I think that guy needs a big pat on the back. He has now set precedence on ALL of the cars above.

Kerry is pretty well on the money with the hotrod.....there was never a company called hotrod and thats what Canberra was going after in the first place...then they took it further with other cars.

The F100 is of the same example, built in 56 by ford motor company. Looks like a ford, sounds like a ford (well sorta in this case)

I dont think there would be any dramas with the GT40 aslong as it was built prior their guidlines...and then, you may need to prove that. I love the fact that its right hand drive allready

As for the bread truck.....that thing is just WAY COOL. Looks like something out of the movie "cars"

Sheri also found a RHD XC falcon GT clone ute for $5000 obo but she wasnt up to speed with what their worth back home

Theirs about 60 -100 different cars going out on this weeks mailing list that are mainly Mustang but also a few odd ball things aswell

In the meantime, heres one for the bike guys.

1949 Sunbeam S7 Deluxe $8000

There is only 412 of these bikes left on the world register. Most of them went to India for police bikes and a handful made it to the states. There is believed to be 12-16 in the USA. Similar styling to an old Indian or BSA

This bike runs and runs extremely well. Bought out of California but originally was a Florida bike

All parts can bought for the bike locally (USA) and from the UK at reasonable price but it really needs to be pulled down and painted rather than spend cash on parts

As for restoration, Its not a biggy. If the bike was stripped down and painted and then re-assembled you would have an extremely nice (and rare) bike

500cc inline twin. Brake on the left, gears on the right. (1 up, 3 down)Think the only thing missing is the tank "Sunbeam" badges. A good clean and some paint, this would be an easy restoration. Could possibly have a set of rings thrown through it during restoration

I would guess that $9000 landed in Oz plus Gst etc should do it

Sheri and myself have one that is fully restored (48) and we just love it. Takes a trophy at every event regardless. Named the Toon Town Twin and has been in several bike mags. Their is only one downside to owning it, everywhere you go...you get stopped when you pull up somewhere and have to talk with a heap of people....thats not good when your hungry and have pulled up at a diner or something...pic at the bottom (green)

All original GT40's were RHD as they were Lola's. Only the Mk III was built as a road car.

Mk I & II were built in England, the Mk III (12 of) & IV (7 of) was built in the US

There you go...never knew that...not real up to speed on the GT40 but thats a good defence when it comes to importing it... as you say

"All original GT40's were RHD" Not that its an original GT40

Might contact that guy and find out what year this was done. See if he has any documentation to verify it

Thanks Kerry

I am really tempted for the Sunbeam Matt. My father had one of these in the early 50s. Any more details on it?

To clarify above...

The Mk III's were built as road cars with detuned 289's in them & were given to Ford executives. One at least was claimed to be LHD (maybe more or all 12) & was for sale in 2007. The Mk III's, I had little interest in as they had no racing history.

The original Lola cars (Mk I & II's along with the US built Mk IV's) were all RHD & race cars.
