    Our latest -a 1973 Sopru - has arrived- 233 German Chassis No 4/73 Aust. Compliance plate- have not looked for M-codes yet.
    Had not driven before but steering , brakes, gearshift spot on.
    Fluffy valve on one cylinder. Parking dings only and no rust.
    Speedo reading is 40000 odd miles and from background history is true 140,000.
    All original cupboards , except for fridge cabinet. Roof linings unmarked.
    Cupboards will need a bit of work-mainly bench top but will probably use Mangrovejacks.
    Front mat unmarked as is floor under-original vinyl floor in back
    Pics below. No name yet.Not cleaned either

    E. Sopru still operates in Adelaide. I posted this before but will check on sticker and perhaps get clearer photo.

    We have decided on name for 73 Sopru.
    It is GULLIVER and will be officially named later today when temp drops below 40C.
