THE SUNNY TRUCK IS UP FOR SALE

Life has moved on for me and I can’t hold onto this any longer, time to pass this onto someone else to enjoy.
Below is the basic spec sheet. You will notice I haven’t given wheel size for the current set up. This is because I do not wish to sell with them. I have also recently jumped into an Keihin FCR41 carb setup for this car. As it is not 100% with getting the right amount of fuel to them, they will not come with it and I shall sell it with the factory EFI setup as a running, moving, sliding car.

I live on the North Shore of Auckland and you are welcome to come view if you are legitimately going to buy it.

Price: $8,000. I’m pretty firm on the price so don’t expect much movement.
I am not looking to swap it for anything either

Comment if you want to buy it, please no window shoppers

OVERALL CONDITION:
Let me start this by saying that lendich construction COVERED this thing in rust proofing. That is not to say it doesn’t have rust but that the rust proofing is there. There is some rust though which I recommend having removed if longevity is the aim. There is a spot in the passenger side roof gutter, a spot in the rear quarter panel in the seam and some in the front scuttle panel. There is also surface rust in the tray. Overall it’s not the end of the world but it was never meant to be a show piece. It is crazy fun to drive and driving it is the main purpose.

Sorry I thought I had a photo of the engine bay complete, it looks mostly similar to the following:

Thanks Chris for the photos! This was such a fun day, I can’t wait for the next one. Between motorbikes I’ve been getting along with fixing the radiator. I have everything I need, I just need to modify the water outlet to fit the thermo switch and wire that in and we’re good to go.

See Freshly whipped for more of the day. Come on Chris, get some more video up!

IT HOWLS

July 8, 2012

I’ve become lazy at updating beeoneoneoh because after following a few incredibly well documented and fast moving builds, I hardly feel motivated to do so. Well I have some news at the least so here’s where I am:

The last post I did on the 120 I was driving it up and down the driveway but it was lacking a few crucial things which I’ve now resolved.
– Alternator now charges the battery
– Swaybar is now installed with new bolts/nuts and I’ve cleaned up the links. I took out the thicker 120Y bar because I thought it wasn’t helping with understeer with the A15 in there. I may put it back but the factory one is fine for now. Note, when you properly lower a B110/B120 the swaybar rotates and touches the front of the sump. I made shortened linkages to fix this but with the SR sitting nicely into the firewall, I no longer need them. Factory items work perfect.
– I went around the engine bay and tightened a bunch of things which I had left finger tight as it was all being taken off so frequently. This definitely fixed a few issues.
– I went through the wiring with a diagram and deleted some unnecessary items and connected everything properly. I still need to figure out a few things but I did get the use of many items back which helps when you’re trying to test drive around the hood at night.

This week I drove it around the block with unsatisfactory results but it drove non the less. I figured that having fuel in the tank (that wasn’t stale) was a good place to start. I drove it again tonight after doing the above with very good results. Clean power delivery, and a smooth induction howl through the valley. I’m stoked, over the moon in fact. Time to get serious about knocking this bastard out so I can drive it without the fear of loosing my license.

Here’s an old photo for nostalgia’s sake:

Too much cool to comment on


I just remembered I had saved these photos of Kuni’s old square light sunny truck! It actually had quite a bit done to it and no doubt would have sounded awesome through those Solexs. More here and here

Maroon Sunny Truck

June 11, 2011

I haven’t looked through my Sunny Truck folder in a good 6 months or so and in all honesty I forgot there was some good stuff in there! I also forgot how good the lines are on 1200s. There are some obvious stand outs in the folder which will always make me smile but it was this image which tells me three things. One: long wheel base 1200s have the best rear quarter panel! Two: THIS is how you pump the arches on a B chassis. None of this bubble flare or cut and weld business. Three: small, red, old Japanese cars are the bees. I love how understated this red is, effortless.

What would beeoneoneoh be without a b? I’ve been starring at this photo for quite some time now, you can imagine why.
I’m not going to try and make excuses as to why this hasn’t been my priority for a long time now… but it hasn’t. I have been doing bits and pieces and not posting about it but I’ll do an update at some point. Not a lot of large things to do still,  I’m just plugging away at lots of little ones; you know how it is. I thought you’d enjoy the photo, I do, and in due time this car will be better than that^

THE bar for street truck ride height. Interesting they must be 7s in the front as it doesn’t look like he’s running a lot of camber up front. Another photo
