My old Favourite....HG Ute

Post  agro on Wed 11 Sep 2013, 9:48 pm

My Grandparents bought it new in September 1971  Glacier white 3 on the tree 173.
I purchased it in November 1986 with 49000mls on the clock.
Pulled the worked 308 out of my HJ in 1994 and put into the ute with a Turbo 700.
Added A/C & P/Steer although P/S was average.
Changed colour from Glacier White to Dodge Viper Blue in 2001 where it attended Summernats (just as a cruiser)
Sold in 2004 to a bloke in Sydney who said i'd get first offer to get it back.
2005 Finances were better and when i went to buy it, he'd already sold it.
After years of chasing for it and hearing reports of "wrecked", "written off" & found at wreckers, also numerous posts on forums looking for it, a reply came on Fastlane last Saturday.
I now know of it's whereabouts and i'm waiting for more pics.Hoping the owner will talk to me and he's interested in selling it back to it's original family.

I hope you can grab her to Agro, I never knew the grandparents link to it. Even nicer to have it return. Cool
