Modifications/Restoration:

 I purchased the car as a resto project and completely rebuilt it and converted it to chrome bumpers. I acquired a brand new crate 3.5 litre long motor from Adelaide and used a Supra gearbox with a Dellow bellhousing, 3.07

V8 differential and 72 spoke 15x5" chrome wire wheels.

The conversion was made easier by the shell being a UK car with the V8 modifications to the engine bay being factory original.
