1976 Holden Kingswood HZ 253 V8 from Australia and New Zealand
Sold as a rock and sexy as!
The thermostat housing unit on the engine block is somewhat rusted and cannot be replaced, so I found some 'steel putty' and mended it so now it no longer leaks from the thermo housing.
I am still in the process of restoring and fixing it, and have had to replace brakes, tyres, hoses, radiator, coil, panels etc. Other than that, it sounds gnarly and angry, just the way I like it!
Built like a brick out-house. I am a female and just love working on the old-school cars myself, and the best way to learn is with the early cars, then you get to drive the beast with great pride too, fun!
I also have a Datsun 200b as well as UC Torana as my other projects, so I'm a busy girl.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
