Sounds about right, I remember the bloke we bought it from said it was made in WA. Seemed to be well made enough though, and was registered and driven for a time before we got it. Even had Eureka badges on it (which I think I still have)...
I know there were other owners that had a lot of difficulty getting replacement windscreens so I quite liked the flat screen on this one!
Watching a car resto show on tv last night and they had bought a Sterling Kit car
I watched the same show and the car was also known as a Purvis Eureka which used a vw beetle chassis and engine. They were built in Dandenong Victoria under license.
Starting out in life as a British kit car named the ADD Nova, the sports car design was spotted by Aussie Allan Purvis during a trip to Britain in 1971. The holiday quickly became a business trip, as he negotiated licensing production of the sports car back home.
He wasn't the only one to do so; the design was exported worldwide. America received its own version, called the Sterling, while South Africa had the Eagle. Sold locally under the banner of Purvis Motors, the kit car was renamed Eureka, paying tribute to the miners that rebelled against the colonial authorities at the Eureka Stockade. Their flag was even adopted as the company's logo.
