Never been big on build threads, but it feels different with the 240
Bought the '71 240 on eBay as a rolling shell back in Nov(2012). It was missing some gear but was a good body with a lot of original paint and not much rust.
Came with the original block in the passenger footwell, which kinda forced my hand to restoring it rather than chopping it up for flares and an SR or RB(which still may happen:))
It's been off the road for a long time, at least 20years I think, so had to do a brake system overhaul. It Chassis appears to have low kms as well, can't find any history on the car though, NSW RTA has no record of it, QLD wouldn't give me anything, nothing on the PPSR. Anyone know anything about the car? HS30-01273
Got a complete L26 with big cam, extractors and 240 SUs off a mate intending to put all the gear on the original block, but decided to just get it running as is first.
As it sits currently, getting close to paint. Got the engine running the other day, need to make an exhaust next, not making any friends in the neighborhood currently :p
Hopefully going to have it registered by June
