This is a 1968 Holden Belmont HK panel van, another cool Australian ride. The body is a fiberglass resin piece from Jaymar Model Parts (which is no longer in business). It rides on a slightly modified AMT 66 Nova chassis and Pegasus "Hela" wheels. HOK Limetime pearl paint. Something a bit different for that Sunday cruise...........

Tanks, Artist-Dude! :wink:
Actually, no........this one ain't that one. I've had about 6 or 8 Jaymar bodies for awhile. Stuff that I got in a trade with Jeff years ago. This was part of that stash. I still have a couple more Monaros, an EH Holden wagon, Phase III Falcon GT, etc. It's just that they require SO much work! But what am I saying - you're familiar with what these things look like to begin with! :twisted:

Dave,
Yes, the huge amount of work required to make it presentable kept it unbuilt for quite a few years before selling it. I still have a fiberglass '48 Ford Ute that I keep looking at but cannot seem to find the courage to start on.
You did a nice job with a very difficult and rough piece!
Thank you for submitting it....
:P
