HR parts search

I've been searching for parts for my HR rebuild. Found this on Gumtree, been sitting in a Garage for 20 years waiting for me so I bought the whole car. Only engine and gearbox missing. A treasure trove for me! Got it for a third of what all the individual parts are worth. All usual rust spots done, subframe & crossmember in excellent condition.

CHROME PLATING PLASTIC PARTS

Hi all,
Has anyone had any experience or able to offer any advice about chrome plating plastic ?
The chrome has all peeled off of my 1977 Chev Caprice grill (think HJ Statesman) and I'm not sure what to do with it.
Any advice or info would be appreciated.

EJ Holden Pinion Angle

I suspect my pinion angle might be a bit out,get a lot of vibration and gear jump out only going uphill. Thinking of trying some wedges at the back. Where can you buy wedges suitable for old Holdens, are they pretty universal?

Supply and demand.

Suxuki Australia was only allocated 1,100 of the new Jimny for the first year of production.
Eight hundred were pre-sold before any landed in Australia. Which left 300 cars for all the Suzuki dealers in Australia to sell for 12 months.
The have a recommended drive away price of $23,990. Most places wanted $28,990.
I just saw this used one in Sydney for $35,990: https://classicthrot...
I believe that is what my economics meant when he talked about supply and demand.

Betty the FC

My darling has finally bought herself a car to show off in. Betty is an FC wagon and we'd like to find out when she was born. The mechanic can't find anything apart from the chassis number (so far). Also not sure which engine (grey?)
Chassis number is FC22923615A
Can you help?

HR Looking for parts then bought a body

Been looking for HR parts for my rebuild. So expensive and most ex East. Suddenly found a complete body with spares. Been in a garage for 20 years. A treasure trove for me! Rust free body and subframe. Picked it up on the weekend.

Ferris Push Button Radio

Does anyone have a photo of what the knobs on this Ferris look like? I've cleaned it up but don't know which ones are the right ones for it. Has the number 159 3875 stamped on it, does anyone know which year it was made?
