That is an extraordinary pickup, good work! I had an FB sedan years ago, spent a fortune on it, new paint, the works... and let it go for next to nothing when I needed the money. Biggest mistake I ever made - I want it back. Made in 1960 and so sweet to drive. Who needs the latest.

I see it has an LJ stromberg twin set up on it, nice!. I remember when we use to pick these up for $50.00 when I was a 1st year mechanic, my first car was a $50.00 EH holden!
