This is amazing you have amazing skills. May I ask what model you started out with? The frame is all scratch built correct? Again absolutely amazing work. I always liked the Aussie utes and the 70's aussie falcons I wish they caught on here in the USA
Can't wait to see more mate

It is a treat to see a "Kool Old Truck" like that....Rare here in Iowa.....I dig the "Rugged Look" Your build'n with. The "High Rise Manifold" is a "Bobby Dazler"....I hope I used that expression correctly.....It might be a dated term....I am "Kinda Old"
