1978 HOLDEN SANDMAN HZ UTE - MANUAL - ONE OWNER

Presenting in Metallic Blue with brown interior trim.

Delivered new by Dowlings in Swan Hill Victoria in 1978.

In it's early years it was a rural working ute and then put away after some engine work for nearly 35 years with little use. The owner has done all the servicing himself, but doesn't have documentation to show for it.

Powered by a 253ci (4.2Lt) V8 engine, it produced when new 120Kw and 355Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via 4 speed manual gearbox.

Original performance figures for the Sandman ute are hard to find, however the owner embarked on a refresh of the original engine and completed the following:-

Engine heads ported and polished, blue printed and balanced.
Stage 4 yellow Terra heads
TQ30 camshaft
4 Barrel 650 carburettor
Electronic ignition
4 speed manual gear box replaced with a new Toyota heavy duty 5 speed gearbox
Heavy duty clutch

Current engine performance would be an improvement on the original specs, but no figures are held.

This engine work was completed in the mid 80's after which the car was put away and used only occasionally.

A fairly rare offering, particularly being in the one ownership for over 42 years.

Eligible for Historic registration in most jurisdictions, this equates to minimal on road costs.

Available to admire on our state of the art showroom floor in Adelaide.
