How many SE's in Australia?
« on: July 07, 2017, 10:20:02 PM »
Just wondering if anyone knows how many special edition T/A's there are in Aus, i've heard of maybe two, but I can imagine there'd be a few more hiding out somewhere. Thinking more of the Y8*'s than the 10th anniversary ones and the pace cars.

i have 1978 Y84 and my friend just sold his 1979 Y84
at a wild guess i would say around 200 genuine and many more clones
local car show usually has half a dozen special edition

200 Genuine Special editions? Wow, that is much more than I thought, I didn't even know there was that many T/A's in the country in general! How much did he sell it for?

There's lots, and even more lookalikes. The cost of shipping and conversion to RHD, back then and even now, means the more expensive and sought after models were selected. How many base models, bugger all.
