Past repair history with a number of repaired areas noted on the auction sheet. On inspection though the repairs appeared professional and there was no noticeable rust or damage. It had been 3 different colours, originally red, then a darker brown / bronze colour, then painted white sometime in the last few years. The paint was pretty well done for Japan, with the inside of the door openings and hinges painted etc. (but not the engine bay which is typical).
Body only had a few touched up chips, basic scratches and door dings but nothing major.
Dash was quite cracked which is quite common for this model / age. Aftermarket driver’s seat had a small split at the top near the headrest. Front carpets and trim were present but the rear carpets and trims were missing. Chip on the bottom of the windscreen.
This vehicle sold for 902,000 YEN FOB. Total price in Australia at that time would have been approx. $15,700 plus $1,000 to $1,200 compliance allowance, plus tyres if required and ORC’s (calculated at a rate of 84 yen to the dollar).
