This one I'm watching....

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motor ... 021241.htm

I want the tow bar but I'm not sure if it will fit an HB?...anyone?

and the front sway bar, lower arms, rear axle.

But its always a shame to break a saveable car isn't it! might have a look at it if in nelson soon.....

Thats a bit wierd..thats the same one that was for sale a few weeks ago..from what i remember it was in Blenheim..they paid $500 for it..got it to Nelson..so theyve obviously chewed off to much and biffing it along..
this is the one Im thinking of getting just now..

I think the tow bars are different for HB/HC. Both cars look quite good.

Freight rates and no rego put that Magnum out of reach..note..ignore Vivas on the wrong island..

so..typically after a few weeks..the Pearls starter jammed..so i took it off..cleaned it..put it back on..nothing..funny that..so off again..oily man on bicycle enters auto electrician..nice old man says..its stuffed..so oily man finally goes to the resting place of his dead Viva..his mates yard..armed with handful of tools...much wrestling with jack to get the bastard up in the air so oily man can fit his anorexic frame underneath without being crushed...after some muffled screams and the use of an extra hand...now got another starter motor..

Its under there somewhere..

i attempting to dissect Kermit

Fed up with expensive air filters..try old mattress foam and chicken wire
Image
I will fit..just under the sump..
Image
A not so painful extraction..
Image

And i can have this to..1977 Magnum...its absolutely shagged but complete mechanically..
