Did you put an RB20 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.


The car already set up with RB. prevoius owner could be the one who installed the engine, instead of running original L20 serie engine.. We also have diesel version an of course the 2.8L engine. They are also so hard to find still. My research come from this site btw.... it is also linked the address you mentioned earlier... Hit this link --> http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~kitabaya/index.html Can somebody please translate to me..?

That's a badass looking car. Too bad we don't have them over here in the states.

Awesome. Very, very cool.

My hats off to you dudes in Malaysia- I swear, all of you take on some SERIOUS metalworking projects that would make most of us cringe, as if it were no bother at all. And the selection of cars and parts you have lying around there is enviable. :mrgreen:

I cannot wait to see further progress on your Cedric. :tu:

Oh... and I think it should be black. Or a very, very, very deep, dark blue. :tu:

Yeah, that car is GANGSTA :mrgreen:

It's funny how some early Japanese cars 60s, 70s, and 80s resembled American cars.. your Ceddy reminds me of the 60s Olds 88 from back then.

Great job on the resto.. it gives me the motivation to do the resto on my cars, the RIGHT way.

You got an rb20 in there, too :shock: .. I wanna put an rb20det in my S13. lol

Hi there, I used to own a pillarless SGLE 332 as well. They are awesome rides that attract alot of attention. Here's some pics of mine:

And here is the project thread of the new owner. He has some very big plans for it, including a VH41 conversion as well as airbags and the like. I'm sure you will find it very interesting:

If there's any information you would like to know about them, just ask, and I will try my best to help.

I've seen this car in person. It's CLEAN. The real trick is hidden. Notice how this car has a air suspension, but no tank? That's because they made part of the frame a tank!!! I forgot where the put the compressor, but this thing really does sit on the ground flat.

Hi Solidstripe, you've got a beautiful cedric. All is preserved very well... May be you can help me to learn how they fixed the chrome trims... I still keep the trimmings but rubber seals or rubber in the trimmings are gone and yet to find how they're fixed on the doors.

Image

the chrome trims got few holes and the doors too. i wonder how they're attached together..?

Your ceddy: they are two different ceddys aren't they?

Hallo guys, the reason why i bought thi car is because of its badass, bad looking and it also has muscle shape. We do have muscle car here but very very limited. In fact muscle machines normally equipped with big engines and in here if the engines exceed 3000 cc the tax will rise crazily. That's the drawback and normal folk won't go for such big engine.

As an option, i chose this ceddy. It has what muscle machines have but the engine. With the RB20DET inside, that'd be good enough for me.

On the fabricating side, here're some movie shots i have.. no special machine. only talents do it to finish. how do all you guys normaly do to fix yours?

Hi there, there. The chrome trim around the windows is stainless steel i'm pretty sure. My rubbers around the windows was starting to wear as well. I'm not sure how they attached, maybe glued on the back?

My cedric, no, that's the same cedric in the photos.

Wow, that looks fantastic! Great work! I definitely envy your metalworking skills. 8)

Oh, as for flush door handles- there were US cars in the '70s with similar door handles. AMC used a similar design on a lot of cars and Chrysler E-bodies ('70-'74 Barracudas and Challengers) also use a similar handle, if you were ever looking for some to put on your car. There's been others, but that's off the top of my head. :tu:

Thanks guys...

Actually I need few more parts to complete tha car... this include front signal lamp, dashboard, double eye head light light, chrome trim etc... since very hard to get the trim and I have to complete the painting, I had no choice but to left the chrome trim/lining... this make may machine look bit modern... I put on celterline drag wheel to make muscle stand out... I'm not really into original anyway....

last week I went bak home looking for some stuffs. Couldnt find a thing I really wanted... but suddenly the sibling just turned out from nowhere.... I packed up quickly from the wrecker shop and followed the taxi.... unfortunately didnt manage to stop him...
