Hi I am re-listing because although I had a couple of guys who wanted the car and asked me to remove it from the site last time it was on they have since pulled out or just not turned up when the said they where going to. so here it is again. I have had this utility for 12 years. it had lived its life around the riverland and had sat for 20 years before a local did an average restoration job on the car. It was then purchased by a guy in the adelaide hills who left it sitting in a shed for a few years before I bought the car. It was original then and I still have all the factory engine. gearbox. diff. brakes. etc. in storage which will all go with the car. Since then I have changed out the engine and put a very strong small block. I had this engine built for me by Lewis Racing engines and it has approximately 3-4. 00 ks on it. I also had a Turbo 350 built with a shift kit and a 3000 stall. upgraded the brakes with four wheel discs. the diff is a borg warner with 3. 89 gears. I am only selling as I have run out of undercover car space with my collection and do not want to see the car deteriorating. Engine:010 Block. Wiesco Pistons 40 Thou. 4 Bolt Block. Manley H beam Rods. Balanced. Decked. Crane HCT 300 Cam. Rollermaster Gearset. Hi Volume Sump. Mellings oil pump. Pro Comp Alloy Heads. 64CC Chambers. Flow 305 CFM through intake. Stainless Valves. Double Valve springs. Roller Rockers. Hurricane Intake Manifold. 10. 5 to 1 Compression. Clevite H Bearings. 50 DP Holley. Had the engine on a Dyno when new to set distributor. jets. etc. no power runs as I wanted to get some miles on it before having a full dyno. should be around 450 Horsepower. Body:A bit rough a little rust nothing bad. small section in left hand guard above wheel. small 20 cent section in left hand door. a couple of cracks in leaded area behind cab. but could do with a tidy up. paint not great. I have been thinking about a rat rod look flatten paint and put some 1950s graphics on it and it would look seriously cool and if the car doesn't sell I may do this. Interior is okay could do with a bit of TLC. The tray is all good. no rust a little knocked around as they all are but better than most you will see. Chassis is great no rust or damage. The pictures form part of the description but I sugget that you come and have a look. my reserve is less than the cost of the engine alone. Call me if you like Graham 0488 018 363. but please don't waste my time as I can not be bothered with timewasters. Pament is cash. if you want to use pay pal you pay the fees and the car isnt released until I have the cash in my bank.
