Perentti anyone heard of them?

i'm am just after info from anyone who has owned one or has helped build one, from what i've gathered they are a corvette replica based on a holden 1tonne ute chassis (yes i realise this is ford forums but i can't seem to find anything anywhere else)

Re: Perentti anyone heard of them?

Ron this may not help but i do remember street machine ran adds for the perentti ,i think it may have been a work shop that specialised in them about 85 i think they also were trying to push the two door vk i think it was. If you contact streetmachine or ill have a look through some of my old s/machine books see if i can find the add. chris.

Re: Perentti anyone heard of them?

Yup. You are spot on based on a Holden 1 tonner. So they can use a 253-308 V8. I saw one once back in the 80's from what I can recall they didn't shorten the chassis so the proportions lokked a bit strange compared to a 69-83 Corvette. I think that the headlights were hidden behind a perspex screen rather than pop-ups.

Re: Perentti anyone heard of them?

yeh they have an extra quarter window at the rear of the cabin so they are a bit longer, and they have a boot plus a full tilt front end. what i'm wanting to know is has anyone or does anyone know about troubles with registering them?

Re: Perentti anyone heard of them?

I was part of the Component Car Club back in the early '90s. There were a few Parenti's in the club, though they were mainly Melbourne based. From memory the kits came from counrty Victoria; Bendigo or Ballarat? They were certainly road registerable at the time but interpretation of the ADRs was different from state to state.

Re: Perentti anyone heard of them?

you sure it won't be registerable as a rebodied vehicle and be governed by the epa and adr regs according to the build date on the hq chassis?
