I bought this wagon in 2015

After putting some work into it I used it as my daily driver and for work travel for the last 4 years

BODY :

  • There are a few small dings, the biggest just under the rear windscreen.
  • Small bend in right corner of rear fender (under bumper bar) but its accessible and fixable.
  • Minimal surface rust. No structural rust
  • Original paint, scratches and chips here and there

MECHANICAL : 

  • New engine installed in 2003.… it’s exactly the same as the original engine it came from the factory with in ’83…. Blue 202 (3.3L) straight 6. I have the installation/warranty document.

WORK I’VE DONE ON IT OUTSIDE NORMAL SERVICING

  • New tail shaft centre bearing
  • New front brake pads
  • New water pump and radiator hoses
  • New front wheel bearings
  • New air filter
  • New battery
  • 2 new tyres

2016 :

  • New manifold vacuum adaptor
  • Fit auto trans service kit
  • June – 6 x new spark plugs 2019
  • July –  2 new tyres

NOTES : 

  • The trimatic auto transmission drinks more ATF than it should
  • Need to add 1-2 litres every couple of months
  • When the ATF gets low 2nd gear slips into neutral, but moving the gear shift to 2nd gear puts it back in 2nd and it stays there
  • Then when 3rd gear is needed move the shifter to D and it goes into 3rd as normal
  • When I bought it the odometer wasn’t working. That was at around 178,000 kms
  • After I drove it a few thousand KMs it started working again and is accurate. It now reads 215,000kms
  • There is no way to know how many KMs the car did before I owned it, but judging from how reliable it has been I don’t think it would have been much more than 180,000 odd
  • The speedo isn’t accurate, the needle moves around
  • Spent money renewing AC system in 2016
  • A minor electrical issue in 2017 caused the compressor switch to stop working.
  • I left it be and put up with heat after that ..I don’t think it’d be a difficult repair and I know around about where the problem is
  • Rear right window only winds half way down

SPARE PARTS :

  • Quite a few including bumpers, lights and tail lights

ACCESSORIES :

  • Original rear windscreen louvre/venetian.
  • Gregorie’s service and repair manual

It has rego until 10th December 2019. I can get a pink slip done for a prospective buyer

Considering it’s historic value it would be better off being owned by an enthusiast who has time to restore it

Probably best off getting historic plates and joining a club rather than being used as a daily driver
