I saw a HG sedan and 4 XY Fords, an Austin Healey and a Zephyr whilst driving.

NOTHING!!! as usual.
BTW i reckon this is a great idea Al.
Oh tell a lie, I was over at my oldies today and mum pulled out an old photo album for my kids to look through.
There was a pic of me washing dads near new VB SL/E with the 253. Arctic white with the green velour interior.
BTW it had those stupid headlight wipers. (Well i thought so back in 1981). I suppose they'd be pretty cool today

This is from the FB/EK forum. It has good pics of the process of putting a Torana front end in an EK. All early Holdens would be basically the same process.

I saved it long ago for future reference. I don't think it would cost any more than an aftermarket front end and would probably give a better result.

now that old bus would confuse some at the lights!..I've notice many people go out of their way to not get behind you when driving an old car..because they think its a POS and wont go fast...in my case with a stock Low Comp 161 they are right lol...but the FC with a 5litre would surprise them...ps my 308 Statesman can usually keep up with most basic 4 cylinders but at huge fuel expense :-)

2: Is it on a HQ/HZ ute/one tonner chassis?

Sorry mate didn't see the owner, It is a chev motor ls by the looks. Pretty wild steering set up by the looks. Steering box in front of the motor. Wild bit of gear in the wet or dry (no weight in the rear). I think the guards are made from 44 gallon drums.

Looks like the EH was hit pretty hard.
Has he got the panels to fix it.
If he hasn't I know of a rear cut in a shed near here that might be for sale if he needs it. I know the owner will never use it.

Yeah it was mate,the impact of the shunt made her also go into another car.I think he's got most panels and in the process of getting some more.Thanks for that David see if he does want to sell it and I'll keep it in mind I'll probably see him this week and let him know.I'll give you a yell if he needs that rear cut!...
Edit,just sent my mate a txt and he's interested in it David if you could get some pics of it on your phone to would be good,I'll then give you his number to send them to him,thanks mate!..
