Normie Grahams ute 

 

Bought as a tribute car and was going to originally be built as a V8 car in memory of my son, Jared. After looking carefully through the cars history I found that it was a matching numbers car and I wasn't going to modify such an original honest classic.

It adorns it's original 161 with Powerglide transmission. The car had a quick restoration approximately 15 years ago but was starting to show age. A recent comprehensive restoration was taken place with fellow club member Alf Pagano completing most of the work alongside Norm. The ute is regularly driven and is always driven to shows and nationals, not trailered!
