Thanks Ash, getting closer to a solution how to sort this out. What's a good way to find a good chassis ? It seems all the rest would be mostly replaced one way or another - I'm looking to spend around 1-3k to get something that has a solid chassis and very good undercarriage.
I'm pretty sure I've seen Australian customized ones that were V8 and were 7 series but could be very wrong here.
Which series would have a v8 engine and been around for long enough so I could find a cheap one to restore to my needs rather than investing into something more expensive ?
I'm currently in the search of a 7 series V8 land cruiser - 76/78 - something with a good engine, the rest doesn't matter much as it would be mostly re-built / customized anyways.
Question is what's a good place to look? So far any searches in google didn't come back with a single...
