Vale Holden ute?

Just found this on the (occasionally dodgy) CarsGuide site.... I'm not convinced the journalist is the best man for the job, but your thoughts would be interesting.

186 turned into a 202

Using a 186 block, what do I have to do to go to 202 Cubes?
Are the pistons the same, but the crank different? How about the con rods?

HD ID plate question

Here is an ID plate from a HD sedan.

Everything about the car is manual trans (the obvious + no powerglide badge on boot lid), yet the ID has - A at end of body number, which I take to mean auto.

Am I missing something?

The car was built & assembled in Adelaide.

Tricks and Treats

Why can't kids just crack the sads in Woolworths or Coles to get chocs and lollies?

That's how we do it in this country, not annoying the neighbors!

Cheers,

Webber

Using a Commo radiator in EH

I'm trying to decide on the easiest and most cost effective way to go with a radiator for my EH with an injected 5 litre in it.

Measuring the gap it looks like this will fit with a minor a mount of cutting on the passenger side of the support panel.

Has anyone else successfully used a commodore radiator in an EH? Seems like a huge $$ saving if it's possible, rather than 750-900 for a custom job

World's Dearest Humpy

Ended up at $600k at the fall of the hammer, + $72k in fees!!!

Not quite a mill then. I'd still rather have the one in Canberra, I know its been restored but the standard of work on it is amazing.
