Location: ACT, Australia

This vehicle is now under restoration by Paul and his brother after being off the road for many years.
The last owner, David Mackie, says "My father bought the car in about 1978 and I got the car off him in 1993. Since then I have been very slowly working on a full rebuild. The car was very original, but had a hard life. When I started pulling the outer body panels off, I found that damage to the inner tub had been badly repaired in the past and some rust was creeping in. So the restoration process is taking a bit longer than anticipated. " ... David Mackie
