The "new" Walkies that people are talking about here -- there has to be a couple of them. I picked up the "Street Commodores" magazine with the article people are referring to from a Salvos shop last week. I have the magazine at work and not here, so I can't be 100% accurate, but the magazine came out in 1998 (or maybe early 1999). There's a photo of the dash and the odometer shows between 400 and 500kms. The build number from memory was in the 400s. There was no plastic on the seats in the photos, and the dealer said in the article that he'd sell it for $50000. The article stated which dealer it was, but I can't remember now. I know it was a country dealer and not a metropolitan one.

Say an ad yesterday in a Unique Cars or similar.

Parkside Autos at Arncliffe in Sydney had a brand new never registered Walky for sale. $40K approx from memory.

The mag was about 12 months old I think.

I expect the car may have been sold many times over already but just never registered. But then how do you know if it's ever been registered before? No way of knowing really.

So lets face it the cars aren't really 'brand new' they are 15 years old but they can be never registered.

This is regarding when was the LAST Walky ever sold.
The answer IS from a small town about 40mins away from where i live
called Walla Walla, with a population of lessthan 1000 people.
The Walky was never sold, untill about a year and a half ago and it WAS the ONLY
walky in australia that still didnt have names in the owners book (or service manual or whatever it is called) and from memory i think it only had about 500kms on it (driven once in a while to keep the thing in working order).
The Town Walla Walla is about 40 mins north east of Albury/Wodonga.
The Walky was sold to a collector in SA, not sure of the exact pprice but it was for aroud the $50k mark. He hired a truck drove the truck over and put the walky on the back and drove back to SA.
This was the last walky to be sold, it had never had an owner beforehand, it had just been sitting in the dealership.

Sorry about the long post.

That would've been the guy that wrote into Street Commodores from S.A I think saying that he purchased the car brand new, had it towed to his parent's house, had it placed on stand's and has remained there to this day. I think he also invited them to verify that his story was true.

If the car's barely seen a road in it's life, it shouldn't be too bad.

I know of a genuine Phase 3 living in Western Sydney.

Very wealthy owner, it's looked away in a garage with about 10-15,000 miles on it. Still has the original ink check stamps visible on the rocker covers.

He has many other rare cars too.
