Any more info/thoughts on this vehicle would be appreciated.

I've got a friend giving it serious thought.

surprisingly two 6.9s popped up on lloyds online today.  they are 100 VINs apart. i dont know where the lloyds site came from, but its selling more 6.9s than most other sites in australia.
back up for sale is #6032, the thistle green car.  a facebook user said this car was rusty and stay away. actually looks pretty fair to me as an australian yorkstar car.  263,969 kms, it hasnt done much in the last 3 years when its sold several times.

Hello everyone, and thanks Nathan for the report.
Nice color!
Anybody knows the DB-xyz paint color code?
Perhaps 387 Blau, or 906 graublau, or 930 silberblau ?
I'm in the process of dissembling/sanding to paint one car. I had decided on one color but this one added second thoughts on my selection...
Thanks in advance.

RD's cars keep coming up! #5884 surfaced and sold without a price on brooklands classic cars victoria.  looks nice and original.  One interesting tidbit the seller dug up was that it originally belonged to one of the Myer family

6.9 5440 has popped up a few times, now at $70000! formerly owned by forum member 13B, ive seen it cross hands quite a few times now. its been put back into more original guise evidently, and is on carsales in Toorak.  With 266,700km, this means its done < 2000km in the last 5 years.  I attach one pic from the advert, and another few from previous times when it was sporting different plates and looks!

and only today, I sold one of ours.  The white 6.9 (#4764) is a euro i bought of I think the second owner years ago. Its say waiting for its turn to be restored.  With dad getting older and already having three 6.9s between us, it was time to let it go.  It was bought locally for a 5 figure sum, admittedly interest was quite steep and I should have maybe put a higher price on it. Anyway, hopefully it gets restored to former glory.
it has the limited 320kmh speedo (in seriousness, i dont know where the previous owner had this made!). not my best pics sorry, compressing to fit the forum can be difficult! Anyway, i also put a short youtube video up

This one popped on carsales a few weeks ago. I thought maybe #5172 was new to my records, but I had it down last in 2007.
Advertised on carsales for 60k, looks like a nice car.  190,000km now, had 175000 or so in 2007 when last recorded.  Owner says had for 20 years and a Yorkstar car.  Now in QLD.

a nice silver on blue australian yorkstar car. sold in 2016 for $68000 (asking at time), its now on carsales for $60k. when in 2016, had 146000km, seller now says 147000km so he must have been very frugal!
nice enough car for an original one.  Its actually in the northern territory, i think this is only the second 6.9 i had registered in NT in 20 years (although it still has its NSW plates on it AAA21L)
the pics are from 2016 as i cant compress the most recent ones to fit.

I am very far away from Australia (Canada), but love all the postings you have provided. Aussies are truly car nuts, and the number of 6.9's you have posted is evidence of this. The prices are pretty extreme as well!

nathan

How did i miss the last post, thanks Neil!  We all have a bit of craziness in us as old car fans, but I like to keep tabs on which 6.9s are where as a history record almost

this poor 6.9, #4895 went to the crusher largely unsalvaged.  our friend and former poster WGB sadly passed away 18 months ago and his cars have sat in his rural home.  I had previously spoken to family and told them if i can ever help, let me know.  They called at short notice to ask for help with several of his cars as they flew in for a short period from 4000km to sort their affairs.  I went up to his house, down the rural road and checked the cars.  most importantly, i got his pride and joy 6.9 running and it pumped up, this is to be sold.  he also had a 116 he had stripped which i sold on gumtree for parts for the family.  another wreck i managed to sell for them.  but for australian delivered 4895 , which used to belong to another org member, it was too late. the car had sat outside on the farm all this time, had water ingress, and when i opened the door a 4 inch wolf spider crawled around, i was not stripping any interior.  there was no time to pull parts as it sat on its rear end with the front suspension off, it could not be moved easily, nor rolled so with only 1 day to sort the other cars, it had to go to the wrecker. what a sad day...
