I purchased my car in 2004. It was in quite good condition, some rust in sills, etc, which I repaired myself [I did my apprenticeship on these vehicles in the 1950s]. I also did the mechanical work and paint work at home.
it has been a very reliable vehicle
My wife did some trim work including head lining. We have travelled a lot in this car, to many parts of outback Australia on some very rough roads, including Mount Iris Station near Lake Gairdner and it has been a very reliable vehicle.
