Had a Long Journey back on Saturday, drove around 7 hours and then had rest and sleep overnight. Living in a city and being originally from the country you do forget about the peace and quiet and the nature in the mornings. Details
1989 G-Limited - Based on Vin
Based on looking at this it has had a Gen3 NA swap, no history on what happened and why this occurred but that doesn't really matter moving forward.
This also seems to have leather seats? (Was this an option back in the day or maybe something retro fitted?)
Needs alot of wiring work and interior to be put back together, depending on what I end up finding about the compliance as this appears to only have a AUS Vin Riveted rather than a complete Import approval Plate? Reading up on this as this might be one of the ones that was imported before the 15 Year old rule was changed and pushed back into 1988 instead.
Still need to unpack some of the spares that also came back down.
1990 GT - Vin Confirmed
Have been told that this one has had a replacement engine with a motor that was imported from Hong Kong and was one that originally was in a US model? (Any Simple ways to confirm this?)
Has cloth seats and bits of the interior need to be put back together, but alot of spares were also supplied so this should be much of an issue. Has a Bomex? Front kit which i'm not a huge fan off but I have a OEM front Bumper with lip so will replace anyway and the car needs a respray to make everything all hunky dory.
Motor itself on the drive home ran very cool and also looks stock, other than a painted Valve cover.
I have also been given the original motor that was in the car and was told he was overheated but will prob hold onto this for spares. (Might even build and forge one day)
Pile of parts - Spend most of today cleaning and putting everything away to assess what I have.
Even have a couple of heads?
Have a couple of Stock Fuel rails with injectors. (Doing a google I cant seem to find a thread that shows me what each Generation rail looks like? Can someone point out a simple way to see by looking at them?) Current Plans
- Get the GT Roadworthy and join the Vic Club to participate in events. (Anyone have a stock exhaust I can borrow/buy?)
- Find out the deal with the G-Limited and assess what can be done to either have that road-registered otherwise will maybe need to continue with the Track car idea the previous owner originally had.
Feel free to pass on any info you have would be appreciated to learn as much as I can!
