Well, it seemed adequate to me. :y
When did you last drive it? The Monaro front end was fitted after that Brackley meet ;)

Much improved over the Omega subframe  :y

I keep finding myself browsing the sales sites looking at Holden V8s. Generally the V8s are top money or  slammed or sheds (or all 3 in some cases)

This one looks unmolested https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/holden/commodore/listing/3121880971 for about 6,000

The V8 Adventra is a bit of a beast if you can find one for sensible money 8)

Nice :y

You can get them with the 3.6 or the V8, but I believe that the V8 had a 4x4 option.

Essentially it's the Commodore Wagon on 4x4 Ute running gear.

Scratches chin as to what a blown 4x4 Monaro would be like... 🤔

There's about 25k of parts and time in doing the conversion.

So the only question is do you actually want one or do you merely like the idea?

Both!!

But I need 25k first, and then if I had that I would have my current miggy completely overhauled with engine and bodywork fully restored to as new condition...................but I am dreaming of course!!! ;D ;D ;D ;)

It's at just over ten grand atm, could be a rush of bids towards the end of the auction. (Then, because it's eBay, the horse trading will start)
