Have recently purchased a Holden WB v8 Satesman off Gumtree and it has major problems, not even drivable. I have tried contacting the seller but have had no luck. I got the car to Holden where they have the history of the vehicle. The sellers had to undesputably know the car was completely stuffed and unsafe. How can we get our $6800 back and return the car?

Depends on the terms of the sale contract. If the seller is not in business you may have to take them to court. Have a lawyer eyeball the ad and your correspondence to see what you can do.
