Many thanks,

Maybe try MB Classic Star in Greenacre - they have a good reputation, but they're about half an hour from Matraville. I'd give them a call, as they may be able to help with a recommendation if it's too far for the seller. I live about an hour an a half north-west of there, so i haven't used them myself, but have only heard good things about them.

Good luck with it, can't say I'm not envious...

Hard to say regarding older models.
Best bet is to ring them all and have a chat.
Phone number at MB Classic Star is 02 8790 1126 - John Tsolakis
