    I have an 88 Poverty Pack in Portofino Red that I defy anyone to find rust in. Very much a credit to the previous owner(s).

    I know I picked the good one... and agree about the BWTC.

    and the 2 door is always what the heart wants...

    Roads?.. Where we're going, we don't need roads...

    That's what's known as a 'corner case'.

    or not even visible on the bell-curve

    I look for originality, no accident damage repairs, no rust, provenance as to previous owner/s service history, and mechanical repairs. Plus previous usage type, body and interior condition. Then there is the 'X' factor which entails all the above plus colour, how it sounds and drives. Not all Classic Rangies posses this intangible quality.

    Hmmm...that's more than five isn't it.......oops.

    What turns me away from any used car is if it has been a regular tug.

    As others have said with their Classics, no rust in my LSE either. Been a country car all its life and never been near the briny.

    Good topic Mercguy.

    I looked at the photos and fell in love. I looked at the price and nearly spat my single malt over the keyboard.

    I had an 81 and an 85, for me body/chassis condition is paramount .
    Mechanicals are easily repaired but the alloy panels are a nightmare and beyond most home mechanics.

    I guess it could be called a fixation as I monitor the prices of those Rangies years which interest me. What I have noticed is that more than a few of the expensive car ads don't last for very long. The supposition on my part is that they are purchased hence the ad disappearing.

    Any way - here's a list of what I saw today.

    Year $
    76 89000
    79 53950
    79 44990
    81 30000
    86 14500
    82 12800
    84 12000
    95 39000
    94 12990
    92 18500
    92 10900

    I looked at a 2 door 77 once and the rear floor was rusted out and the rear crossmember gone .
    However that was not all.
    I drove it and it was almost unsteerable.
    I looked under and the drop arm on the steering box lock plates had both been put on one side and the drop arm was falling off the splines.
    Yikes!
    Luckily I had my big socket with me and I tightened it up for the bloke and installed the lock plates correctly and bent them over..
    Again, Some people!
    Regards PhilipA
