Welcome back to the fold. I hope you will be joining AROCA vic and we will see this car on the track.
You need to count the teeth on the flywheel to see if it’s the 2lt or 1.8lt flywheel then match the starter to that.
You want rubber carb mounts. Regardless of what anyone says. For some reason the ones we have been fitting come with loose studs that need to be tightened before installation otherwise they give no problems.
I plan to join the club this month, just gotta get around to doing it. Then between this and my 75 3lt I want to get both to the track.
The car needs a rear main so likely I'll pull the engine before roadworthy, unless it needs doughnuts then I'll do it from below.
Will send you a pm, thanks.
Glad she found a good home. Looks like good bones on her, the front inner guards look good from your photo and that’s always a real plus with these cars. Have fun!
We didn't find any structural rust going over it, and having dealt with a lot of it on my original gtv and then even more on dad's we had pretty good ideas of what to look for. That and the fact it was driving sold the car for me.
It has rust though, and the paint is shot, way too far gone for just cleaning up where required. Underneath isn't pretty, lots of gravel rash surface rust and oil. Receipts do have the car described as a rally car in the engineers report for the front brake upgrade.
So I'll get the removable panels blasted and painted and just do sections of the body at a time back to bare metal. Clean it back and get a protective coat on. Not fussed about having it pretty or blended, just smooth. Will keep the blue when I paint bits, but likely to keep the consistent colour all over, I'll turn my hand to wrapping it blue.
But that's a long way off yet.
Running and registered first.
Picture of my first gtv. Dad and I did that up between the ages of 14 and 18. ~2 weeks after getting my licence I got rear ended by a drunk Friday knock off beers tradie.
Paint looks like crows feet of the apocalyptic type. But it's not all over. The roof is the worst section.
I'll need more work done and photos for more posts haha
