1  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Re: My new fc ute on: September 13, 2018, 09:05:29 PM
I ran the chassis number and body number through my database and the ute comes out as early 59. Rob is right on the money. The gearbox is most likely original and the engine is wrong. A number more like L560000 would be right for your ute.

Yeah I have one here, can get a pic if you want to see it. It is from an original filter, not a later commercial fitting.
Asking $15 for it plus postage

The grille had rechromed and NOS parts fitted, the frame was powder coated and the bolts were all CAD plated.
All gaps were perfect and was better than new condition.

Quite right Dr Terry, no factory fitted Windows. Dealerships fitted them as well as commercial body builders.

Well it's over for another year and what a fantastic night it was. Some really rare stuff sold at good prices and plenty of fun as well

So the highest number in my database is 10320. All van bodies are made in Adelaide as Richard states.
So my database gives your van a date of approx May 1959
Chassis number would date it more accurately

I should add, I made them myself when I was working at Hoppers Stoppers. We had a brake line machine which was handy Grin
From memory, standard fitting from the pipe on the chassis, about 450 mm long and with a banjo fitting on the caliper with a through bolt.
Don't have any photos unfortunately, that was on my since sold FE sedan.
The engineer loved them because they gave excellent clearance on full travel

I had them custom made. Go round behind the tower and attach with a right angle fitting.
All brake shops should be able to make them for you.

15  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Diff Ratio on: August 05, 2018, 12:22:19 PM
I agree, 3.55 would be the best in my opinion
