Don't know it as it's the opposite end of the country but I'll send the link to a few friends more local to it if they know it


Looks a nice car... even if for a cab

One of the lads was inquiring about it not that long ago. Very nice car and sent loads of good detailed pics but money was abit strong for him at the time with being on UK plates.

Definitely worth a look

Can check most by just having a look underneath really at the left rear mount with a quick spray of degreaser or something and cloth. There's other areas where it can crack obviously but that one is usually the first place to show underneath

I appreciate you can't really look at the subframe chaps, if someone could check the car out thoroughly though I'd really appreciate it!

It looks in fantastic condition from the photos!!

Town just says Down ...

Thanks so much

Be more concerned about the service history and condition. RACP will crack or already have cracks so this is part and parcel of owning these cars and you must budget for a reinforcing load relieving repair. As long as the floor isn't literally hanging out then don't be to concerned about it.
