Owner Jacqui Carter is putting the car, which she bought 20 years ago for about $2000, up for sale, with the price tag dependant ‘on the quality of the home’.

The half-antique vehicle will be one of hundreds of items for sale at more than 40 stalls set up at the Conservation Council WA’s (CCWA) Spring Festival, which is a part of the national Garage Sale Trail.

CCWA director Piers Verstegen said the initiative was a good way for people to recycle and reduce their consumption of materials.

‘It is also about bringing communities together,’ he said.

‘It’s a chance to reduce our impact on the environment as well as engaging with other groups.’

The Spring Festival will also feature environmental talks, planting with Josh Byrne and kids spaces at the Perth Cultural Centre.

The trail’s co-founder Andrew Valder said the initiative, which will see thousands of sales set up on October 26, aimed to promote sustainability while buyers could also find some hidden gems.
