1965 Commer PB, Brandy

Post by otanica on Sat Nov 05, 2016 8:07 pm

Hi
Im from Melbouirne Australia and am building a Commer PB van.  They were made by the Rootes group who were bought out by Chrysler in the 60's.  In the US they were known as the guys who manufactures the Sunbeam Tiger until they couldnt use the Small block Ford.  
Anyway.  I have had the van for years and have slowly been modifying it.  Hopefully will be done within 12 months.
I am putting it on airbags and using a Toyota 3RZFE 2.7L and auto from a Toyota Hilux
To get it on the ground ive raised the front crossmember 7in and made big chassis arches and 4 linked the rear.
 









Thanks
Brad

Welcome to VV otanica !!!  That's some real nice work your doing. There are a couple of other members doing similar builds. Yours will be another one that I'm sure will be of interest so keep the pic's coming.

When you post the pic's if you'll select the 640 px size in the in the drop down menu the site won't chop the pic's off.
