Hi guys well here is the start of a new journey with a new RevZed project.  Just did the deal on this 74 260 (pre emissions) from NSW - it's stock and an auto...so yep here comes my 3rd manual conversion! I'll keep everyone posted as this one gets the 'Rev Build up'.

I forget you poor guys in Oz got all the emission stuff we were lucky here in NZ as my 76 (build) 77 sold car never had any of that junk.

Gold will go and will probably go either nice gumetal silver or white with black diamond pattern vinyl and leather interior.

Congrats  ;D
I knew this car was a good buy when I saw it on the car-sites..
I love the gold colour, not that many around...(except for Lurches)..
anyway, call Canberra Carways, quite a reputable company. They do car transport between sydney & melbourne. (02) 6242 7310  also www.carways.com.au...
Josh, you should also try these guys..

Ah! I will do. If it's cheap enough I'll be transporting it for sure. Otherwise I'll drive mine down in the next month or so, and I'm sure we can find a driver (*cough* Scott) to join me on the journey down in your new toy Rev!

Ah just saw this post. Good to see you found a 2 seater. I remember selling my bus and getting the shorter 2 seater and initially found it strange to look back and see no seats or reach out and touch the back tyre whilst the window is down sitting at a set of lights in summer. Will be good to follow the build up of this one!

All the best with the car mate.

congratulations Rev.

cant wait for build up process.....

yeah not a big fan of gold either. though like your plans Dave cant wait to see it all happen. 

i love the look of 2 seaters with flares (well got a set for my 240) but i still cringe at the idea of cutting the guards to fit them..... hmmmm still thinking about it........ yep flares are going on cutting or no cutting.

but i bet u miss ur 2+2 than again u got two more so maybe u dont  :P
