Well I sold the Irmscher and got this Early model ..
Its a early 1975 TX .
While most other "Holden" Geminis were actually built here from a collection of Isuzu / Opel and Holden parts , This little baby actually came on a boat from Japan and got badged as a Holden.
The first few months of complianced Gemini's were imported from Japan to fill Holdens supply of stock while they made there own , it has many differences compared to the later TX Geminis Built in 1975 by Holden . well something like that anyway.
Before i got it
It has a G161z , Early H/D Type 4 speed with a 32/36 Webber and Extractors .
Fair bit of rust under the RH door is kinda scary , think i found some expanding foam in there after a small poke
Found a key for the boot , was squashed shut , Using a screwdriver i managed to pop that without damaging it anymore
Its taken a hit in the rear Beaver Panel rear bumper is okish , but also dented here
Engine came not running with a small head gasket problem :lol:
