Very nice purchase. A 340 would be nice addition, however there's nothing wrong with a 265.
QUOTE=Pimpreza;458896]A mate had one of these from new but it was a special model with a 318 and the roof line went almost all the way back to the end of the boot, I think there were 3 in WA at the time but that was back around 1975/6/7.

Edit, this is the same, I think they were all green, would love one now.

[/QUOTE]
These were called a Mexicana. I think there were only 50 produced in Australia.

Very nice and clean ride mate, any chance I can become 'one of the boys', for the Sunday cot cruises

Pro-tip:

Bit the bullet and have the screen removed and the entire ressess for the window taken back to bare metal and cleaned up, as it wont be long before you're feet start getting an unwanted shower or your carpets an unnecessary wash.

Not all Mexicanas are green.

Who says I'll be cruising on a Sunday near the cot around 1230 on a hot summer's mid day looking at all the lovely girls eating ice cream and lining up for the sunday sesh *Takes a breath* I really can't wait to get home!

Yeah the windscreen is coming out as the spot is in the join near it. I don't mind paying that extra as that's the only spot of rust it has.
