    let me guess indonsesia.

    that does look tough, lower it a bit more, flare the guards & you will be able to pick up that 15 year old mother of 3 at macca's.

    You're right, they are!

    Front would be fairly easy, I'd reckon. Swap some bearings, maybe machine some hubs and fit Falcon or Holden stuff straight on. The rear wouldn't be all that hard to match up.

    Do you know if this is legal Ray? Anyone?

    and secondly could that mean the option of using large Holden vented disc brakes etc....

    Not that I have the time or the money to even consider this now but just maybe

    That's a Series II car Bowie. It has the SII side mirrors and front/rear bumpers.


    The 505 'Executive' bar is that of the SI european 505 Turbo Injection.

    A fella down here in Melbourne has converted his 505 to Commodore stud pattern. Not sure how... not sure if it's legal either.
