It's about 3 minutes from my place!

I'll have to take my 6.3 there for pics one day.

Maybe a place to stop on route during the next Downunder rally???

Hmmmmm,

I have a friend who was the CEO for Petersville for years. He is a very active Member and past President of the Victorian Club here in Aus.

I suspect he would be able to add some interesting comments about these cars.......??????

Thank you Chris for the new pics.

The colour mentioned on the dataplate is 573 Glasurit, called darkbordeauxred.
The dataplate states also it is an australian deliverd car.

After recieving the datacard and productionorder I, we can see, that this car 000100 was the first australian ordered car and was prepared for show-using ....

Thanks for your co-operations.

Added a new golden LWB - RHD from Hong Kong.

I have the owner also send my pics from unidentified cars in Hong Kong.
Who knows, he might be able to help with identifying them

A new identified exUS car =now in Germany and ex Sweden= is added in the overview.

I have a ton of pictures I took of it at Techno Classica. It was the same show as that picture of it on a lift, so they are almost all of the underside. My friend at the Classic Center said the restoration cost was well over 1 million Euros.
