Trailer supply place. It's just a round 185 mm wide guard for a 10" wheel. Clears a 15" tyre.

If you want those lights you had better break out the grinder and welder.

Hell no , not mine. You'd need a tetanus shot if you got closer than 10 feet to that one.

It's a '62 Holden (GM). We got the first local produced one in '48.


This is a '48 with a top chop.

Ute

I thought it was a Holden, the front end looks like a 55 or 56 Chevy, I think they may have sent the dies to Holden after they were done with production in the US. (I worked for GM for 30 years but don't know Holden's history very well.) That would be a pretty unique classic car over here no matter what condition its in.

Until '66 they were styled in Detroit.

Local Ford utes of that era were based on the American Falcon with some sheetmetal changes.

Chrysler gave us a Valiant ute in '64.

Put the winch on. Trust me you will need it when you get bogged. K's are bloody heavy and a pain in the arse to get unbogged (ask the lads who helped me get unstuck on the way to Lorella Springs). Plus I'm a big believer in if you have it you won't need it. Since I've put mine on I have not needed to use it (touch wood). It's also a good conversation starter.

Are the cans a new form of crushable suspension

Posted the wrong pic' , you weren't supposed to see the All New Improved ' things go better with coke' suspension.



Trust me , I've bogged K's in the weirdest/dumbest of places.

This is a parking bay in central Qld. Spot those wheel tracks ? ... Nissan patrol had twin diff locks.

Blacksoil. Bike is bogged not 35 feet from the bitumen.





When he got out he winched me from the bitumen New winch is 3500 lb and runs 50' of wire. With any luck I should be able to negotiate shopping center car parks now

A little bit of the history found with this car.
http://smh.drive.com.au/discovery-of...521-1ey2x.html
I believe it was a Canadian pre war design but correct if wrong here.
But for this car to be built in 46 suggests so.

Makes sense. If the FX was released in '48 then the prototypes would be even earlier than that.



Alex , the suspension was a fizzer. I've had to come up with a new idea.






Was deciding whether to mount the winch on a hitch. Went with a solid front mount and will run the cable to the rear if needed via two sheaves/guides. Wire has a straight clear run to the back.
