UC

Hi All

I’ve been in hibernation for a while, so happy new year to all. Took my uc for a cruise through the Grampians here in sw Vic, the car ran like a dream. Still pinching myself. It really pays to do it once do it properly! I’ve kept is as it came out of the show room, it’s now done a wopping 60.500km since new. In the last 12 months I’ve only done 1500km in it, not good! I got side tracked with a new fun addiction building modified Aussie mowers. Been a blast. Anyhow cheers.

My UC

Since I finished the resto I have loved every second driving it, runs so smooth. Its proof that if you dedicate yourself to a project and don't rush it will get finished. My advice is don't keep or look at the receipts after buying parts, and don't add up what it cost and ignore the fact that you spent 500 hours restoring it . That's my secret to completing a project.

finally finished all the repairs on the body the next is to block it down and start painting colour. So far its been 5 years doing a bit here and there, all the mechanicals done new rubbers carpet, infact everything I could buy new or new old stock I have replaced. but now can see light at the end of the driveway, hoping it will be finished and on the road in April 2017. enjoyed every second of the refurbishment.

Sad sale - UC Torana - as is (insurance write-off)

Feel free to check out my ad on Gumtree. Very sad sale, and in fact the damage is pretty much confined to the right front quarter (not taking into account the general condition of the vehicle), but I don't have the money or energy to tackle any repairs.

I've spent a fair amount on her already, but thankfully hadn't on the bodywork. Happy to answer any questions not answered in the ad.

Vehicle currently in Goulburn, NSW (at least for a couple of weeks).

aussie 4 speed worn shifter

These 2 gear sticks were in a box of shifter parts that came with an aussie 4 speed I bought on ebay a few months ago.

Sure glad I wasn't using the 1 on the left.

Unfortunately the good shifter is the bendy type for a bench seat.

Have people had success cutting and welding shifters.
