Long shot, but do you know any history on it? Not a Manitoba car by chance?

When I had my first SD when I was 16, there was a green 65 post car here that had a 327 and a 4 speed put in. It was a 6 cyl car originally though.

Have to ask...

Cool photo    

We had one in Clinton, for years with straight axle in it...     He ran junk yard motors...   He'd have a fresh 283-327 for Friday night/Sat  

Sunday it would be 6 cyl.... wish I had taken photos

ok here it is about 3 years ago.My friend Mark has done a great job keeping this car alive since i sold it to him in 1988.It can be seen ripping up the streets in the lower mainland/fraiser valley,im sure that some of you lotuslanders have seen it around,if you see it say hi to mark and tell him you know TIMBUK! Im inspired off to the shop to work on the next one!

Were did the SD trim go to? I see it is missing now that your buddy owns the car. Pretty cool to see a car transform over the years.

Oh, ok. That's any Canso including SD, not SD unique.

The only thing unique on SD for trim is all the upper stuff on the sides and the one on the upper deck lid because it has the depression in it for the SD badge. All the rest is on Canso as well.

Unless I'm wrong...

yup, you are missing the SD trim in the one pic and it is the upper one around the trunk and back edge of the quarters
