Arriving as a partially disassembled project the current owner was kind enough to give us the opportunity to restore this very desirable GT.
His time and input throughout was invaluable assisting us in sourcing parts and information enabling us to restore the XB as close to factory original as possible.
No corners were cut, with numerous new old stock parts used, every other component was reconditioned with the emphasis on quality and high attention to detail.
With the help of Australian Muscle Car Magazine's Muscle Assist the current owner was able to trace some of the cars history and the first 4 images were unearthed thanks to a past owner taking the time to come forward.Showing a colour change and eighties interior treatment.
