  • Ashes to ashes, rust to rust - ‘77 Kingswood Panel Van

    This absolute pile may not look like much, but I have wanted to build one of these for over 10 years so to me she’s perfect.

    1977 HJ Holden Kingswood Panel Van, 2.8l in-line 6, 3 on the tree manual and a metric shitload of rust. It’s also missing a steering wheel, all the gauges, tailgate handles, mirrors and a good chunk of the engine components.
    Fortunately the bloke did throw in a spare nosecone in great condition and I have a mate with a ‘76 Kinga Ute and an uncle with a HQ Sandman who have a bunch of spares lying around.

    The plan is to get the rust sorted, paint it a ridiculous shade of orange, throw an LS1 in and go cruising

    That sounds like a very exciting project!

    I don't envy you all the rust repairs you need to get stuck in to....
