Chop top HJ van on Gumtree with interesting history

Howdy folks

surfing on the Tree and found this for sale

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/blackalls-park/wrecking/holden-hj-panelvan-chopped-custom/1110078727

That made me wonder what became of the chopped HQ? shark grill van that featured as a project build back in Street and Custom magazine days. From memory the editor Bruce Flynn bought it but then the magazine disappeared. So I googled shark holden van which led to this

The muralled van is also on gumtree

Does anyone know what became of the chopped shark van?

That is "ALIEN" and I once owned it. It is a HQ not a HJ.

Where did you spot it?

Edit: Sorry I see you have modified your earlier posts.
The "shark" is "ALIEN". Bruce never owned it although he tried.
