hi all

just purchased this car from Adelaide flew over  on saturday and paid $2500 and drove it back to sydney

story so far

gearbox sh#t itself about 3 hrs  out of the city so my son and i drove the car back to sydney in 2nd gear doing between 70-80 km/h it was a hard long drive, fuel gauge was faulty, wipers didnt work(and of course it rain heavly)no radio.
car has a bloody hole in the roof which will be the first thing to go, rust in a few places eg beaver panel , sills and floor, amazingly no rust under the battery (george can verify)
plan at this stage is to get a new box for it and drive it around for a while.

will eventually do a full rebuild but like to enjoy driving it for a few months

not sure what the overall build will be but leaning towards a rb motor and box, bright orange paint, black ZG flares and black rota rb wheels 

i would like to thank george, peter , mike for caming over tonight and discusssing a few items about the car

heres some pics

Looks like a 240K downdraft carb or similar. Probably not doing the car any justice in the performance department.

Hope those seats are going the way of the Dodo :).

Nice car and good honest price for what it is. I'd also recommend fixing mechanical stuff first and body last. At least you can drive it around for a while.

Enjoy the resto. Half the fun is getting there, learning and meeting all the people that will want to help out. Just watch out for your son, he's likely to steal the car off you. ;)

hey everyone


spent most of this weekend cleaning the car up and let me tell you what its come up really clean compaired to what is was.

first thing to go was all that wiring, can honestly say my son and i removed about 100 metres of the stuff from the engine bay and stereo  :o.

my son also fixed the dodgy fuel return line and a few other lines that were not capped properly came out much cleaner and very tidy.

cleaned the interor a little bit fixed the shifter and wipers although they dont return to the bottom of the windscreen when they are switched off. anyone know why ???

finally hit the block and head with the high pressure cleaner and some degreaser. LOOKS VERY SHMICK  8)

time for the all important pictures (only the engine bay for now)

Huge improvement! That's how a zed engine bay should be; clear and uncluttered..Nothing pisses me off more than dodgey wiring especially if it's unnecessary.
