FJ Utility

a few modifications turned into a lot more than I thought

We bought the car down Rosebud way in 1997 as an everyday driver for work.

After a few years I took her off the road for a few modifications which turned into a lot more than I thought.

She runs a 179 red motor with a mild cam, twin carbs, 3-speed auto, HR front end and Commodore steering. The colour is Passion Rose, so naturally she is called Rosie. After a few mishaps the body has been roughly repaired. She is due for a complete respray when time and money permits. Until then we will continue to enjoy driving her.
