Yeah mate, easy to do but you'll have to post up pic of ID plate closer to driver side or at least quote details

Ela Katsa, LEKA is a friend of mine. I had a look at the tags, it's a genuine BT1, LW5 MS1 morning blue.
Do you have any idea which state used morning blue cars and whether or not it was used by police?
Thanks

I've seen one or two advertised in that colour as turbo Bt1 in the last 2-3 years.

Pretty sure this one was at 20-25,000 mark

Morning blue was used in NSW and VIC, generally speaking they where used as highway patrol and my guess is this car is optioned with long range tank? (Not all bt1s had long range tanks)

Is it stock or modified? I've seen heaps of them over the years, great colour combo, has it got blue trim?

Morning Blue is a run of the mill metallic colour. The Blue used on SA BT1s was a solid colour called Police Blue.

Did you buy it as a roller mate or was this the one on carsales with the precision turbo and manual in it?

What are your plans for it?

Had a drive of that one. Was a genuine LW5 MX7 BT1 morning blue. Engine went well but was pretty dodgy. Boot floor was glued together (tried to tell me it came like that factory) bashed in sill plates on both sides, interior a mess and the engine was resting on a plank of wood between the sway bar. Not only that it needed a respray. Couldn't get him under 23k lol but I think someone bought it, was on carsales for a year at least?

23k? Lol I got it for 15k. No timbers in bay so looks like everything was put together. Interior is in good nick aswell besides the drivers seat having a small tare. By the sounds of it looks like most things were fixed.
