Is that the one from the "MuscleCar Museum"? A good starting point for a restoration.....for a very dedicated enthusiast. You can get some parts but....boy you need lotsa money,helpful Japanese connections and patience. I first played with these in 1973, by 1983 I had three in various states of repair, and only recently parted with my last. Careful,...they get into your blood :love:ROFL .

..And you can't do with out these guys! Aussie Prince and Skyline owners

...if only I had a big shed ..lotsa money...hmmm Aghh good onya Mr C!

Yeah thats the one. Aparently he's got 2 of them, this is the spare one that he is selling. I guess his reasoning it that for a museam you only need one of each type. But all those cortinas look the same to me.

Parts hard to find, yeah I get that with the Silvia, not that I had to look for much, but lots of roadster parts fit, which is good.

If anyone wants a look:

.......I wonder how much he wants for it.

Well, as he says in his ad,

only 30 of these left, very sought after car, only sell to a good home, bargain hunters need not apply.
I would assume that, as my British friend would say, the price would probabably be a bit dear!

Jeff , the guy that owns all those cars has started selling some of them off on ebay, and various other bits.

Might be interesting to check up on now and then, to see if he puts the Prince on ebay.

He had the prince on ebay several times a while back now, I cant for the life of me remember what he wanted but for some reason 10or11 sticks in my head. There is a guy near me with three or four GTB's in varying condition.

This looks like the final/last appearance of it on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4604622534

Amazing what a difference 12 years makesROFL :stupid:

1994 I sold three of these on one go for $3500, and was happy to get that! Two of the cars were in better shape than this one.....Ah well, ya gotta keep grinnin' eh?:D

A few bummers with this one.

It needs at least a pair of original front seats and a set of door trims (the ones in it are not).

One of the cars near Gawler is nearing registration & club use, would be a good 20/20 car (20 feet at 20mph) but at least it is pretty much all there and mainly original.

btw, a good 240k with some work (eg Webers, headers, cam etc) will blow one of these away, and is more than a match even with a 240z twin carb motor.

A GTB is significantly heavier and that 2 litre 6 is only rated at 127bhp in stock form!

A bit like a Formula Ford, very quick if you can keep it on the boil but hard to do just that.
