Not The Kingswood!!

G'day all. Another year has nearly gone now and unfortunately I've not had a chance to post any updates lately, largely due to becoming involved in another hobby, classic cars. Recently much time has been dedicated to getting a my old holden ute back on the road.
The distraction - 1977 Holden HZ Kingswood.

A bit of history found stuffed under the bench seat

Back to the workbench now though while I try and source some parts for the Kingswood.

Murringo has also now acquired it's first cars as well, a 1948 Holden 48-215 (FX) sedan and a 1957 Chevrolet Belair. The FX just needs some people in it, while the Belair will require a bit more work and will be the subject of a future post.

The staff at the workshops mean while have been on a vanning craze of a different sort on Murringo. Five bogie louvre vans have been undergoing work to join LLV 9958 and others on the waiting line for the paint bay. These include 2x AR Kits MLV vans, 1x Redfern Models semi louvred MLV, 1x IDR Castings fishbelly MLV and 1x AR Kits GLV which will become a second contract LLV. The second and third LLV contracts were recoded to GLV with strengthening of the underframe. First contract vans remained as LLV as their rivetted underframes did not allow for the strengthening done to the 2nd and 3rd contracts which had welded underframes.

And that's all for the moment.....
