The engine bay is ugly, so no photos.

It has a 351 Windsor and an FMX 3spd with a 8.75 inch diff - nothing special mechanically, but loads of fun.  There is nothing like all-year-round convertible driving.  Heaters were invented to warm up an open top in winter.

Also, how did you get the photo of the Mopar engine? I get the whole wide aperture, narrow depth of field thing.  But the engine seems to be floating.

Always wanted a convertible. 
I do the same In the Vette when the tops are off in summer but with the A/C cranked

What year is it?


Re engine pic
You like that? The tricks of post production, i.e photoshop blur effect.  I dabble in photography, as a hobby only

If you have a ute, you have to use it.   1970 Ranchero Squire  1986 F100 351 Cleveland with C10, and I have had 1 Ton in the back, and it drives beautifully.

Lincoln Mk IV Continental Bucket Seats, Hideaway Grill, A/C, PS, and have '76 Thunderbird Aluminium rims for it plus a rim-blow steering wheel, Cruise, and a Tilt Column.

Imported it in 1989 from Texas to tow my Dragster, but ended up putting it to work after I converted it to RHD in 1990

Now that's a ute.  They don't make them like that anymore.

Did I hear the word dragster mentioned?  Pics and details?

First one was "Bitsa"   390 FE Ford

Second one, made up out of modifying the first one was "Orange Tango".   427 L88 BB Chev out to 440.   Never did get a good picture of that car when completed as I was always behind the wheel.   

Both home built.

Did you do the chassis ya self too?   Do you still race?   
Built the lot.   Bent the chassis rails, folded the panels, welded the chassis, built the engine, but didn't do the machining, but everything was done in Hobart.

Retired from racing in 1989, but was an ANDRA Steward and Technical Inspector for 26 Years, and officiated at the opening meeting at WSID.

Pictures to follow.
