A way bit lower than the Golden Mill plus they were spruking all week . Overseas collectors wanted it,  but was blocked from leaving the country by the government .
So they may have had their Mill plus, but had to give it up to a lower $$  Aussie buyer .

My cousin ordered a brand new XY van with bucket seats, 250 4 speed, alloy wheels etc.
The dealer laughed at him, but placed the order anyway.....

My brother bought his employers XY 250, 3 on the tree van and promptly threw a 351C 4V, top loader and 9" at it.

My father ordered a new 68 Fairlane.....6 cyl 3 on the tree.....because that was the only way to get a front bench seat......4 kids will do that.
An option was the GT steering box.......No more 16 turns lock to lock.......and it turned out to have a one off colour.....very similar to the Burgany but slightly different.
Still getting around somewhere out west.
