Just lucky I guess.
Glad you got that 3000GT.Hey guys,
Went to Tassie and loved the white 3000GT so much that I bought it and brought it back on the Spirit! It's in terrific condition for it's age - only faults are sun discolouration on the top of the rear seats (and a little bit on the outside edge of front seats), worn gear pattern imprint on the gear knob, and some stone chips on the front bumper/bonnet which were touched up.
I'd be fascinated to know how many of these Aussie delivered 3000s are still rolling around. There's three others for sale (one white one on carsales, and one red and one white one on gumtree). Would love any other ADM 3000 owners to let me know about their rides so I can build a database to share!
The good ones are worth the extra money.
Been building a register of OZ delivered 3000GT's for a while.
Have two sources ( One is Mitsubishi Motors Australia ) that say 120 were sold here.
But fact is I have only located to number 117.
That may be further complicated by a couple of " general export " cars I have come across that appear to have been sold in the Australian market.
They have a slightly different vin No. One came up for sale not long ago in Tasmania.
I have got 27 of the 120 identified in the last few years, including number 1 which was for sale in WA a few years ago.
There could easily have been another 20 I didn't get a vin number for, so I would guess there's a good chance at least 50 are still around. Could be more.
Where you are real lucky with OZ 3000GT, is Mitsubishi dealerships have been unloading their workshop manuals etc specific to OZ 3000GT. Watch the net and you will come across them. Especially, technical information, chassis and electrical.
Need to start a thread for OZ 3000GT info.
Maddy got this one going for just Aussie members ride pics.
