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
