, but a bit unsure of the condition, the outside paint is quite good from the photos, even the white paint on the inside of the engine bay is good, yet look at the paint above the firewall near the tags, it has age and signs of paint lifting and surface rust in spots, yet the engine bay is like new, and I didn't think that the tags on HJ's were pop riveted on. Could be wrong or just me being too sceptical.
Cheers,
Dave

If you use the zoom on the pictures it looks like the tags have been pop rivetted for a long time. Maybe they were removed for a full acrylic respray 20 years ago or something.
I think the biggest red flag is where says the two trim pieces above the windscreen are missing. Doesn't the Coupe have a different windscreen to a sedan, and if they do, wouldn't these two bits of trim be virtually irreplaceable>
He says they "blew off" at a club event. First time I've ever heard of windscreen trim simply "blowing off".

Old is good.

There are plenty of signs the car has been restored, the engine has been resprayed and so has the car.

And they never cane with an optional AWA radio

who'd have thought the "ugly duckling" of coupes could command that coin?? not me.

the square lines of a hj simply dont suit the flowing curves of the hq coupe body, if i bought that it'd be getting a hq walk off front asap lol!!

I can believe that the trim blew off, as it happened to me many years ago,and t was only one not two, but being standard trims wasn't a problem replacing them as I was on my way to a swap meet, so all was good, but I feel sorry for the guy at the club event following behind, it's not the sort of thing that you are looking out for.
cheers,
Dave

Radio is dealer fitted.vinal roof is after market, should have BVR in trim spot.rivets I think Sydney where using the smaller rivets by the third month 1975. No factory power windows or air con if it had them I might give him Sixty grand for it.
