I am taking over where Ryan (thriller) left off in the rusty red rocket.

As you see from the pics it's a very clean example of a rust bucket.

I have heard this car calling for my help from over the ranges for a few years now and

Now I finaly get the cas to save it

Any way check out the pics and enjoy

Good to see you got another car, there is a bit of work there alright but nothing that can't be resolved with a bit of work and I'm sure you're capable of doing it right.

 

I know Ryan didn't want to sell it so glad to see it went to a good home. Especially after you missed out on #150 (sorry about that!).

That's ok gav. I rely wasn't financial enough at the time

 

Things have turned around since then

 

This one is more for the thrill of the build than the end result

I may or may not keep it when the build is done depending how attached I get

But the plan is if I sell it to use the money to restore my blue 260z 2 seater

Well mate I admire you for giving it the love that it needs to be back on the the road. It will be a big thrill and a long chase. I will enjoy following your build. ( I can't believe you are already talking about what you are going to go after this one). Good luck mate.

I bought it from Stuart Wilkins motorsport in Sydney, they got the car west of Sydney out near Cattai Ridge of memory where it sat in a paddock. The car did run when I had it (not to well) but amazingly it would move around under it's own steam and it was fairly original as far as all the plastics being there and in the engine compartment, just very rusty.

Wow. It actually had a passenger side floor back then

 

Sort of! Here's a snap from about a week after I got it & had taken out the seats.

There was more sound deadening there than actual metal floor.

 

 

Looking forward to seeing it all come together!

You ripped that roof turret off quick, shame you didn't take more photos of the process and where all the spot welds are, that rear beaver panel area looks shagged.

 

Do you have another piece or was it bent bad?
