FJ40 LX with a 5.7L V8 LS1 engine from a 2006 Holden Monaro. Imported from Australia 5-6 years ago after undergoing a full restoration and engine transplant.The engine had done only 45k miles when it was installed and has done little since.
It features a 5 speed manual gearbox,front disc brakes, radio/CD player, factory power steering, remote central locking and immobiliser, new tyres and can seat 6 and is Right Hand drive.
Probably running 250-300hp, the work done to it makes it very easy to drive and live with, compared to my previous unrestored BJ42 LX, the difference in the ride quality, absence of rattles and V8 performance is night and day. It could easily be used as a daily driver.
It features some nice styling touches with a 1960's FJ flavour such as the mirrors and indicators, which I think only add to it's appeal and individuality.
The most impressive feature is the engine and the sound is just amazing.Twin pipes turn heads everywhere with the distinctive burble at low revs and sharp rasp when the throttle is opened up, and l imagine this is probably the only FJ40 in the county with this kind of performance. The pictures don't do it justice at all.
