Just for interest.

This is up for auction in the ACT. Not having an air conditioner is definitely a deal breaker for me, but there's a lot of style with these old things. Despite there being a lot of photos in the ad, the photos of the underside leave a lot to be desired. I'm not sure whether the discoloration is bit of surface rust or something more serious. Someone has gone to the effort to make it look pretty (there's not a scratch on the floor of the cargo tray), but they haven't troubled themselves to paint anything other than what you can see from the outside. It could be a lemon, but it certainly looks reasonable. I'm not so convinced the odometer is real (19,509km). Perhaps it's gone around once.

Honestly, I don't think that's unreasonable IF that odometer is correct and it's a genuinely fresh 45 Series. It's not like they're making them anymore.
