    Old man car projects. Datsun 520, Austin A40, Morris Major, Navara, maybe more...

    Advertised for my Dad, because he has too many damn cars. He's the Skompa of the boomer generation.

    Datsun 520 cab-chassis. Apparently it's drivable (?). $SOLD

    Morris Major Elite. Looks good, but it's very rusty. Will be parted out in the near future. Not sure what's still available, but I can ask for you if you need something.

    Also, he has a nice Austin A40 that he bought last week and is already wondering why, a Triumph TR 4 basket case, and a TR6 basket case that will all be available...

    Located in Bathurst.

    OK i stand corrected, I'm sure i once drove a 1988 Navara with 8 spark plugs, but performed like one with only 3.

    He definitely said twin cam, not twin spark. Pretty sure I've driven a twin spark Navara too, maybe it was the same one Potsy...

    Potato phone pic of the A40. Apparently, it was registered 2 years ago. For a 70 year old car, it seemed pretty decent in the 2 minutes I spent looking at it. It was an impulse purchase that he now wants out of. $3500, which is what it owes him.

    Where I wrote above that he will have a TR6 and a TR4 available, make that a TR6 and 2 TR4s.
    One TR4 is the ex Ken Hannaford race car - allegedly the fastest Triumph in the country back in its day. It includes the original CAMS log books. It was stripped for restoration ~35 years ago and is a complete, solid car with good history. The body was put back to standard and metal finished, but it needs to be restored/reassembled. Sorry, no pics of its current state, but basically everything is disassembled.
