She has had a bare metal paint job orig color. I fitted a mild 351 but still have the orig engine. I also fitted 4w disc and a lsd 9". Still has the orig twin exhaust, just need to connect the extractors up. I need to fit the re trimmed seats, glass and clean out the fuel system due to using a fuel stabilizer and rebuild the carb and new fuel pump and will be ready to hit the road. This old girl ran out of reg in 1988 so only did 10 years on the road hence the 72,000 km.

I bought her new and sold at 5 years old. She went to Canberra, Sydney, and Perth, before coming back to Sydney. I purchased her back in 2016. She's had a full body and underbody paint job but interior trim is still original. The aftermarket bonnet cowl was added while she was in Perth. I fitted the "fake" Simmons to emulate the Moffat/Bond Bathurst cars. I try to drive her regularly so having the 5 speed manual suits me and the FMX is tucked away in the shed along with the original wheels.
