The "Rotary Power" is just a sticker on an otherwise flat tailgate surface. I believe the b1600 and b1800 were the exact same gate other than the sticker. I dont know what it costs to ship a tailgate overseas but it may almost be more cost effective to get just the decal from http://vintagerotarydecals.com/

REPU Tailgate

The B-1600 and the Courier had a tailgate the same as an early repu except, B-1600 has stamped "MAZDA" script, Courier has stamped "FORD" script, the B-1800 I believe has a diferrent tailgate, (center handle)

So, what do you Aussies have...

...that we never got over here, that would make for a trade worthy of the extreme shipping expense? (And, how far from Adelaide are you located?)

Thanks to eveyone for setting me straight on the tailgate issue, though I was dissapointed to learn that Rotary Power was not embossed at least I can order a decal kit and fabricate a new skin for an old T/gate frame.
I just picked up a second B1600 (freebie)today and am toying with the idea of building a full REPU replica it could be the only one in the country as even rotary nuts here are suprised when I show REPU pictures.
Ill send photos when I workout how and Ill work on a parts list also I will need things like wheel arches, a grill taillights and badges aswell as decent photos .
Im thinking skyish blue.
As for what we have that you dont ,think Holden but you already have our Monaro nee GTO
