HOLDEN HR UTE BARN FIND SWAN HILLUnfinished restoration. bought this with view to getting it back on the road among my Holden collection. Have spent few $$$ and many hours on it...but now have to sell it because of space in my shed and the additional time and $$$ required to complete it.I recommend you VIEW THE CAR or ask me questions prior to bidding.She is great old original country car from Swan Hill west of NSW.It is now located at my factory in Sydney (Sutherland shire).It HAS RUSTED UNDER THE TRAY BODY AND MAIN FRAME...SO IT NEEDS ALOT OF WELDING AND METAL REPLACEMENT to ensure it can be roadworthy.....or it would make great spare parts as the body, engine and interior are in good condition.I have plenty more photos and video of the engine running smoothly...NO SMOKE, Quite and purs lovely...only 52354miles on the speedo...and believe these are ORIGINAL...the engine starts and sounds very good...even with half an original exhaust.WORK COMPLETED:ENGINE: New rocker side gaskets, new oil and filter NEW spark plugs New leads new fan belt New water pump new thermostat housing Replaced the petrol tank Flushed radiator and replaced hoses.Mechanic is going to change broken brake cylinder reservoir with some of the spares that come with the ute...so hope to have at least brake pedal by end of auction.....There is no hand brake cable..it will need replacing. Gearbox and clutch working OK. (Petrol currently diverted from petrol can for engine running). NO battery included.Brakes will most likely need overhaul after sitting for many years..currently no brakes working.BODY: Had the small rust attended too...tried to keep the original patina as the ute is typical farm basher and has real character with many dents, scratches, surface rust and faded paint. Replaced the lower front stone guard panel, replaced the rear tyre spare door with GOOD ONE and new rubber seal...but NO KEY/LOCK in it. Replaced the tail lights with VERY GOOD ONES. Not sure if the blinkers, lights etc are working..... but all the original wiring is still there and original LUCAS HEADLIGHTS. Grill is good and just needs new badge. REAR TRAY Had some panels welded in behind the cabin...but it is under the actual tray and chassis where the rust is..and the tray has separated from the chassis (refer photos)INTERIOR: Original roof lining and sunvisors, original PARCEL SHELF, Replaced the old RED bench seat with VERY GOOD GREEN BENCH SEAT...just has one split seam in it. Original Red door trims are OK...there is tear in the drivers door trim about 7cm. The floors were painted with RUST GUARD....then lined with WATER PROOF FOAM under the NEW RUBBER FLOOR MATT. Seat will need to be bolted in...and there are some spare Holden seat belts among the spares that also need to be fitted.The ute could be stripped and used as spares...or you could spend the extra $$$ and get the chassis under body rust done to bring here back to former glory.Has half the original exhaust..most likely needs complete new one.Please txt or email if you want more photos...or video of the engine running. can assist with interstate transport pick up.No reserve auction Priced well below what it owes me! It is not show car and would not be the base for the start of show car...she is an original old work horse from the bush with sound motor!Deposit within 24hrs of sale...balance within days or the car will be relisted.JEFF 0414 440 420Advertised elsewhere so may be removed.
