Hi to interested party

The above skyline was purchased by my uncle last year . unfortunately my uncle passed away at the end of last year and the car is now for sale and is regestered in nsw . the car has been detailed and serviced snice he bought it . The price we are asking is as above and we are hoping this car will go to the right home as he was an enthusiast with cars in general, but had a soft spot for this particual car. It is still in excellent restored condition the only thing that has changed is the no. plates due to nsw rta not allowing it to be regested with tassie plates. If there is any interested parties contact number is 02 49 829 566 please no time wasters due to circumstances as we would like the car to go to a like enthusiast .
