1968 Holden HR ute Airforce car

So recently I've been given a 1968 Holden HR ute that belonged to my uncle and has been and his dads/ my grandfathers farm, I'm currently taking it up as a project car since I've fallen in love with it, after talking to my grandfather about the cars history mainly of his experiences driving it and the many pigs he use to transport in the tub he told me how the ute once belonged to the airforce and apparently used to transport the pilots around.

IFS for Holden HR

Thinking about bringing my HR into the 20th Century. I have been looking at all the different bolt in IFS front ends. They ain't cheap! Has anyone done this upgrade and who's unit did you use? The web sites just show pics & of course theirs is the best. Plus racks mounted front or back. Does anyone have any real experience to save me from the pitfalls. Cheers in advance.

W58 Supra box

Happy to say I am the proud owner of an almost complete W58 5 speed conversion for my HR. Rebuilt box, CRS bellhousing, clutch fork, two brand new clutches, cross member & tail shaft with the correct spigot. May need the tailshaft adjusted for the HR but a long way to getting everything together. I love Gumtree!

Still on the hunt for a HR Daily

Hi All,

I am still on the search for an Auto HR special / Prem which could be a good daily driver, ive viewed more than 15 cars now and they are either 'way too nice' (and therefore price reflective) or need way too much work.

I am located in Bundy, QLD but happy to look at mostly anything across Aust.

Any leads appreciated

Rust Converter

Used an aerosol rust converter on some raw steel rims after I stripped them back to paint.
They were nice and smooth and it seems the rust converter has gone blotchy. Has anyone had this problem before?
Might have to give them a light sand before I etch prime them.
TIA

Thinking about a W50 steel case 5 speed into my HR Sedan. What mods need to be done to the floor/tunnel? Anyone done the conversion before? It has a Trimatic in now & was previously a Powerglide.

VN Auto into HR Premier Sedan

Planning on putting a VN (Pre electronic) TH700 Auto into my HR Sedan. Was wondering about any problems with the Tunnel & Fire wall. I have done a bit of research and looked at the V6 Conversion web site. They say only slight modification. But that is with a V6 motor. Mounting may be slightly different. I want to stay with my 202. Anyone got any info?

HR 50th Anniversary rebuild

I have been planning this for more than 5 years. Took her off the road in 2012, been on Jack stands since then. Now its time to do it. I have owned my HR since I was 19, that was 1979. Rebuilt a couple of times over that time period. Never been happy with promised engine output. Now to do it properly. After several months of trying to find a std bore 202 I finally found one! Needless to say I now have 5 202/3.3 blocks of all colours......So now my engine build can begin. Planned JZED head, lots of internals, EFI Hardware injection, four wheel discs & 5 speed.

HR heater electric Tap

HR Holden Special with a fan forced heater has been disconnected. Took the heater out to pressure check and have the following questions.
The engine has a heater tap from head which connects to a cable under the bonnet and circulates the coolant when open etc.
There also seems to be another electronic tap like that in the picture.... what does this do? It's seems to be connected to a wire which goes into heater box??
Cheers
