One tonner

Hi to all,
I am led to believe that Holden once upon a time, had an assembly plant in Acacia Ridge, Brisbane. Can anyone confirm this & can you tell me where it was & who occupies the building now. Thank you for any information.

Restamping chassis's

Image: 

Hi guys.
Really like to hear peoples opinions on this. Of my four old holdens, 2 have had the chassis's changed sometime in their pasts. I have a genuine sandman which has been placed on a different chassis cos of a front bingle and a genuine L32 SLR torana which has had the front chassis rail changed. Prob for the same reasons. Im interested in getting them restamped with the original numbers. I reckon I could find someone to do it. Apparently changing the torana is fairly easy and you can buy the die kits for 60 bux.
Now the cars arent stolen and im not selling them so its not for any dodgey reason. Its only for me and i reckon though its probably illegal (?) it seems kinda legit if its for the right reasons. I just dont want those authenticity questions having over the cars all the time, as they are the genuine article.
Just wondering if anyone has any knowledge or experience or opinions on this, or even if possible, some contacts for someone who can do it? In Victoria. The original chassis's for both cars are as far as I know, gone to holden heaven, so id like to reinstate the original numbers. Any thoughts or contacts? Cheers.

Hydraulic Clutch T56 6 speed Gearbox

Has anybody installed a T56 Gearbox into any of their old holdens? I wish to retain the hydarulic clutch slave cylinder in the Gearbox, this type is inline with the throw out bearing. I just need to know whether the original Master Cylinder from my HK will be compatible with the new Slave cylinder.

Can Anyone shed some light on this for me?

Regs,
Presty

Matching Numbers INTERPRETATION

I was watching this Ebay auction for a "genuine one owner matching numbers SS HQ" with the intention of bidding on it. $6000 however was quite a bit more than I was willing to pay. [http://cgi.ebay.com....|HQ SS LINK]

Especially when a day before the auction is due to end the seller posts up more pics in another auction of a 2006 rego sticker showing the SS has a 308 fitted. [http://cgi.ebay.com....|MORE PICS]
No mention of the engine not being the original to the car at all and when I questioned the seller on this
"It appears your SS is not a matching numbers car as you have stated as the rego sticker show a 308 fitted with an engine number different to the engine number recorded on the delivery papers. Can you confirm the original engine comes with the car or not. Thanks."

His reply..."matching numbers meaning vin id match have listed all numbers you are more than welcome to inspect thanks"

Now my interpretation of a matching numbers car is the engine, transmission, diff etc should all match as well. Not just the VIN, chassis and ID plates. To me his auction was fraudulent as the car was not what it was advertised to be.

I checked all this and didn't bid but I pity the poor bugger that payed top dollar for a very rusty SS that is not all matching numbers.

I wonder if the Muscle car segment on TT had anything to do with the spike in prices on Ebay this weekend as I see MrHQgts's 4 door ended at over $10,000 this time around. Well done mate, hope the winner honours his committment and pays up.
