I came across a fella by the name of maximillan carson, selling a hr wagon in the UK, i've been in contact by email(the email on the ad is not the email they replied on, that was the first suss thing i noticed), see ad below.
The seller claims to have shipped it over to the UK but is vague on specifics and when asked where he bought the car originally he went quiet, he also is offering free shipping back to australia.
I personally think this car is still in australia namely western australia as that is the current number plate(UHR003), and he gave me the VIN which is "HR01289B", wagon is dark green with a white roof, deep dish wheels all round with holden hubcaps, and at $7.5K its too good to be true, and is probably a scam.
The photos he sent show it in scenery that looks like australia, not the UK.

Here's the ad, note the typos in the specs! lol

There is a registered GMH approved club in the UK who have the details on all of the known Holden cars in the UK. They are very helpful and knowledgeable. I attended one of their shows a few years ago and they are very keen to help if required. Their web site is holdenuk.co.uk due to another company called Holden in the UK. Ken Garner is the best one to contact.
I would contact them to see if they know of the car or the person for a start.

Just looking at the link shows some serious questions need to be asked.

Looking one pic, I can see a JJ Richards rubbish skip, not to mention the Falcoon wagon and Frod Territory in the background.
I smell a large rodent.
Attn camry drivers. The accelerator is the skinny pedal on the right.

SCAM. Same old trick has been around for quite a few years now. Will be asking you to send a deposit soon. Will try to schmooze you with a B.S. story or will tell you a sob story of hard times or the car will be excellent and extra cheap. Throwing in thousands of bucks worth of freight eh?.....Yeah right!
Do not get tangled up in it or you will do your dough.

If it is on Ebay or Gummie report it.

Cheers, Nick.
