Purchased from Colin kidd (Sydney) December 12, 1998. The car has been in storage since he bought it in 1982 and to his knowldge unused for the previous 15 years.
Bodywork & Chassis
after working a number of years after hours I finally completed the bodywork ready for my spray painter. While the body was being painted the chassis was dismantled and as no repairs were required it was sandblasted and painted in 2 pack satin black.
Everything that was taken off the chassis was renewed or reconditioned.
Engine & Gearbox
The engine has been completely reconditioned with a big block Chevrolet rear oil seal conversion. Motor has been completely balanced and a sedan overdrive gearbox was installed with little modification. The radiator has been re-cored leaving the crank hole and a 5 bladed fan added.
Headlights, tail lights, rear blinkers and park lights were all renewed including wiring loom and a lead post 12v battery.
All interior was re trimmed in black connolly leather with black piping, new tonneau covers and soft top. Side curtains and frames were repaired, power coated and reassembled.
Front bar and windscreen surround were repaired and all other brightware was either rechromed or renewed
Luggage Rack, Smiths Heater, Clip on air scoop under radiator, Mesh headlight guards, and Lucas driving and fog lights
