Hey guys. Today I picked up a mechanically A1, Liberty RS Turbo from Geelong for 2 grand. Just thought I'd start a thread to document my journey towards getting it on the road and getting the bodywork up to scratch. Currently it has a few scrapes and dents, mis-matched door cards and headrest. So some money will be spent towards getting the car up to my liking.

 

It is practically stock in terms of performance mods except for the 3" mandrel exhaust and varex muffler. That will be getting swapped over to pass the roadworthy though.

I'll keep this posted as regular as I possibly can

Lucky bugger!  I'm eyeing one off but it's in WA and I don't want to spend THAT much on it to make it mine - story of my life!

 

I'm looking forward to your build.

 

More pics needed please!

Cheers

Bennie

PS if you find another one that's basically in the same category as this one let me know ;)

Well 219 originally sold, take a few that have been written off I'd say between 100-150. Rare machine for a good price :D
