Additional information –

The vehicle bearing the PSN – J548925 – was originally built at GMH’s Elizabeth, Adelaide plant as a painted and hard-trimmed Sandman van body. This was then assembled into a finished car and completed on 18/11/76 at GMH’s Dandenong, Melbourne assembly plant.
No delays were experienced in production. This Sandman featured the standard de-rated payload capacity (RPOXX7). “

The present owner tells us the restoration was done approximately 5 years ago, final part being the trimming.

Altogether, a very nice example which now presents in bright green and sporting a healthier 308ci (5.0 Litre V8 engine), to bring to it’s present condition. This engine now sports roller rockers and a mild Craig’s camshaft and is mated to a 5 speed Celica gearbox.

Seats, door trims and steering wheel are genuine leather.

Available to admire on our state of the art showroom floor in Adelaide.

Eligible for Historic registration in most jurisdictions, this equates to minimal on road costs.

We can arrange transport door to door Australia wide.

Finance – our broker offers VERY competitive rates and prompt service.

We welcome the opportunity to consider your trade in.
