FULLY REBUILT 351 Cleveland. EVERYTHING is new. Pistons, rings, crank ground, Dipped, decked etc. Welsh plugs, water pump, thermostat, Felpro gaskets, lifters, rockers etc etc. Mild crow Cam. (have all the specs and paperwork) Only fitted 1/06/2019. I have done about 200Km on it.
Fully recoed 351 open chamber heads. Includes new springs, collets etc. Hardened valves and seats. Fresh paint. New timing chain, New electronic Billet distributor and MSD leads. Weiand Inlet manifold soda blasted and painted. New starter motor. Over $6000 spent on this.

Selling to fund another ongoing project. Not desperate. Not interested in stupid offers- you may be offended by my response if you want to low ball. Yes I appreciate there are cheaper ones out there. If you want to pay 5 or 6K less for a rusty, tired engine one, please feel free to do so.
This would have to be the most rust free example I have ever owned! Bring your magnets, bring your old skool panel beater mates, I dont care. You will struggle to find a better bodied sedan. The lack of rust makes this a very good long term daily driver.
Paint job is not 100% perfect but it is a very presentable daily driver.
Excellent GS Bonnet.
GXL Dash, front lights and grill.
Original working superfringe radio.
W.A Licenced till September 2019
Borg warner Disc brake LSD
Drives, Stops and steers well. Non power steer.
Build plate says: Feb of 1978 Broadmeadows built car. Factory 3 speed cruiseomatic column shift. Factory 4v 302.
Factory integrated air conditioned car.
Factory power steer (Last owner didnt like it, so removed it )

Lots of NEW parts including the following:
Master cylinder, reconditioned booster, new rotors all round. (4 wheel disc brakes) Pads and hand brake cable. New seals etc on all 4 callipers. $1500+ just there!
New tyres. 235/60/14s all round. Sumitomo brand. Wheels are CSA 14x7 Globe style. Have been powdercoated. New caps. (arrive Monday)
Carpets thruout including the boot.
B&M Shifter (column has been blanked)
Full rubber kit replaced. Door belts inside and out, glass rubbers, rear screen etc
Brand new custom made driveshaft. Up to 800HP.
Complete exhaust system
Monroe shocks front and rear.
King Springs up front. (Standard Height)
Front seat belts re webbed and certified.
4x External Door handles as well as all locks including boot.
Alloy radiator.
Bottom tie rod ends

Bad points:
Front seats have split on the joins as per photos due to dryness in the material as car was dry stored for about 15 years. Back seat is OK, no tears. Door trims are not perfect, some minor tears etc
Some minor scratches and nicks in the paintwork here and there but no dents anywhere.
Air conditioning is not connected, requires a compressor, condenser and lines installed in engine bay. Fans etc do work. I could have it sorted and working for a additional $1000. I have all the brackets
