I bought mine from a Bursons, walked in and bought them off the shelf. Don't remember how much, but super easy to get.
The only problem was getting a socket for the nut on the upper ball joint, had to order that in.
The tie rod ends are readily available too, not at all like a Bellett.

I bought a big old open end spanner for the nut I found on Ebay too for $21.65 inc post :D
Then also got tie rod ends for about $80 with free delivery from the same seller I got the ball joints from.
Happy days

I wonder what the Isuzu badge in the grille is from? A truck I assume...but yeah.

Super cool!


You got me thinking about the grill badge Dave as I knew I had seen the same one somewhere else..... and I found the picture.
It was on another Wasp that was on the Vic Bellett Car Club FB page :)

Maybe there was a change with grill badge between models like there was between 64 to 65 sedan grill badges??
Perhaps a comparison of Wasp chassis numbers may give an indication??

Although mine is missing the little chrome strip on the centre bar but that Wasp still has it's one

Hi Sticky.
I have a December '63 and a November '65 parts books and both have the same part number listed.
So. Both utes may have had the change after Nov. '65. Has anybody got a parts book that was printed after
'65. :?:

Dave.
