Bolwell Mark 7, possibly 1967
It's currently disassembled: for the past 10 years it has been stripped down and reconditioned.
The engine was rebuilt by Parry's 4000 miles ago but 15 years ago. It was in running order ten years ago, but since then it's been a project so it hasn't run since then. It's been garaged all its life.
It has triple Strombergs; they probably need to be rebuilt. The engine is a 202 Holden.
The chassis has been stripped down, sandblasted and painted with POR15. New fuel lines and brake lines have been run in through the centre of the chassis.
The front suspension is UC Torana. It's been changed so that you can adjust it for camber and caster. The rear suspension has been modified so that it's now upper and lower parallel trailing arms with a panhard rod and SPAX coilovers.
A Castlemaine bell housing has been used, the gearbox is a Celica five-speed, which has been completely rebuilt. The tail shaft is shortened and balanced. So the rolling chassis is pretty much ready to go.
Glen Goldfinch did most of the modifications and can certify them all. Glen is also associated with the Bolwell car club
The body needs a few small repairs, but it's never been dinged. Mainly it just needs to be mounted onto the chassis. Everything is included: handles etc, all Holden.

BCCA National Easter Meeting ~ Tanunda, SA
Easter 2017 is getting closer and the organizing team have it all sorted
We visited the Barossa a few weeks ago and have been fortunate to be offered some amazing things to do and see, as well as the "Easter Standards".
The alternative event to the Motorkhana on Sunday is a bus tour which will take in lots of interesting places around the Barossa Valley so there will be something for everyone.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
