Hey guys its been a while since i have been on here. (caught 4wd bug and wasted heaps of money also lazy)
I was recently talking about starting to do some bodywork etc on my torana to a fellow worker.He then said that his dad was looking at selling his hq monaro that had been off the road for 20 odd years and about 8 -10 years ago had been painted and never reassembled.
I quickly organised to go look at the car. This is what i found

After a short time a price was agreed on and over the next week i organised some cash and the next weekend i picked her up
Its a 6cyl base model monaro 173 3 speed manual in Lima mint with antique saddle interior. As it has had the GTS treatment I will leave it as it is.
for some reason it was wet rubbed and never polished, The paint work is good but not great, the bonnet has crows feet and it has a fair few imperfections over it but for the time being it will stay as it is . The chrome work has suffered due to sitting for so long.
Over the next week or so i cleaned the car and started working out what was missing. I found heaps of parts are missing so I soon found a rusty hq ute for a few hundered dollars for parts.

The car came as a roller.
It needs all the suspension and brakes going through and i'm still missing a heap of parts
I plan to get it on the road and use it as it is for a few years until i build a sbc and th350/400 for it
