21  General / General Board / More Number for Ken on: May 31, 2012, 07:10:28 PM
Today, I saw an FC Special Sedan.

Its numbers are:

Chassis  8-12166-s
Body  FC225-6142-s
Trim 272-633
Paint 256-2031
RPO  253-2047
Engine L140701  (might have been L149701, doubt it though because I remember two zeros in the number.)

First registered in NSW on 16 August 1958.

I've put the numbers into the decoder too.

Here's a spreadsheet that you can use to work out your engine capacity.

Engine Capacity Calculator (Excel)

Thanks to Ret for putting it within reach.

Any further progress?   Huh

Is Elvis taking up all the car time now?   Huh

Saw one on Harry Potter the other night.  Dunno how it'd take being sanded though...
25  General / General Board / Re: id on: May 08, 2011, 06:55:07 PM

It may be a replacement body.
26  For Sale and Wanted / Cars Wanted / Re: hi im new here on: May 07, 2011, 08:41:59 PM
It is white all over.  used to be Granite Grey and some other grey, similar to Ed Singleton's long running restoration.

Last NSW registration was 'WAS-138' circa 1993.

Rear wheel arches flared with a jack, front wheel arches flared by slightly increasing the original pressing.

I reckon it was flared to fit 13 x 8 wheels with 235/50 x 13 tyres.

Leon Julian can tell you a little about it too.

As you say, we'll let pajman1824 decide first.  FC427, you're second in line.

My place.

Fairfield NSW.

FC 'Wagon body.  Others in NSW know it as teh 'flared arches' wagon.

I got it for nix, you can have it for the same price.  I'll give you what I got given to me.

It is a shell with hanging panels, all glass, back seat, front buckets.  It has a HR rear end and comes with an FE front end.  All stainless steel trim comes with it.  original roof lining is still there.

Subframe is not attached to the car.  For the price, you get the cut up subframe original to the car and an FE subframe that needs rust repairs.

I picked this car up off another member some five or so years ago to stop it being scrapped and for a long term project.  Realistically, I don't have the time for it.

A person might be able to use this with an Aussie 4 speed, using a separate lever for reverse...

I see that you're still holding true to Nev... Very 138.   Cheesy
32  General / General Board / Re: 2011 on: January 11, 2011, 12:18:47 PM

Yes, farewell 2010.   Grin
33  For Sale and Wanted / Cars For Sale / Re: 1959 FC Special on: October 10, 2010, 11:27:18 PM
I had a look at this car just before Mike put it up for sale, and I had a drive of it.

The car is in very good condition, I reckon that it is well worth what is being asked for it.

It drives so smoothly too.  I drove it from a cold start up, after a short period of time to warm up.  The engine pulls very well, no hesitation.  The clutch works beautifully as do the brakes.  Gear selection is a breeze and it holds itself in gear too.

I'd have to say that it is a well sorted out, very original car.

35  General / General Board / Re: Shifter Linkage Bushes on: October 05, 2010, 12:08:53 AM

Go out in the mulga.  Plenty of 'new' bushes there.   Cheesy

You absolute @#$&^s

That web page for Pearlcraft is way cool.  I keep on replaying that opening page simply because it sounds & looks so good.



Well done on being 'chosen' for the cover and two of the content cars.
37  For Sale and Wanted / Cars For Sale / Re: 1959 FC Holden Special Sedan. on: September 04, 2010, 04:02:11 PM

That's good buying.

Julia Gillard sent over.

What's this restriction on postings less than 30 seconds apart business?

Not good for Maryanne.  My mother was diagnosed with it, when it was in its early stages.  She's still with us 35 years later.  Maryanne'll pull through, she'll need a fair bit lot of support.

This picture is taken approaching Victor Harbor.
