This is my LJ torana 4 door. 202 red top motor 60 th... Show moreou fully reconditioned with a 5 speed supra gearbox. i bought it when i was 14 for $1500 and dad and i have been building it for 7 - 9 months now. Spent just over $850 on chrome work. Just about finished. When it is road worthy the first thing i would like to do is put on tripple su's and try get it in street machine mag. The only reason i didnt chuck in a 350chev v8 was because i ran out of money. Will do it sometime down the track. Here are some pics. Tell me what you think.
First thing - Changed from 3 spd auto to 5 speed manual. Also converted mechanical clutch to hydrolic clutch.
Hired engine jack - $60 for the weekend to pull out the engine to get reconditioned.
