I dont know the legalities of it, but what is the main reason behind it?
Are you planing on running mq drive line ie 5 speed and 3.3ltr diesel as it might be easier rego wise to put them on the 60's chassies.but puting it on a gq i can understand the reason,coils 4.2 diesel on a troopy type body sounds good.

Miller any updates.

Been tempted to get a G60 for a while.

Just gotta talk my brother into cutting the rust out. Being a panel beater he hates working on cars on the weekend.

not sure in your state but here in sa because they didnt start recording chassis numbers till about 1985 i in formed transport sa of a chassis swapp and they didnt do anything as i said not sure about other states but would be easy to find out from the transport board
adding twin bonnet scoops and a bigger turbo !!
