Sounds like you're on the road to fun & losing cash, lol. Fixing the roof isn't too much hassle if you can find a good donor car at a wrecker. I did with my wagon. Certainly easier than tryin to create a monster & get it engineered for road use.
As for the torrie 9er you will have to check the track width before anything & suss out your wheel widths to make sure that side of things doesn't rub or touch. The mounting parts i have no idea about as i've never had the privelidge of owning a torana
good luck

Hey,
Welcome to the site, sometimes you get better reply's if you create a user name jsut because to many people do stupid things under "A Holden Fan".
I think the Crewman idea sounds awesome, i have seen photos of a Eh sedan or wagon can't remember turned into ute so they keep the good tail lights.
As for the V8 make sure you know what you are getting your self in for whole new driveline, springs etc etc love to see the end project but

cya
