Have a look at these links/contact details for two 170's for sale. Whereabouts are you located? Both of these are in Brisbane.

Well I do know that CraigB has one and he is contemplating selling it - but I think he already has someone from interested. Might be worth contacting him though in case his potential buyer changes his mind.

If you'd like I could place a wanted ad for you in the next SA club mag which comes out in March.

No worries will do.

You can contact CraigB via private messaging (that should work now that you have made more than 5 posts)

The one on ebay is OK but the reserve is unrealistic. I have seen it up close and would put it's true value around $1800 .

Fantastic! :occasion5:

Looks like a really nice project too, with the majority of the hard (and messy and expensive) work done - so you get all the fun jobs of bolting nice new parts back onto your clean car! That stage of a resto is very rewarding and it is very satisfying when you can see real progress happening quickly! Please keep us posted on the project!

It will be some time before I get to even look at it. I need to finish the engine rebuild of my 300b and the Tatraplan restoration before I will even look at the 170 ! Maybe in 2015 !
