Hi all,

I'm trying to compile a database on all 117 of the Aussie delivered 3000GTs so I can see how many of these beauties are still on the road. If you have one please reply or PM me your car's VIN, colour, and state it's registered in!

Happy to share results with anyone who's interested!

Cheers.

PS: to start the ball rolling, here's the list of confirmed cars so far:

Really good Rob. Hope that list keeps growing.

Just for interest if anyone is checking their Vehicle identification number,-
That third digit "F" in the vin is for Australia.
I did come across a car selling not long back as Australian delivered.
Vin started out JMY though.
Y in third digit place means ",- For General export, territories other than Europe, Australia, NZ, USA & Canada.
There is also an odd GTO in Australia with 3000GT on the rego. Am sure this is only people in Australia not filling out forms right.

By the way, you can tell the year of manufacture by the letter before the last J in the VIN: N is 1992, P is 1993, R is 1994, and S is 1995. Interestingly, production numbers dropped each year so if you've got a 94 or 95 model they are quite rare indeed!

Now we're close to hitting the wall at 45 cars! I'm trying to confirm the details of a red one that was for sale at pickles auctions in SA last month, and I think a member with the alias 'Solrac' has one too, so just waiting for his/her response to my message.

If you know anyone with an Aussie 3000 please bug them to get their car details so we can continue this growing list!

Many thanks to RuralGTO and GTOJOE for their help so far.

Also please let me know if you've heard of any of the 117 that have gone to a better place! e.g. we know that number 81 was burnt out a few years ago.

Cheers, Rob

Actually, I've got one more to add to the list thanks to Capo for getting back to me about his red number 65 in ACT. That makes 46!

Interestingly, we've got 17 cars in VIC, 14 in Qld, 10 in NSW, 2 in SA, 2 in WA, and 1 in ACT. I think I've accounted for all of the Vic and Qld ones, so I'm expecting there to be more in NSW and the others states/territories.

If I was a betting man I would guess that our final tally would be around 20 in NSW, 6 in WA, 5 in SA, 2 in ACT, 2 in NT, and 2 in Tas, which would make a total of 68.

Anyone want to have a guess?

Now what we need is a National Gathering to get all these cars together at the one time. Oh wait, we have one of them...

Exciting news: Stealthify has helped me create a wiki page for our registry!

https://www.3swiki.org/Mitsubishi_3000GTs_of_Australia

Feel free to add your car to the list if it isn't there yet, and update details of your car. The page references this forum, so the owner names are entered as your 3si alias - when you edit the page just copy the same formatting rules that are already in place by Stealthify.

Found out today that there's no Oz 3000GTs registered in Tasmania, which should help narrow down the research a little.
