Hello
After a several year break it's time I got back into a cool cruiser. After owning several EF/EL/NL Falcons I thought I'd try something different.
I've been on the hunt for a couple of months for a suitable EB/ED/XG but not having much luck I stumbled upon a EA.
A genuine rust free Canberra car with original papers I thought it was too good and too cheap to turn down.

In brief the plans are pretty straight forward:
-4L
-4 speed with stally with larger transcooler
-TO4 turbo, genuine Garratt .60/1.15
-Intercooler
-Updated diff with spool
-Lower it a little more

Got a bit of research to do before I get stuck into it and would appreciate answers to questions I will have. :good:

The build won't get into full swing for a couple of months until I finish the build on my winter car:

Thats a nice starter car you have there! very clean and straight.

I've heard the BW 3-speed makes a good boat anchor ;)

Yes the 3spd is going to scrap metal :)
Going to give the 4spd a miss and go straight to a C4.

Started collecting and searching for parts.


Will be getting stuck into it once the zook is out of the garage.
