I bought off an old fella who couldn't drive it anymore after open heart surgery (don't ask, won't tell). Had a blown head gasket. Fixed it (by replacing the 4M with another 4M).
Drove it like that for a year till it blew another head gasket (thankyou silly little $5 dollar hose for splitting). I sat around for a month pining about what to do about the old rig. So then I bought this,
pulled this out of it,
and then dropped it into where we thought it couldn't quite go.
The fat ugly bespectacled guy with the goatie is moi.
Unfortunately, the driver's side bank of cylinders wanted to share the same space as the steering box so I farmed the car off to have this done.
Then I fitted some big old XD rotors at the front, Toyota Supra brakes at the back and a Hilux LSD (custom tailshaft too).
Now it looks like this.
Managed to keep the 4 speed auto and with a bit of stufffing around it's all hooked up to the column shift too (took me a year to find the 1967 model auto column - hardest part of the project).
Needs paint badly. Hoping to get some steel wheels made to fit the hubcaps sometime in the next year.
It's a tow car for this thing.
Look, it's ugly and definately not everybody's cup of tea, but I love it. Rips a good skid too.
