EH Ute on Ebay, Buyer Beware

There is a EH ute on Ebay for 10k in QLD.
......BUYER BEWARE......

This ute is BENT!, I know I bent it!
I built it, I bent it, and I fixed it. 15 years ago.

The ute left the road at 120, and took the main impact on the top door hinge on the LH A pillar. This impact pushed the pillar IN, BACK and DOWN.
We attempted to rectify this with a sledge hammer and a Porta-Power. First we cut the door out of the opening and attempted to offer up another, no chance!
We beat the car and stretched it 3 ways until a door fit the opening.
The kinks in the LH B pillar at the base of the turret have been wiped over.
The kinks in the glove box opening are still there.
This can be seen in the picture where the interior view from the driver side across to the passenger side. Notice the dash pads and how badly they dont line up.
The LH rear quarter panel has a kink before the wheel arch. Here the panel bulges out. This is due to the leading edge of the panel was smeared flat by the tree, we pushed, dollied, levered and shrunk as much as we could and then filled it with plastic.
The LH guard and door are junk and full of plastic. These are still on the car.
The entire EJ Wagon floor has not held up well either.

This car was sold for a reason, and sold unreg and with the damage declared.
A quick coat of white paint has not fixed it!
I would hate to have someone else find this out the hard way!

I just thought it was too much to represent this ute as good with a bit of rust.

Listing has been taken down by the owner.
It can still be found if you know where to look.
Click on the word "Avanced" that is beside the blue box that says Search.
Enter Holden EH ute in the Item keyword box.
Go down past the blue search box and click on Completed Listings.
Then click Search.
When the listing comes up, click on the small blue type that says See Original Listing.
Easy as.
Doing that can also tell you what things actually sell for (in green)

White with hotwires.
Listing reads: 179HP with M20.
Yet, its a Toyota stick in the pictures with a 5 speed knob.
Its actually a Toyota box out of an RT104 Corona.

When you see the listing for the ute, click on the title of the listing - Holden EH ute - and then a smaller picture of the listing will pop up, then you can click on See Original Listing.
Sorry, my instructions were a bit like the secret recipie grandma will give you - they had one important ingredient left out.

Once upon a time....

It was Barwon Blue, 7" Chrome rims with Go-Domes and acorn nuts, and FULL (right down to the brakes) CHROME Plated under carriage. (I still own the Diff and rear sway bar set up, and had it hanging outside above the shed door.)

Rear blind, '91 Corolla bucket seats(head rests removed), picnic radio, clock etc(still own both of these) and a premier wheel with a light coat of blue pearl.

Lift the bonnet and it looked stock. But the Bryant Engineering 186, toyota 4 speed combo worked a treat!

The Chrome bonnet hinges are still on the ute, as is some of the front end chrome.

It was a work horse all its life, and had an EXTREAMLY colourful life.
It was a big part of my life and I will always recognise it, no matter what colour it is.

It was only ever repaired because I wanted to run its rego out, as it was my only car and hoped to find another body. Sadly, in a moment of weakness sold it on as good running gear neading a new body.

........BUYER BEWARE.....

It NEEDS a new body.

trouble is, it was that long ago I dont have any in the computer. I will have to find them and scan.
Which leads me to my next question, how do I upload them here?

You have to start a new thread. You can't add pics here, unless you build a shed and put a link to the pics. It sounds confusing, but once you get the hang, you'll sail through it. But for now, if you want, I'd be happy to put the pics up for you, but you'll need to e-mail them to me here:

hrambo@oldholden.com

No hurry, I'm sure others would be interested in seeing the ute.
