308 and 253 trimatics

Hi guys i have a 308 and a 253 trimatic with gearboxes, just wondering what they might be worth. Not sure if there running or not.

Also would it be worth getting them re drilled to fit a turbo patten. if so what sort of cost would i be looking at and where would be a good place to take them in Melbourne South east suburbs or along mornington peninsula to have it done. So from Dandnong to Frankston.

Thanks again

Stroker

Hi guys i have just been given a two 308 with gearboxes that have been sitting for a long time. I know one come out of a HQ 1tonner the other not sure on also not sure if there are running or not either.

Thinking of pulling them down cleaning them up and maybe get a stoker kit to put in at least one of them.

Is there much demand for this sort of setup or are people going for a small block chevs or a VN to VT 304 style with a stroker kits now days.

Have nothing to put it in. Would mainly be a talking point in the man cave or something like that.

And what else do I need as far as tailshaft clutch and speedo

G'day guys long time no see!

Hi guys for any that remember me my names chris, I sold my beloved injected hg almost 10 years ago. Time has flown by, always regretted it and always missed it. I've got a young family now and am looking for a new project. Moneys tight, but I'm a relatively skilled builder. Thinking about a lj torana coupe, or maybe a hq sedan. Dunno, waiting for a good basket case to rear its head for me to get stuck into. I'll find something one day, hopefully sooner than later.

Make a WB ute into HZ ute

I was wondering if it is at all possible to convert a WB ute into HZ ute. I know the front guards are different along with the bonnet. But are the front frames that are bolted to the cab the same for both models ?

Thanks in advance for clarification.
