Hello From Perth, Australia

Post by NISZILA »

Hi Guys,
Just got registered on the forum. I've been around the import scene for more than 10 years now, but I've always wanted to restore a classic! I decided on a TA22 quite some time ago and for the last 6-7 months I've been hunting for one. Recently, I found exactly what I was looking for. It's a 1973 TA22 LT1600 that is currently unregistered but 100% complete and running (even if it is a little rough). She obviously needs a lot of TLC, but that was exactly what I wanted. I have been reading build threads everywhere and doing a lot of research even before I made the purchase, so I've already got a pretty solid plan of the end goal. In a nutshell, the final product will have a 3SGE Beams with the J160 6 speed. The only thing I still can't decide is the colour :confused:

This is the beast on the way to her new home.

And this is the beginning of the tear down

It is going to take me a good couple of years, especially since I have to finish some house renovations as well, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the process.
