I think everyone with one in Australia wants to run a V8. Sorry, but I think it's scrap.

Hey guys, nice thread. Love some of the pics particularly with Brocky driving.

I know this is a bit unrelated to the actual topic but are early Commodore K-frames actually different from six cylinder to V8? I thought they were the same and were just a matter of swapping engine mounts.

I had a visit the other week from the owner of this one.

It's had the VH conversion, as well as the V8 and commodore dash. Nice looking car. Much nicer in my opinion with the VH panels.

There was only a handful of Directors fitted with IRS, & this was the Opel unit as per the Monza. This is different to the later IRS in the Australian Commodores/Statesmans. I've never needed new bushes, so can't help on that one. Sorry.
