This is the first turboA I’ve seen up for auction in Japan for a long time. It looks pretty well worn and with only 17,000kms on it you’d have to assume it died and has sat unused for a while. There does appear to be a heap of rust in the windscreen wipers and engine bay – which all appears genuine turboA (not Group A as the auction suggests).
The Australian price, based on the conversion rate right now works out to $5,790.25 Aus. Include shipping, taxes and all the other crap that goes with getting a ship transported over and you might get this for $8,000-$9,000 which is way cheaper than any turboA on Australian soil (well, of those that run).
