SOUND GEN­ERAL QUAR­TERS: 4-DOOR GTS, PLUS PACK SS AND AN FJ POSTIE VAN

Unique Cars - - CONTENTS - Paul Kriv­itch

Ibought this in 1989 when it was only 18 months old. Chris Mue­len­graaf of SES Crane Hire orig­i­nally owned it, op­tion­ing it up with a sun­roof, but he de­cided to up­grade to the Walkin­shaw, so that’s where I stepped in. It’s never been a daily; I’ve done about 99,000km in it since 1989. It runs the orig­i­nal T5 man­ual and 304-cube V8; and it’s a Plus Pack, so it’s got the En­ergy Po­lariser.

I’ve not had to touch it, although I did up­grade the brakes just the other day. I put on a set of slot­ted, cross-drilled ro­tors as I want to do the Clas­sic Ade­laide Prima Tour next year. I’ve kept all the orig­i­nal bits, but it was al­ways gonna need bet­ter brakes!
