Purchased From:
I found the coupe when i visited a guy who had a sedan for sale, i asked about the coupe and he said it wasn’t for sale a few months later i was told it was for sale so i quickly rang and the rest is history took 25 yrs on and off but with help from some great friends it’s been on the road for the past 5yrs the coupes been featured in magazines in australia as well as NZ and has featured on the cover of the filling station catalog twice as well as winning a couple of trophies not bad for a rod thats Driven not Hidden!!!!
Modifications:
Filled roof ,filled grilleshell top, 1/4vent windows removed ,dicky seat converted to boot ,rear fuel tank cover customised in fglass Wheels Type & Size.group3 e/t gasser 14x7-14x8 .kuhmo tyres with spinners, when the coupe was first regd it ran a tunnelram setup but after a while I changed to a single 600 so it drives nicer,also had to sort out some diff angle issues
Future Plans : to fit a 1 piece bonnet top for summer cruising ,tidy up some stone chips and cracks and detail the motor some more
What do you enjoy most about your Car: i love the way it looks and how nice it is to drive it still brings a smile to my face even after all these years Here's some pics.

Hi John,

Great looking Coupe!!

You always see the finished project a beautiful car, but it's the time, blood, sweat & tears no one see - amazing work.

thanks guys for the kind words, was honoured to be asked to feature the coupe here, eventually found some of the build pics as much of the detail work gets hidden when finished am now just finishing off some detail stuff that I put off over summer. Looking forward to catching up with everyone at a cruise or show .

cheers john cheers
