Very rare - the Highline was only made for approx. 14 months in Australia and only a very few are left in Australia and this is only one of a handful in the UK.
Australia's premier rod shop 'Hoppers Stoppers' designed and carried out work to engine, steering, brakes, fuel tank, exhaust system, air conditioning, tow bar, wiring, etc. (we have all the receipts - totalling nearly 40,000 Australian Dollars).
5.0 litre Ford El Falcon V8 fully re-conditioned with receipts.
Done about 3,000km since total rebuild.
Gearbox - 4 speed El Auto gearbox - has always been with engine since new, rebuilt in the UK.
Rear axle - Ford 8 3/4 diff with 3:1 ratio. These were found in early Mustanges, Fairlanes etc
until the now famous Ford 9 inch diff emerged, rebuilt by Hauser Racing UK.
Pair of new rear springs (custom made by Jones Springs).
Brakes - 4 wheel disc brakes.
New set of wheels and tyres – American racing wheels and Goodridge tyres.
Power steering - from Ford falcon (Kirby steering box)
Air Conditioning - bespoke system.
Exhaust system - professionally/custom made (great sound).

Digital instrument panel which includes speed, tacho, temp, fuel and all indicator lights - high beam, oil warning, etc.
The dash has not been chopped. The instrument panel screws out and the original instruments screw straight back in (wiring would need to be altered). If you prefer this. I will provide the original instrument cluster.
El Falcon consol.
90 litre custom made aluminium fuel tank.
New tow bar.
New Nolathane bushes all round.
Front suspension, redesigned by Gartrac – new legs and springs - receipts available.
A lot of time, money and effort has gone into this car to get it to this stage, but there are a few things still to be finished - mostly the interior. Currently there is no carpet. The door trims are very ordinary. The roof lining is OK, but ideally you would replace it. It is certainly good enough to take to a motor trimmer and have it copied in the pattern and colour of your choice. The car is very presentable, but there are minor blemishes in the paint work.
This car was imported from Melbourne, Australia in March 2013 - all customs duties and VAT have been paid. The car is registered with a V5c in my name, is taxed and is currently being used as an every-day truck. Having had the vehicle thoroughly inspected and cleaned of the Australian dust underneath. It has been professionally wax oiled to protect against ingress of moisture. The previous owner had this car for 10 years, he bought it with no rust and as he stated, he still couldn’t see any obvious rust, I bought the car on that understanding without it being seen and was pleasantly relieved to see the car is in such excellent condition for a 1957 pick-up.
Viewing is essential as this is a custom built car. You are welcome to contact Simon the details below.
