This car was rebuilt from the ground up and completed in 2007. Everything was done on the car and has been built to be shown and driven. The underside has been detailed to be user friendly while able to be shown in competition. All four coils, sway bar, bonnet hinges, bonnet latch and striker, front apron have been powder coated for durability.
The engine block, suspension parts, diff and door hinges have all been smoothed. The firewall and inner guards have been smoothed. All unused holes have been welded up on the inner guards and radiator support panels. A custom made fan shroud and alloy and chrome parts detail the engine.
Interior is basically factory with a pearl coat steering wheel. The stereo and extra gauges can be raised out of sight or lowered for viewing when driving while the aerial and rear speakers are hidden.
Wheels are Chev Rally 15 X 7 with BF Goodrich tires on the front while the rears which were modified to suit are 15 X 10 with 295/50/15 BF Goodrich tires.
I have owned the car since 1991 and has been a big part of my life. While it is right hand drive, it is actually an import and has been converted to right hand drive in 1966. It still has the original black and white rego plates which were issued to it in 1966/67. This means it has an American dash and gauge cluster, different heater and factory fuelie heads.
