1965 Prince GTB(Skyline)

With my C110 project coming to a end the hunt was on for the next "project" and this Prince just happen to fall into my hands 

 

This one is sadly missing the stock motor but with a Red top RB20 and 970kg weight should prove a fun car

So I got the car registered then thought I would give it a shake down at a skid pan day.IMG_4320.thumb.JPG.be9870a49a84073294d4eaa943ceb4c3.JPGIMG_4322.thumb.JPG.582e9f939ac1aad5cb6a29d55cd82b94.JPGIMG_4333.thumb.JPG.c06a7d8d50ee32c552b83f25088e0c85.JPG

This showed up a number of issues, so now it's on to making the car safe.

Car is not breaking real well so going to do Volvo upgraded.

There was some vibrations at 80kmph seems to be the tail shaft so going to do a custom one piece. When I jacked it up to check tailshaft found the fuel line runs along side the tailshaft so needs moving. 

Not sure the LSD is working probably as well. 

Then the motor has a bit of a miss, would love to get a intercooler of some sorts in there too will see.

OEM prince rears only probably last this last change.IMG_4972.thumb.JPG.83df1ca3472096880b564b99ee27f719.JPG

New dual set up to work with the new Volvo fronts 

 

Strange old school quirk the left hand side wheels nuts are left hand thread and right hand side right hand thread. I'm lucky I didn't snap a stud before I worked it out

Nope it would not have been easy at all, my plan was to make a custom 3/4 triple core radiator and use the other 1/4 space for a small in intercooler. CB12ED95-6FEA-44B4-BD3C-7DE2D53B7B1F.thumb.jpeg.d51fe07c177210a2f5fde2222eb9ebe9.jpeg

but I decide to change the motor in my other car and will now be putting the motor out of it into the Prince DD911671-96F3-44DC-A86B-D8E6F00C6AE3.thumb.jpeg.1f8a18cae6bf98da8b536933660e0091.jpeg

this motor makes around 175-180hp mark so will be a little more the RB and make all the right sounds with the triple Webber’s
