Tow rig is a Holden Commodore SS V Ute. 6.0litre LS2 with 6 speed auto 19" Wheels IRS LSD ABS Leather Exhaust Mods and Inlet Mods. Gets around 30mpg on the Highway and goes very nicely.
My Toy started life as a 1933 Chev Australian bodied 1 1/2 ton truck. It's had a 2" Chop and a 5" Channel over a 1934 Chev Master chassis. The doors are off the Master and have been suicided. The square rear of the roof was cut out and the rounded roof and bigger rear window off the Master fitted. The front end is a hand made cross member with XJ6 Jaguar Mk II suspension and brakes with 4 spot calipers. The rear is a Gallaxy 9" 3.0:1 with Drum brakes. Rear suspension is Leaf Springs. The motor is a 1985 Camaro 305 small block with a 600 Holley Street Avenger and Mallory HEI dissy. A kitted Turbo 350 gearbox sorts the gears out. The extractors can be unplugged, but we gotta run mufflers down here. The guards are the only fibreglass on it. They were moulded off and Indian motorbike and widened to suit the 8" rear and 6" front wheels. (Maximum legal width down here.) Interior is pretty basic with the rear seat from a Toyota Hilux and the original Steering wheel painted pearl and fitted to a collapsible column. There is still heaps of work to go but we have fun with it as it is. It's covered about 10000 miles in the last 2 years, so has plenty of stone chips as trophies.

This was the fun part, building the rolling chassie, Installed the 4" lift, 351W and AOD tranny installed, lockers and new 456 gears and disk brakes all the way around.
Re worked the dash, added all digital gauges, and added a Vintage Air AC unit and added vents in the dash
