Gidday Guys

A Mate and I actually own the Purple Front shown above.

It's off of one of the Mystere/Recaro Toranas that were built in the 70's.

It's very similar to the Escort Taipan Front and would certainly look good on the Front of an Esky.

I agree with James , let your imagine run Wild. The Sky is the limit.

Regards

Sidepipes - mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Now we're talking.
CB - You can get an old School UHF. I'll have a look at mine to give you an idea and it can be still used today!!
Cassette player - I've got an 8 track and graphic equaliser to go in mine.
Flares - If their the right ones, they look great!

Chrome roof racks are off wagons,
There is a bloke on Ebay with bubble windows.
2 months ago sold a set of 14 x 8 12 slotters with 8/10 chrome & chrome hit on caps. But they do also come up on Ebay.
Try Ebay for a sunroof as well.

There are other sales available (Gumtree & Trading Post) for example.

Don't know unfortunatly.
All you can do is ask some of the older vanners on here or go to the Panelvans Of Oz site and check all Flash Harry's pics out.
