Think she got a bit hot , was working real hard in the soft stuff right at the beginning [ about 3 ton loaded ] . Nice conversion though ..
 Pity the bloke who tried to recover him went like a bull at a gate and  pulled the recovery hook off the chev / damage to  both of them .

Always liked the Utes and tonner 4x4 conversions .. Range rover front and rear diffs  and Nissan 720 remote transfer cases were a common adaption to the ones built around here . :cheers:

Remember seeing one like this, but in red, when I was a kid. Was in a small outback town somewhere on our trip across the country.

Hey Edz, the corty hatchback is a complete car and lives in the western suburbs of Brisbane.

Willy Porker did a small bit on it in Street Machine Mag.

Pretty certain I know the guy who used to own this. Not sure if he is the one who built/had it built. However it was a super clean job. I know a loooooot of money went into that car.
Ill see if I can find some more photos of it.
