Hi all, this is my Cedric 332 bought about eight months ago... It's under restoration now. In two months hopefully the restoration can be completed. It's kindda in so-so wreck condition when I first saw the machine. Nobody knows and nobody wants the way it look previously.

Enjoy its earlier shots.

And down here is the condition just after i took it from the wrecker! Its look was just okay. But there're lot more to do on the internals... the fueling system and shell/body especially..

bad ass

The reason why i bought this car is because of its look and the size mainly. I have little information about this car. From the day I saw and until this muscle machine about to complete, my knowledge is still very little. It just the passion that drives me the right momentum to complete one of a kind like this in Malaysia. The net helps but not that detail as most sources are in Japanese language. What the heck.... what ever it is i will have to complete this huge job.

Here're some parts I manage to buy locally. Nobody knows where it belong huh! Yup... one way to get parts easily is to get to know the community. I'm very lucky to have joined one of the best old skool cars community in Malaysia. Google RetroSyndicate, then you'll be guided to the tiny world retro cars enthusiasts... Thanks to Pirate for this pair of tail lights!

Btw, if you have good info regards to this Ceddy 332, just reply with the links here... Thanks mates!

yup... it has gangster look plus chicken heart... :lol: it's a small engine of 2000 cc. Compared to the states, this engine is just very small isn't it... It's an RB20 btw.

mmmm..... this shots you mean?

it looks quite ok from a distance in black. in fact when i removed the two tones colour and put on that set of rims, it stands out. however, i havent finalized what colour should be on it. definitely dark colour is my choice... what do you think is it's a gun metal?

wow... you're so good. i didnt notice that. how ever, the rims i plugged on has 10" width on the rear... still got gap for wider wheels..

yup, no choise mate! that's the reason why it took about two months for just to heal the cancer cells, remove the rot spot and build up new shells.. now the body is as tough as gangster 8)

the pillarless version is the 332 series. 330 is the earlier version. they're are also very rare nowadays... enjoy some pictures!

It also has a Chev V8 in it, IIRC, and a lot of custom work underneath with chroming etc. It's not your average Ceddy. I believe it belongs to a friend of junkyarddog who is possibly not even on these forums.

Regardless, you can see a few more pictures of the car here, including some wallpapers;

I suspect this is really what you're after;

Did you put an RB in it or was it in there when you got it? It should have an L20E if it was only a 2.0 one.

They did come with the L26 and L28 as well, depending on market.
