ID Codes what do they mean

I recently purchased a 2 door 73 model off a good friend of mine. He has had it for the last eight years but knows little about the original details of the vehicle. He bought it some years after it had been resprayed gun metal grey & had the interior done & a HX premier twin headlight front(i think), so it is far from original & after being out in the weather since he bought it, its not looking great.

I need some help deciphering the numbers hoping to trim & paint it back to original or close to it. It has a 350 chev engine, turbo 400 trans & 10 bolt diff, though I dont think original.

top loader into 202 vc commodore, doable?

G'day all im really strapped for time here so i'll make this quick,
can a borg warner top loader 5 speed (there's a thought, I thought they only came with four speeds)
easily mount up behind a holden 6 without too many drama's? the top loader is supposed to be a fairly strong box i believe, but will clearance, tailshaft length/fitment, modified floorpan come into play in a vc commodore??
I given up on looking for reasonably priced bloody toyota boxes and the m20 is on the way out, like they were when they left the factory!!
Cheers, ANY help is appreciated!!

Heater and shocks

Hi there,
Have come across this fantastic site by trying to find out how to get the heater in my 1972 HQ Monaro to produce heat, as its freezing driving around NZ in Winter.
I have only owned this model for three months running it on LPG, but I have noticed that the air shocks put in to carry the xtra weight of the LPG tank are leaking.
Do you think they should be replaced by the new oil/gas shocks.[what type and model?] I would also like to tow a caravan and tandem trailer on occassion.
Any help on these two things would be really appreciated...
Thanks

State of the Nation

Fella's, as you know, Johnny takes control of the senate shortly. As most of you know, this has an instant effect on nearly all of us. With this spineless little f*** carrying on with more false promises of no game playing, a lot of us who have the juice to stand up, are being accused of being the ruin of the nation. On top of this, fuel prices are going through the roof with no sign of relief. Johnny says that the fuel taxes are reasonable! With close to 80% tax on durries and grog, surely the sawn off c*** can give us a break. Shortly this great land will be similar to Europe, with the two litres dominating the highways. As we all agree, only milk and juice come in two litres. Let's tell the runt that(Quote"Angry Anderson") "WE WON'T BE BEATEN".
