Hq — it hasnt been touched since 1979,the pistons are standard.it had a 5 speed supra put in not very well.245s on the back 225s on the front,so far ive replaced the timing cover gasket water pump,master cylinder and booster,indicator switch.the paint job was sprayed over GT green,and the acrylic gunmetal grey didnt take to the enamel clear coat.it has the commercial grille at the moment but i have recently bought the twin light and twin grille front end.

Pros: HQ V8

Cons: poorly maintained till now
