I know this car, was in wellington with a 10a nosecone plates were 1LOWHO, a mate of mine bought it up to Auckland (Darren) and fitted the flares and BBS blacked out etc

 Very tidy bodywise, guard hacking aside, good score!

Shit yeah, if this comes up half as good as your impala it’ll be so gooood!

Fighting the urge to pull it too bits and start from scratch haha, going to do enough to get it useable/safe etc for summer is the plan at the moment.

If you can make this as slick as your other rides it will be amazeballs. 

That said, I already like the look of it even as you bought it, a few minor tidies and sorted. 

Yeah pretty much the plan now, tidy up a heap of things, getting it looking good and everything going which is a decent job in itself.

ah yes interesting i did know it was from wellington thats apparently when this motor got put in it which was supposedly a pretty nice wee 13b built by Lawton at the time...Body is solid and in good nick, couple of minor rust gremlins to sort and the guard hacking but to be expected for its age. Was suprised how mint and straight the floors and sills etc are on it.

Nice work on the return to chrome!

As an FYI you can buy the number plate brackets from Phil’s Rotaries for the front bumper.

Worth getting so you can mount the front number plate properly.

Good result on the chrome. Looks way better and the price was right.

Best part being the price alright! Was scared to pull it off and find it was rubbish haha
