1  For Sale and Wanted / Cars For Sale / Re: Black 1957 FE special on: Yesterday at 09:20:37 PM
Pinky, 225 (special sedan) has chrome on the door trims, 215 (standard sedan) does not.
Both 215 & 225 that were painted black, had silver dash options. Not all had the silver dash, but a significant number did.

Graham, remove the rear brake hose and see if you can blow through it. THe symptoms suggest to me a brake hose which is practically blocked but not quite.

Surprisingly not that rare. I've had three over the years.




If it has tailgates it unlikely to be an ambulance because they had doors on the back

Jim, your not the first one to be tricked by that one. The FE FC shocks were superseded in FB because they were very likely to get bent when driving over rough terrain.  Many FE FC's that I have owned or worked on over the years had the FB onwards "conversion" made to install the later shocks.
All you need is the little plate on the bottom of the original FEFC wishbones to convert back to the original shockers.

I think if I bent it a little it would fit in a flatter box. I'll pack it and get a postage estimate. What's your postcode

I have a complete one here with the brass fitting in Hoppers Crossing Victoria. Depends where you are because it would be prohibitive to post. $25 pick up

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.

Can't really list the whole results, but I'm happy to tell you what items you were interested in went for

Regards. Ken
14  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: What year? on: August 24, 2018, 04:53:15 PM
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

Ken
16  Technical Board / General Technical / Re: What year? on: August 20, 2018, 07:46:54 PM
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

Just a reminder, any absentee bids need to be given to me tomorrow

18  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Commodore caliper hoses on: August 10, 2018, 05:56:39 PM
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

19  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Commodore caliper hoses on: August 09, 2018, 07:22:57 PM
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.
