Yep the service books show Pellew and Moore (Broekn Hill department store) as the first owner. There is also a Kaczmarek Motors sticker on the engine lid.

I drove over to Vic on the weekend to bring it back on Sat/ Sun and then drove it for the first time on Monday. It drives really well, the 1776 in it feels bigger 8)

Going the pull the stickers of the doors though and go with another theme......

It sits nice.

Do you know what is now where the dealership was?
No matter what happens they can't take you out in the street and shoot you......

Put the old girl into service moving my girlfriends daughter into her new place today 8)

As it turns out, Pellew and Moore had a double cab lowlight after this one, it was owned for a while by my mates brother in Broken Hill!

Sounds like you are happy with the purchase, I’ve regretted selling my single ever since I advertised it.

Thanks Matt, good to see you!

I'll get some update pics up soon. Yes the blue and red on the gates has been painted over and the stickers removed from the doors.

Drove it to work Monday and Tuesday and now the weather's gone to sh#t again......Shane at Cartek has given it a bit of love and sorted out a few issues including a tendency to blow oil coolers - the oil pressure spring the engine builder used was a little too stiff! Also had an alignment so its driving a whole lot better and gears are much easier to find.

Plenty of little jobs to get it where I want it, but I'm loving it and it will become a fair weather daily driver I think 8)

One of the guys at work is pretty artistic and is going to do a bit of sign writing on the doors and maybe gates for me :wink:

Cheers Guys, drove it to work again today.

Gordon, the Hurst you supplied is all painted and going on soon :wink: I like a bit of frontal protection, feeling a little bit vulnerable at the moment....I also want to weld in an extra seatbelt mounting point so I can have 3 point instead of lap sash belts.

Hopefully Beatts and I can park side by side at Cars and Coffee Unley on Sunday and wow the crowds!!
