Rusty's HJ 1 Tonner Project.

Post  Rusty62TransAm on Tue 03 Feb 2015, 12:20 pm

This is my Tonner not long after I bought it and started stripping it down.





It belonged to a Roof Tiler.  Had Sand in all sorts of strange places.

Cleaned up all the welds and Primed them for good measure until I get around to Sandblasting the Chassis.

Decided I wanted the Spare Wheel in the middle and Exhaust Pipes running up each side, so I made a new Piece and welded it in after cutting out the original one and cleaning up.











Used an old Engine Stand I had and made something to use at the Front.  Viola!  A Rotisserie.

Also decided I want to be able to drive long distances and be able to pull up at the Bowser and not worry about which side to Fill from, so I've fitted Brackets for a Fuel Tank on the Left-hand Side. There's already a Factory Hole on the Chassis Plate, perfect for a second Filler Neck to go through.

Fuel Tanks were sent off to have crossover and balancing fittings added.

If you look closely at this pic, you can see the second set of Mounting Brackets.

Decided to fold up and fit a new rear Bar without all the Superfluous Holes and Notches.

Plan is to fit LTD Taillights anyway.

Sadly, one of the problems (apart from the Ball & Chain crazyp ) in getting a Project Van is that I haven't found anything half decent where I don't have to take out a 2nd Mortgage and sell my Organs to put down a Deposit. sad1 Sad

Throw a Mattress on the back of a Tonner and you can make Love under the Stars. lol!

Kept the Front simple: HJ-Z Statesman.

Would Love to build a TransAm Tonner one day, with either a T-Roof or Gullwing Doors c/w T/A Interior and Massive Wheels on the Back. One day.

Bought a Long 308 for it and sent it off to the Engine reconditioners. Block was cracked, so bought a short.

Fully reconditioned, new rings, new bearing, new valves & seat Grind, Lumpy Bump Stick, Hi-Volume Oil Pump.

Painted it in 2-Pak Mint Julip and Sherwood Green (metallic) before I put all my Goodies on it.







Machined the Flywheel and fitted a new Clutch and Pressure Plate for the 4 Speed.

Bought a new Edelbrock Torker Square Bore Manifold for it and a 650 Double Pumper Holley.

Bought a new set of Pacemaker Headers for it and sent them off to be Aluminium Sprayed.

Painted the Gearbox and Bellhousing to match the 308.
