    It's do as I say, not as I do Very hypocritical

    Air filter size Aussie speed

    I had a similar issue with air cleaner clearance on a slant 6 Valiant. One of the things I did to gain a bit of clearance was to shorten the passenger side engine mount bracket by 3/4", which gained more than an inch at the carburettor, I also raised the back of the bonnet about 3/4".

    I agree, they are a bit odd looking. That said, I would also like to have one.

    Bring it in minus engine, gearbox, and brakes? Or with those bits in the back, but disassembled and clean?

    That seems like good value, add about $3K to get it here.

    Yeah, I think repairing a rusty import is going to be cheaper/easier/better than trying to build one from a sedan/coupe/van.

    I think a van would be easier, no, just less difficult. It"s not going to be easy.

    Classic trim in the UK have a really nice one, a bit pricey though.
