All the way from W.A is this horizon blue 300SE with some serious rust problems. Not so unusual in a finny but serious enough to require a lot of work to rectify.
left rear Jack point has basically rusted right away,as someone has found in the past when attempting to lif the car .
iLeft rear boot box floor ,a normal rust spot and no worse than others . Rear box section ,no seriouis rust outs. Right front chassis strengthening member rusted out . Rain water gets inside this section and if the lower drain holes are blocked,they eventually rust away . This particularly bad as that is the air cleaner visible in the center.
Inner left boot box side .
inner left rear chassis mount.
Left rear anti dive link mount
Inner side of left front sill section .Showing sever rust. this will all be replaced .
Steel spring installation where the air springs have been removed .
250 S in very straight condition. Been off the road since 2010 due to a minor fault. This is a project car and will require normal work to get registration etc . There is very little rust in the right front sill front and the rear boot box bottom,right hand side.
No rust in the doors or floors!! no dash cracks ,and the MBtex seats are still very good. Original boot mat is in very nice condition .
This is RHD 6,3 #2206 . The engine is incomplete and the drivers side sill/rocker is rotten but the rest of the car is surprisingly sound but in need of a full restoration .RHD 6.3’s are too rare to part out and i would rather restore this car anyway….. or build a historic racer for weekend fun.
