Post by gold n beer on Sun Sep 04, 2016 7:37 pm



it's a blitz ex us army truck, the owner restored it and put a V8 flathead motor in it $32k restore


get a bit warm in the cab with that sitting next to your legs.

he said he should have put a 4cyl Cummins in it but wanted that hot rod feel.

hell off a old beast, but a slow rugged ride  lol!

Man that thing is a beast for sure, truly awesome rig. I haven't got much room in the ranger and the old man wants to go out in October so we are planning on taking my other ute. Brunswick diesel 4wd F100. Funny thing is it drinks less than the ranger.

na Pete has original diffs in it so a top speed off 82k's i think he said, Perth to maggot in about 9 hours if you can handle the noise and ride for that long haha.

my mates old man built one off these up 25 odd years ago, put a 351 in it and high speed diffs, no where near this condition his was a beach thrasher.
geez we had some fun roaring up and down myalup beach in it back in the day, no speedo but would have easily nudge 80kph on a fairly boggy beach. we got it bogged on a dune one day i remember, then we put it in 4wd and the thing just lept out of the bog and away we went.

this one is purposely built for 4x4 and truck shows, he had another couple round the back that he said he will get around to building someday.

Phil, you should turn the old valiant into a overlander, now that would turn some heads lol!
