Neat 302/AOD swap

Tuff240 08-19-2017 11:36 PM

I'm more interested in the 78/79 Bronco next to it. :oops:

aendrody 08-20-2017 10:41 AM

That Bronco is pretty awesome too. It is a '78. 351/C4. The toughest part of that whole resto was putting the damn bikini top on!

Also, who know what wheels these are?

Compomotive

Funkee 08-24-2017 06:10 PM

I kinda figured, but the centers looked a little off of the M05.

volvobrage 08-25-2017 12:09 PM

Its not compomotive, its a cheaper "Version" of comp. Dont remember the name though

Genuine BBS Motorsport centerlock "E55" wheels. You can still order them new from BBS Motorsport. Expect to pay $4000ish+ a set and another $2000-4000 a set for all of the centerlock bits to attach them to a 240. ;-)

t8fanning 10-29-2017 02:55 PM

Aren't they magnesium as well? I remember seeing someone do a group buy recently on Facebook.

Of Course they are....I hate my expensive taste. Here is RSI's (Johnathan's) wagon in the desert, Props to them and natural earth beauty. I am just the idiot who drives the thing, didn't build it at all. EDIT: I know I'm disobeying rules but I don't really see it as "my" wagon, don't care if it's removed, totally understand if it does, this thread just doesn't get posted in very much anymore and it's more of an inspiration for what a good background/light can do for your 240....end rant

Can you post the same pics without the photoshop blurring of background (and parts of the car), please? Nice photos.

Natural lens blur produced by Lensbaby Velvet56, not great execution of aperture by me but can't soften and sharpen at same time. (but also still a newer lens for me)

Prob posted before but I saw this in the wild. http://i65.tinypic.com/aa7xj4.jpg

RichGT 11-12-2017 06:45 PM

^ok, it took me 20 seconds

FreeEMSFred 11-13-2017 06:10 AM

What is/was the top half? Looks kinda beetle like, but the front window is wrong, and so is the roof shape.

GMS 11-13-2017 12:20 PM

Saab 92/96 :lol:

Paul S 01-02-2018 09:00 PM

Sorry for giant re-post but I just got to know the wheel and tire size of these, it looks super nice!
