additional comments = The real black batmobile from 1962. Classic cats eye tail lights and wheel on boot lid, R-Series Valiant body number 142 with custom burgundy velour interior and T-bar auto ex VE VIP. Great cruiser, rumbly twin exhaust on engineer approved 318V8. New Nolothane front end, water pump and brake booster. Disc brakes, good rubber on custom rims (245s on front and 265s on rear). This is a beautiful car to drive as is or tidy up for shows. Itís a real talking point with huge style cred. Completed faultless round Australia circuit in 1997 and little used since.

This vehicle has since been sold - new owner details shortly.
