Mark P owns this tuff FC Ute. He writes: " Here are the vital statistics for FC427. The engine is a 186 + 40 with VK Commodore crank and rods, Yella Terra turbo head, 1.6 ratio roller rockers, Toyota super-charger overdriven 100% and a 48mm IDF downdraft weber. It has a 60 litre aluminium fuel tank with 1/2" fuel lines. Gearbox is 4 speed M21 and a one tonne clutch (that does not cope), rear end is VR Commodore LSD shortened with grooved and drilled discs and 4 piston OUTLAW callipers.

"The front end is HR with HZ stubs and Commodore 295mm grooved and drilled discs and again OUTLAW 4 piston callipers. It has a 1" master cylinder and VK V8 booster. The car is lowered 2" all around, and steering is via a rear mount  rack and pinion with an EH column. Wheels are 17" x 7" speedy mags.

"The interior has a Camira centre pull handbrake and console and with the airconditioning unit from a Rover, heater from an early Corona and a set of Recaro seats, it makes for a good everyday driver, although it's pretty heavy on the juice.

"A real lot of fun."
