Location: Northside, Brisbane
Item Condition: Daily driver but needs rustwork
Body: The 74 car has rust in nearly every panel, rear drivers side floor replaced with all new metal bent up into the correct shape, passengers side just a bit of bent metal as the other side took about a week to make. This body is fixable if you are keen however my plan was to transfer everything into the 76 shell:
The 76 shell looks to be fairly rust free, small patch around the rear left taillight holes, some on the top of the door sill (near where you push the weatherstripping on) on the passenger side.
Mechanical: 74 Car running and registered until the 17th of Jan (selling unregistered but can be driven)
76 shell currently has loose rear suspension with wheels, no front wheels
Price and Payment Conditions:
Registration: not selling registered
Extra Info: This car has been my daily driver for about 5 years. The body is fairly rusty but included is a tidy shell (plus a few extra guards, hatch etc) which looks to have had the majority of the rust fixed. The best part about this car is that the interior is 99% complete and in fairly good condition. A brand new center console was put in a few years ago along with reupholstered seats and new carpets etc. I was going to transfer all of the parts into the 76 shell and sell the car for a little profit but I have decided to go back to uni this year whilst I work full time. As a result I will have no time or money to work on this car and it will be taking up valuable garage space.
As this was my daily driver, the majority of the components such as suspension, alternator, batteries etc have been replaced quite recently. See the list below for everything that I can think of:
In the past year or so (probably done less than 10000 klms)
New Clutch Master Cylinder
New Clutch Slave Cylinder
Rebuilt Alternator from http://www.kedroncarelectrics.com.au/
Rebuilt Brake Booster
New Brake Lines
New Brake Vacuum Lines
Rear Brake cylinders honed and had a kit through them
Rebuilt British SU Carbies (http://www.viczcar.c...pic,5896.0.html)
Replaced within the last 5 years max:
New Front Shocks
New Rear Shocks
New Thermostat Housing
Replaced Fuel Pump (used)
Replaced Starter Motor (used)
The Interior is one of the more complete I have seen:
New Center Console
Doors are complete and clean with trim, arm rests with chrome cover trim, winders, black plastic in door handle.
All interior panels are present including plastic panels in rear (some minor cracking).
The only thing that really needs attention is the dash which is cracked like most cars. (I might be able to hook you up with a guy who has a dash with the dash cap for a decent price)
The engine blows smoke under load and leaks a little bit of oil from the rear of the head, this should be rebuilt but still drives.
The gearbox was replaced with Steve's old 5 speed. He bought it as a rebuilt box however it has always whined in every gear except 4th. It has been fine for the past 6 months I have had it installed.
I have probably missed a lot, if you are genuinely interested come have a look and I will tell you as much as I can about the car, rust etc. I've been a member on the forum for a while and I won't try and hide or cover up anything like some of those other freshly painted z's you see for sale.
Here is a an unfinished blog for the car I started a few months ago to keep a full history of the car (tried to fill in as much as I can!)

If it doesn't sell I guess I'll just have to do it up!!
