Dan's HX Kingswood 308

Sold the hatch and picked up the new toy yesterday

Move to Other Cars area if not appropriate

1976 HX Kingswood
Chamois Exterior & Interior
308
T400
Power Steering

Needs
Shifter/console replaced with standard one
Buckets replaced with originals or a bench seat (triton seats fitted)
Strips fitted back to the outside
Tune (didnt like the cold collie start)

Wants
New manifold/carby
New rocker covers
Lowered
Tint
Venetian

Got all the original books and receipts with the car, fairly short list of previous owners.

Good solid body bar a few small bits of cancer starting, nothing too big of a deal to stress about.

OUT2ANIL8: My LS1 Torana is not affected by this purchase. The Hatch was a little too big of a project for me after all the headaches i've had with the LS1 conversion. I purposely wanted a Kingswood because they are the base model.

Its tagged as 253/Trimatic, the dealer the car was bought from fitted the 308/T400 in the mid 80's.

I'll send dan89 a PM and see what hes got, cheers!

I bought it, i didn't get home until midnight so maybe he wanted the cash?

The grille will be changing to HZ as that is all that you can buy new.

Some more pics including the original purchase documents etc.

New carby will be ordered next week! The one on it works fine but should be in a museum.

WTF.

Just because it's a Torana doesn't automatically mean it's a "collectable" or rare, or expensive either.....

So many other factors to take into consideration.

haha i got 4 cars, can't really be that pissed off. She absolutely loved the torana from the day she came and bought it with me nearly 5 years ago, so that will always be around. I've smashed almost 30k into it now to

the trade off of selling the vn and kingswood after so little time is that she gets off my back via being able to spend money on the house and i get to get back into burnouts

currently looking around at a few vn ss's and stuff around the 4k limit, gone are the days when you could get an average condition vt ls1 with native smelling interior for cheap

Its gay hey Bax but burnouts will prevail!

i think that bloke was talking about the hatch not the 4 door. i'd much rather an o.g, non rusted out, running, 308 kingers over the hatch that sold. but yer bummer you're selling up.

there's a cheap vp ss up just today on gumtree ($1750 bibra lake)

its not a ss, bt1... they were ss spec though, saw that but not really my thing even though its cheap... been the super bunky burnout route before (the v6 gemini) and yeah its kind of a waste of effort with crap cars... even though the skids are good i'd like to get a bit more competitive, i have been building a second ls1 for carby duties for a while for future skid engine so yeah chasing a slightly cooler car like a non-white vn ss or something
