    Busted arse HK Holden ute

    So... this is my ute. I bought it off an alcoholic in Queanbeyan about 3 or 4 years ago. I'm the third owner. The original owner bought it new in Alice springs and kept it for 27 years. Most of the drivers side was painted with a brush at some point. Its got charm. Originally it came equipped with a mighty 161 and 3 speed crash box. By the time I got it home (other side of town) it was time for the motor and box to come out so I didn't get beaten at the lights by any more cyclists. It now sports a big block 202 and traumatic. Future plans include a 350, some kjnd of transmission and a 9"

              Yeah I drove this fucker everywhere at christmas time, its about to become my daily again. 350 is a little bit off... have to build an engine first.

              I've also got a pretty solid Premier that will get some love one day, maybe an LS powered daily or a blown small block death trap. I don't wanna go to spastic on the ute or cut it up too much

                          Nah you're right Muz I get your point. I just dislike the slowness. If it was matching numbers and original when I got it I would have been very hesitant, but its just a solid old banger thats full of bog and the motor in it was a reco. I've still got the 161, crash box, clutch pedal and original column. Anything I pull off I put away and avoid cutting anything. One day I might resto it but I love the fact I can drive it anywhere and not stress about it.

                          The chev will be a relatively stock looking thing, tin rocker covers and air cleaner and a bit weathered looking. Might put some discs brakes on the front of it though!

                          P.S. If you can read the original sales document in the first pic you'll see it came with the full 'gts' type dash with amp, oil pressure and temp gauges. The ipod connectivity isn't factory though :D
