Greybeards Chevron

Post by Greybeard » Mon Jan 16, 2012 3:30 pm

Not having much luck trying to post pics. I hope these work.
Car is a 1990 Chevron running a 4.4 litre Leyland P76 V8, ( Rover 3.5 V8 modified by Leyland Aus to 4.4) and original 5 speed gearbox.
I dont know much of its history between 1990 and around 2003 so would welcome any information if anyone knows this Chevron from the past.
I still have a few minor problems to sort to get it running sweetly and the paintwork needs a little attention here and there but thats what winter is for !. Ill keep using it as is and grinning while the sun still shines.

I see your car has a name "Luchia" which I think is fantastic and think more people should name there cars. :D

Hi. I used to go out with the daughter of the car's owner - many moons ago. It was a bit rough when they bought it (2003?) and I don't think it had much use as there were often minor niggles with it. Can probably get their contact details if needed?

Hi,
Thanks for that. Was the owner that you knew Alistair from Waikanae ? He brought it around 2002/2003.If so thats the person I brought it off.
