Just picked up this 1973 Chev Luv, I am its second owner from new :D
It has the OHV G161 engine (not Gemini)
I already have An Isuzu Badged tub and Mikado steering wheel (having Isuzu badge made for it)
So hoping to turn it in to an Isuzu Faster :ugeek:

Very very cool brother J!
Just need a pic of the Wasp and Luv together. Don't think I've ever seen that done before.

Thanks Davo, Updated my list, The history of the Vehicle was one of the reasons I bought it. It was a little Italian man who was a concreter and it was his work car. Made sure I got a photo of him with the car!

Nice Josh, a pair of ute backs. V 8-)
Shrek had an Italian former owner too, but a tiler. He also has 8 extra years of toiling!

I know of one similar near me...hmmm... (Tracy, don't read that).

Cheers,Matt.
