That's awesome! Definitely rare to see one anywhere in the world. Never knew they never made it to Australia. Enjoy!

Not worth "saving" unless you have tons of $$ and talent.
20 years too late.

Matt, really enjoyed your video. I hadn't witnessed a vehicle in that condition being moved. Way to fight back the tears man! A perfect opportunity to prove what a talented young body man is capable of. Definitely not for the faint of heart! Keep us barners posted as we anticipate your progress. How many gallons of swamp water can run out of a mud grip?

Saw your video. Very cool. Are you selling any parts from the car? I am looking for the Mercury badges for the hood and above the radio.
