Re: here she is
Those are 295's up the back, they look pretty wide in the flesh.
History of the car ....... well
I bought it looking pretty much as it does now, probably paid too much, cause I assumed that it was as good overall as it was visibly. WRONG !! Didn't know much about it all back then, but have learnt the hard way and parted with some pretty serious $$ since. To give you an idea -
Rebuilt 9" LSD 3.50:1 powder coated
Rebuilt Top Loader / new shifter
Completely new clutch
4 New cross drilled & slotted rotors
New 4 core triple flow radiator with twin AU thermos & water pump
New alternator 120amp & new starter motor
Recond power steering box with new lines
Suspension overhauled - new springs/shocks nolathane throughout
Heaps more ..... I stripped the underside of the body and cleaned it up , finishing it off in POR 15 paint so she's like new underneath as well. Fortunately the engine is strong-
650 carb/anti pump up lifters/mild cam/30 thou TRW pistons/blueprinted crank & rods/11 ltr sump pan/2v heads with 4v valves port polish & matchported/accel twin point distrib/race tuned headers into a single 3" pipe.
She's not wild but goes nicely and has a very pleasing note to her.
I've always loved the coupes and just had to have one, but to be honest I never imagined throwing the sort of $$ at it that I have.
Sound familiar ??
