There is an interesting chance of history with this vehicle. The lower two
pictures were taken in 1983 when I was 19. The car was for sale at a local
car yard near my parents house in Melbourne. At the time I had nowhere near
the funds to purchase it and could only stand there and take a picture.
Some 22 years later in late 2005 I finally purchased the car from a chap in
South Australia. A very quick restoration was carried out so that it could
be used on the 2006 Mercedes-Benz clubs of Australia National Rally.
At some point in time the car will need a full detailed restoration to
preserve this wonder piece of motoring history for the years to come.
