    Nice find.

    When I first saw the 2nd article pictures, I immediately thought it was of my friend MisterBishi's old SAS'ed white gen II, but I guess someone else in AU has also done the swap on another white gen II.

    it does look like replica of Frank's truck. He rolled his awhile ago. I'll find issue of 4WD Action where it was featured.
    oh wait
    Dean lives on the NSW Central Coast, and when he’s not working as the manager of the local Putt-Putt course, he’s up in the Watagan Mountains enjoying one of Australia’s foremost off-road destinations. When Dean bought the truck as a replacement for his lifted SWB Paj’, it had been thrown on its roof thanks to a snapped rear axle.
    The vehicle was a repairable write-off, and Dean seized the opportunity to get hold of a good basis for a build-up. “For a time, I had three in my yard,”
    it prob is Frank's truck chassis with new body after all.
