Easiest way to tell them apart is by the shape of the transmission pan.

[http://www.ebay.com....|TURBO 400 PAN]

[http://www.ebay.com....|FACTORY TURBO 400 PAN]

[http://www.ebay.com....|TURBO 350 PAN]

[http://www.ebay.com....|TRIMATIC]

The ads above will give you the shape your looking out for. The main thing to look at is the shape of the gasket face, but the pans are all different enough to be able to tell just by looking under the car.

By the way, I don't think the HZ's came out with a turbo 400, so unless it's been modified, it should be a turbo 350, or if it's a late HZ, maybe a trimatic.

I would say the seller doesn't know and just listed as turbo 400.

Looks like a good buy, if it was near Brissy, I'd be trying to get over to see it real quick :)

easiest way is to check its a T400 is to look at the shape of the oil pan.

if you google pics of 't400 oil pan' im sure you will see

Wanted information from any one that has any information that has worked in a place that built ambulance's of any type in particular holden hq to wb's and any ambulance builder's paper work or manuals thanks authorised collector of emergency electrical's

IT says it is a 1977 so my observations from what i can see in photo's(from experience with Holden's)it has a 1977 steering column in it (HQ stile ignition look), HX sports dash. with EBAY after market facer HJ/HX sports wheel,After market mag wheels, trim looks good, len's cover gone WB mirror's Other wise it looks as it did when it left the factory.

Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy car parts, and that makes me happy :)

too late she cried! its been removed from my watchlist so i assume its been sold. had a few days to get down there so probably shouldnt have waited until saturday. not to worry, did look good though. take your point pugsly another possibility is someone getting screwed on a trade in or the car dealer going on the redbook value!

maybe not too late, rang the guy who is an unhappy dealer sold it to someone interstate who still hasnt put the money in his account as promised reckons if its not there by 2moro hes gonna relist it, says he could have sold it half a dozen times already by now. asked for a call if the sale falls through but what are the odds of the asking price creeping up on the back of all the interest!?

thanks for the above posts

I wouldn't wait for him to call, get straight onto him in the morning and if he tries to put the price up, then tell him your walking.

Drive to his yard, be waiting there in the morning and put some money down on it. Worst case, the other money comes through and you get yours back. Best case, you pick up that car for a bargain.

NOTE: Definitely check it over before you put said cash down.
