]Hi guys, heres our '67 Ke10B Race Car,
Dad and his mates had some pretty wild old 'rollas many years ago, so we decided to create a tribute to everyone who used to play around with them as most of everyones bits, parts ,cars; etc still survived it was just too tempting to put it all in the 10 for a bit of cheap fun on the weekend......
We found it sitting in a paddock after 9 years, heres a few pics of how it was found

Brought the car home, started to dis-assemble so we could see what she had to hide. Intentions are to turn it into a budget Hillclimb, Circuit and Sprint car.

It seems to have been modified in the '80's judging by the aftermarket seats we found in it...
It didnt come with an engine or gearbox, but appears to have had a 5sp in it as the trans tunnel has had extra holes cut in it.
With the intention of making it a track car, we plan on widening the track of it, and putting a Ke70 front end in it, it will be "K" engine powered to kick off with hence the thead name, but with lots of mods to increase power handling etc.. Upon putting it in the garage, we pulled it apart, and found it had a bit of rust hiding.

A few plates and an attack with the welder seemed to do the trick

Langwarrin, that's where I saw it. Did you try to sell it around 5-6 years ago? I remember seeing it in the Harvey's wreckers for sale yard.

For sitting around unloved for so long it doesnt look half bad.
​Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you bought the wrong car.

Yeah its not bad at all, it was nowhere near trees so leaves didnt build up on it and rubbers were quite good (kept it pretty dry inside)
i was amazed when the carpet came up it was all good, its obviously had a pretty entertaining life but underside looks like a wrc car
or it went for a paddock bash or ten, far too good to wreck out or scrap so I'm savin it ..

surfers paradise disposing of many cars with its mental sceaming 4K, the engine and driveline lives on and will power the
tribute car soo many thanks jason for all your help and rolla knowledge over the years.. ;) ;)IMG_1285.jpg IMG_8500.jpg

Lots of hard work done today, cut out the rear quarter panels for tyre clearance and correct flare fitment. Whilst we were at it
we bare metaled the rearquarters and found absolutely no filler dents or rust!, very happy with that threw a quick coat of primer
on em to seal for rust etc..
