This is a great little Mark 5. It's about to become even greater. It's not really mine, it's Colin McAskill's. He bought it in Bairnsdale as the stickers say but it can live here for as long as Colin likes. Meanwhile it's up for a rub down and a few coats of Sebring Orange, some period mags, a rewire and lots of other refurbishments, all in time for Easter next year. Here it is about to come out of the trailer. This trailer has just been built (also in Kapunda) to house the SR6. Anyway, the front spoiler has already been removed so at least you can open the bonnet. As it is going to be a road car, it's doubtful if it will ever go back on.
And here it is being pushed into the yard. I get to steer. I get all the easy jobs. Yes that is a WW2 Willys Jeep in the background (being tidied up for the Bay to Birdwood the following Sunday). The Mark 5 has now been fitted with a brand new starter motor so at last we could start it up and it sounds great. It has a Commodore rear end, hence the flares that were on it, but unlike the front spoiler, they will go back, but will be moulded into bodywork. I will keep posting photographs from time to time as progress is made.
