Looks very tidy and definitely worth hanging onto. Bummer about the hub cap, they usually hang on really well in my experience. I guess you lost the "H" too. Although I did lose a wheel trim somewhere in the Flinders Ranges 20 yrs ago..........

So the car is currently at Frank Tedesco autos getting an complete overhaul - fixing all issues others had supposedly fixed! Really surprised by the dodgey shit some people do. Refreshing to find someone like Frank and have him and his son work the car.... absolute perfectionists

Should be ready after Christmas .... then all I need is a steering box to get reconditioned, then get the final bit of rust fixed then it should be 100% complete.

So after spending a fortune at a local shop Frank Tedesco has fixed up all the dodgey shit that they did

New clutch and slave cyclinder, new hand brake, gear box mounts, and new rear seal, new universal joints, replaced the tail shaft and front yolk, replaced the leaking tappit cover, changed fly wheel, rear box cover was missing so replaced that! Speedo cable, new fuel sender.
brakes fixed - dickhead who did them previously had machined them way too much and had wrong brake shoes on them!!! new brake master cyclinder, drums, brake shoes and wheel cylinders, fixed the gear box and gear linkages and fixed the door handles and door locks

Drives like a new car lol

Just needs some whitewalls and spats then done

Stephen he did a small run - he may do more in the future
I placed my order mid (?) last year, the first batch had problems with casting then the 2nd were ruined getting finished. This was the third lot.
Hopefully worth the wait!
I think there are possible plans to make more products such as manifolds and headers.

Nothing wrong with it Mick just can’t have too many rocker covers! I already have a front breather and had been looking for a twin breather for awhile
