Storage is always an issue so I put the truck to work last week on a haulage run to @strongmanlifts to collect a new storage ramp for the workshop to free up much needed space. I was well impressed with not only the performance of my truck but also the fuel consumption of the stock 6 cylinder. It pulled strong for 140 miles round trip, empty on the way and loaded on the way back. My trailer is not the lightest and admittedly the ramp wasn’t the heaviest but it pulled strong up hill down dale on the motorway at a steady 60 mph taking it all in it’s stride. So With a quick calculation and allowing it’s not possible to accurately check fuel used it appears to of returned 15-16 mpg in work mode... now I don’t think that’s bad for a 63 year old truck? #tornadoautomotiverestorations #1956chevytruck #shoptruck ...

I am advertising this AMC project for the wife of client who passed away. From what I understand it’s a 79 that was sent to England as a prototype to test the English market? It was converted to right hand drive but very badly. I was asked to change it back to LHD and restore the car.
We have done a great deal of work to the car including all of the metal work to eliminate rust. The car was stripped to bare metal and completely resprayed using Epoxy primer for the base, (the paint work is about a year old) Most of the chrome was redone (not by ourselves). I have had the car running and driving before we stripped it for the works and the motor sounded good. It has 4 brand new types that have never seen the road, new rear brake parts along with master cylinder. Some of the front suspension was re bushes along with ball joints, new shocks and steering joints.
The interior is original and in fair condition apart from the head liner.
I would say the car is very complete but needs finishing... my client does not wish to spend any more money or time on the car so it is being sold as a project. The car is UK registered.
Please message me for more details serious inquiries only and I will do my best to answer your questions. The car is High Wycombe, Bucks for viewing on strict appointment only.
The sale of this vehicle is in no way related to my business but I do have records of the work done, I am just advertising it out of good Will for my client to help.
Asking £10k but open to sensible offers
Many thanks. ... See MoreSee Less
