No Engine - see below
Trans: No Trans - see below
This rare vehcile would make an amazing donor car for building the radical and infamous "Buggy #9" Perentti from Mad Max - Fury Road. So far as we know nobody has built a replica, and the original reportedly was crushed after filming wrapped. You could be the FIRST!! The seller has given a complete discription below. Still if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
If you would like a quick history of the "Buggy #9" Perentti from Fury Road, check out the article linked below.
"You are looking at a 1979 Perentti. An Australian built car based on a 1974 C3 Corvette with a Holden HQ to HZ panel van or ute chassis (same). Records are a bit sketchy but most agree there were only 97 built between 1979 and 1986. After some research this particular car is the only one I could find originally fitted with manual transmission and a Jaguar inboard brake rear end so it is possible that it is one of a kind. I found the car sitting in a paddock under a tree, fortunately, it belonged to someone I knew. When he told me he'd had the car for over 25 years and had no plans for it, I had to rescue it. I now have the car in my workshop but with all the other projects, room and time means that I have to move it on to someone who will appreciate it. As for its condition, it is missing motor and trans which I believe originally was a SBC and probably and Muncie 4 speed but you could easily fit any motor box combo you wanted. The chassis has a lot of surface rust but the worst of it is in the front left rail which has a hole in it. There is also some body damage (a tree fell on it apparently!) on the top of the left quarter near the back window. Rear glass is also broken but is flat so easy to replace. The body damage is not extensive so for any one handy with fiberglass it would be any easy fix. On the plus side it has all the parts which make it a Perentti. The interior (other then seats which were rotted) is complete. In fact it still the original door cards and electric windows and comes with a spare set of instruments. I will also supply with the car another chassis to either replace the existing one or use to repair the rusted front section. The advantage the Perentti has of using a common Holden chassis is the all the suspension bushes, brake and steering parts are still available through Rare Spares Australia and a very reasonably priced, particularly considering the exchange rate. I'm asking $7150 USD for the car which I think is very reasonable considering its rarity. All costs to import will be at the purchasers expense. Contrary to popular belief they are not kit cars, due to registration requirements they had to be sold through dealerships. The other myth you may have heard was that they were built on one tonner chassis. Not true, they were built on either HQ to HZ panel van or ute chassis as they are lighter."
