  1. It's a very long time since I got a forum post notification... never did a compression test, when captain corolla heard the symptoms he diagnosed cracked piston too. Think that is where my enthusiasm began to die haha. Look forward to progress!
  2. I had those caps made in the machine shop where I worked at the time as a bit of a thank you for matt's help with my cars. We had some ideas of doing a production run back then but now I rather like the fact they are a one off. Not sure I could get a set done again either as I don't work there any more and neither do most of the good blokes!
  3. Sorry.. didn't transfer the price over from the gumtree ad. It was $9,500. And its sold :)
  4. Its probably not the done thing any more, but I still like to keep a build thread on my rides so I remember what I did to them along the journey! So introducing my latest acquistion, a very clean 1978 MX32 Cressida. I wanted to get something I could put the kids in the back of, that had power steering and aircon, and was generally going to be a comfortable family cruiser. This popped up on ebay for quite a bit of cash, and was all the way over in Albany WA. But it looked immaculate and I fell in love. Spoke with the owners and they had bought it from a car yard, who had bought it from the original owner, an old bloke who had handed in his licence. They were going to let their daughter learn to drive in it, but after a few people told them they had a gem on their hands, they decided to resell it. Apparently the power (!!) was a bit too much for her too. A bit of research (thanks Loz!) told me it was less than a grand to get the car delivered door to door from Albany to Melbourne, so a deal was done and I was the proud new owner of this gorgeous Cressy. She took about three weeks to get over to me, and involved 4 trucks and a train. Not bad value really!! When it arrived it was even cleaner than I hoped. Extremely clean. Drives really well, though man its a boat! I guess I wanted plush, but this is not so much plush as aquatic. Plans? Lower it. Nice wheels. A Nardi. Some kind of arrangement for sounds, though the radio is perfectly adequate. An electronic dizzy conversion, and that will do for the moment. 1UZ dreams one day maybe?! First mod was fitting baby seat bolts in the back parcel shelf. Oh how life has changed :) Will let the photos do the talking for now...
  5. what style are you after? this is off a KE25 from captain corolla / Peter Robinson Automotive 03 9544 1162 if you want to know more
  6. Posting on behalf of Captain Corolla.. here are a couple of photos of his grille
  7. After two months of holding a deposit on this, it's time to offer it back up for sale as the deposit maker isn't going to follow through on the deal. Hopefully this time it goes to someone who has the cash ready! Great looking and rare KE15 Sprinter up for sale. Family life means I don't drive it enough, so its time to move it on to a new owner who will hopefully stretch its legs a little more often than I. Details: 4k engine, standard with a standard carb. 5 speed gearbox Lowered slightly - springs in the front, blocks in the back Standard brakes - front unassisted discs / rear drums. Rare work equip 01 rims in 4x110 stud pattern - staggered width front to rear Reconditioned radiator that has done less than 500km Steering componentry adjusted and replaced as needed less than 500km ago Body is very tidy. It was originally a white car, that was painted red 15 or more years ago. It was a well done job, and included the boot, engine bay, dash and door jams. There are a couple of blemishes and faults after all this time, but generally she looks very pretty. The stripes are vinyl so if you are careful with a heat gun they will peel off, and the numbers are just magnets I put on for car shows. Interior is also very tidy with a nice Momo steering wheel. Dash top isn't perfect, seats have a few seams that need attention, but again overall it presents very well. It drives well, stops well, steers well and is overall a fun little car. I don't think it would need anything for a roadworthy, as long as your mechanic appreciates a slightly lowered car and a nice leather steering wheel. Car is on club rego so it is not transferable. Happy to negotiate on the price a little for the right buyer. If you would rather a set of superlite rims rather than the work wheels, then we can adjust the price accordingly there too. Inspections can be done at my place in Eltham after hours / weekends, or we can arrange an inspection in business hours in Richmond, but I will need plenty of notice. Swaps? A clean bay window Kombi, or a clean classic Holden or Ford station wagon might be of interest, but really, money talks, and I am sure if you own one of those cars you aren't chasing a Sprinter. Give me a call, send me a text, drop me an email, but don't low ball me. I am not in a hurry to sell and won't kick it out of the shed for nothing. This may interest people looking for a KE10 KE11, KE15, KE16, KE17, KE18, KE20, KE25, KE26, KE30, KE35, KE55, KE70, AE71, AE86, TA22, RA23, RA28

  11. Hi folks My trusty steed is for sale, as I have replaced her with something European. Ten points says I miss the reliability of the 95 :) I have returned her to stock so that she appeals to a wider audience, so will have various upgrade parts available once it sells. And no that doesn't include the wheels or steering wheel! http://www.gumtree.c...agon/1089335799 Sing out if you have any questions.
  12. Its been positively eons since I visited the forums. Old faithful is up for sale, returned to stock form to appeal to a wider market. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/eltham-north/cars-vans-utes/1991-toyota-corolla-wagon/1089335799
