Restorations and build ups. We will test this and see how it goes. A personal forum for members with major builds going on. This way we can keep all the posts together. If you have a major build going on let me know and I will set you up with your own area. If you have threads already running also let me know and I will then move them to your area. See the two I have added to get an idea of what I mean.

Willies 1979 4WD Wagon

My latest acquisition a 1979 4WD Wagon (my first Gen 1 wagon) made it to its new home in the Blue Mountains NSW from Bacchus Marsh in VIC on Monday. Overall I’m very happy with the Purchase for $500.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Car-/2813...p2047675.l2557

Apart from the almost standard cracked dash the interior is mint. It is a genuine barn find as it has been parked in a shed for many years since apparently blowing a head gasket. Engine is seized but, I have a spare EA71 sitting on the shelf. I’ll add to the thread as I play with her.

Nice (for a GEN1 )

Eek! What is that thing in the background ?

Willy is singular, more than one is Willies ? Or is that possessive Willies...think it is more obsessive possessive disorder

Why not just leave it, whack a coupla grand on it and shove it on ebay.co.uk and flush Giles out ?

It's an EK Holden I got for $10 on ebay.

Yes glad you picked up on that, you didn't think I could be this silly with just one Willy?

I was thinking of chucking on some black Sunraysias with chrome dress rims, a set of unequal length headers with a nice muffler and re jetting the Hitachi....... What do you reckon 5500 on ebay UK?

Sweet ride, you have a box of early suby parts on your way which will come in handy sorting this gorgeous girl out!

Who did you use to transport it from Vic to Blue Mountains?
I used to live in Hazelbrook along railway parade, I'm pretty sure you popped in once to pick up some suby parts.

Wow mate, that is super clean! Must have been a grandma's vehicle, garaged all it's life with the generally dry Baccus Marsh weather conditions doing the other part of the caring...

You should've dropped in on your way past - either in Shepp or Cobaw, you would've been pretty close to both locations in your travels!

Has Giles sent you a PM with an offer yet?

Cheers

Bennie
