I see it has an Exile sticker on it.

And series two seats which is a shame.

Well been looking at this Yellow Savana GT
I had exactly the same model back in the late 80's and I just loved it.
So I had a glance at the additional pics he is showing and quite honestly this car is not what it seems (in my honest opinion) - if I am wrong then I will gladly apologize.
If you look closely at the external paint in various pics you will see the 1" wide rubber strips have been caught with paint.
The interior seats are from a Series 2 so the rarity of this vehicle starts to drop.
I don't recall the Savana having rear seat belts either - am I right ?
The original paint appears to have been white - have a look at the nearside door interior (where the door card is missing), or perhaps it has been a replacement door from a donor vehicle, I think this door needs more than tlc!
Alloys are correct design but hub centres as dubious - I still have an original which is not the same as these.
No way is this a 6K vehicle and those seats are definitely not - yes if it has been around the clock at least once.

If you check the MOT History of BYR 433T (about 1/5 way down Roll Call Pt !) it for a Yellow 78 S1.

But it could have been fitted with a replacement speedo Cliff. Do the Japanese measure in miles or km? (Change from when it was imported by the US guy)?

Well then, I wonder what the main calibration of the Speedo is now.
