The 138ci red was not the only unloved stepchild GMH made. They also made a 130ci red that was exported with the HQs. Probably a bit like Fosters... it all gets exported 'cause no-one will drink it here :lol: .

Cheers,
Harv

na not factory, the car had an opel 4 speed in it as well so my guess is it was a engine / trans out of a torrie into the Eh
was done long before I bought it, was an old cockys car he used so much sump oil to stop the rust there was at least a 3 inch thick layer of red dirt built up under the gaurds
