So the comment about the body being weak was as unfounded as the suspension comment?

I'll take a look at the balljoints and everything. Thanks for the heads up  :)

Another query about the beddy for you folks:

I mentioned that I was going to buy one and was told by a friend that the bodies are weak and suspension is unreliable. Could anyone tell me things I should look for when buying and what the negatives would be overall?

Thanks to you all. I'll make some calls now that I have some idea of what to ask about. You've been a great help  ;D

I'm not mechanically minded  :-[ so it'd be mostly up to a mech unless I can find a mate who can give me a hand.

What would be a good price for a decent reco'd Holden 6? I don't want to overpaying some slick dealer for an engine I could have gotten for  half the price if I spoke to the right bloke.

Hey BUGA folks...

Name's Monkey and I have a dilemma.

I found a '76 CFS for a decent price, but it's packing 400,000KMS on the clock. This makes me want to change the engine, but I don't know what would fit in place of its current one. I've been craving a Beddy for ages (it's the only van I'll settle for!) and I don't want to pass up the opportunity to have one of my own.

Any ideas?
