Unfortunately, the seller notes that the car is fitted with an 1100cc engine rather than its original 1275 unit. However, the car does run and drive in its current state, with the brakes needing a tune up.

According to the 1275 LS register, the majority of cars built in August came in Nugget Gold, with the Hi-Ho Silver being more prevalant in the later months, up to October 1978.
Interior trim is provided with the car, however, it is not the original trim (which is quite difficult to source). The car is located on the Melbourne side of Ballart and is being sold on behalf of a friend. Please contact James for further information by clicking the contact seller button above.
