Guys,

I have to realise, i'm never going to get time to enjoy this car as I should, so maybe someone else can!

She's a Sport model with 13B Rotary, Hydro electric roof, F4 visor.

I've recently had the 4 barrel Carby fully re-conditioned, before that it ran well with a small fuel leak (that's why I got it re-coed)

Previously registered in Victoria - still has rego plates attached.

Pretty reasonable paint job, now black, looks like it was originally Blue.

Was told it should fetch at least $8,000.
Not too sure if that is true, but can't see it being worth $10,000.

Happy to negotiate with enthusiast Smiley

Thanks for the replies.

Not chasing top dollar, more keen to see it go to a good home to preserve this era of Aussie motoring.
Of course, $$ are nice  Cheesy

Cyco, perhaps leave them up until I get my act together...Thanks

Have been asked by a couple of people what is required on the Eureka, so I'll post the reply here as well.

Also forgot that I bought a brand new electric fuel pump for it as well ($300)

As mentioned in the ad, the carby is off the motor as it was fully re-coed ($800), so that needs to be re-installed. Probably an hour or so work.

It does need a wash Smiley

I'm 6'4" and have laid the seat right back so my head doesn't hit the roof, this is easily changed back though.
The issue with that is that I have made a spacer for the steering wheel so my arms can reach, but hadn't got around to extending the gear lever. The gear lever has been removed and i have all the bits, but does need to go back in. Probably another hour or so work. (I was going to fit it with a quick shift lever, then lengthen it so the travel would have been the same)

Needs a new battery.

The accelerator pedal needs to be put back, although you dont really need it. If you know VW's the accelerator has a roller on the lever that attaches to the pedal and this roller will just as well roll up/down your shoe.

The engine runs really well with no smoke (great for a rotary).
The guy I bought it off told me it had been rebuilt and extend ported. (I cannot confirm this)
I used to have an RX4 in my youth, that was extendported for the primaries and bridgeported for the secondaries.
The extendport is an increase in port sizing to give more hp, but without the crazy idle you get from a bridgeported rotary.

The carpet is getting a little tatty, but nothing that needs to be changed immediately.

Driver's side perspex needs to be refitted (10-15minutes, max)

Roof works really great, button on dash gives you up/down also via a remote on a key chain.

You could easily fix all of these on a Saturday, then drive it all day Sunday Smiley

I have the last number plates there were on the car as well as the sale receipt from the car yard it was in, showing the sale to me.

The rego sticker shows it as a 1972 Purvis Roadster.

Wow, always wondered what happened to that one - I have pics from the net from when it was all 'new'.
Good luck with your sale.

Hey, no need to sell it dude if you don't want to. And I've washed cars in the rain before. Wish it would rain right now, it's sooo bloody hot here.

I think I'd really like to keep it, but you know the drill - too many cars, not enough excuses to satisfy the wife. Wink

Ive got photos of this car when it was for sale at "Market Place Carsales" in Bendigo, I was looking at buying it then, so had a mechanic go over it for me prior to the purchase, he told me the front end was in need of attention, I drove it home, and it danced all over the road, so he was right. Also the dropped floorpan under the drivers seat was done by a "Butcher" just a box section under the seat made up of very thin tin and rivited together, because of this I was told it would need fixing properly, and an engineers certificate re-done prior to registration.
It does have some rather nice wheels on it, which is what made it stand out.
The interior and body were in rather good condition, as I think the paint was rather fresh back then, the red "everything" interior didnt grab me, but it could be a tidy up job without too much cost or effort.
The asking price back then was $6,500, and the guy offered it to me "as is" for $6,000.
I went back several weeks later to make him a lower offer, and it was gone!

Would be interested in finding out where you are now with this car.

Thanks
Stuart

Guys,

I'll leave this on here until the end of the week, if no sale by then, I'll put it on Carsales for $11,000 (I think) expecting to get negotiated down a bit.
So there is a benefit to being a member of the web page. Cheesy

Older photos removed at request.

Looks great when washed.   Tongue

Interesting hinge covers, only one I've seen with those.
