ACE snapper Scott Montgomery is the owner of the factory 307 Premier wagon in Silver Mink. “I bought it from Norm Rafferty’s car museum in Echuca about 10 years ago,” says Scotty. “It was his wife’s daily driver for 20+ years and had rust in the bottom of the guards.

It was in bad shape, but it had all the original running gear: 307 Chev, Powerglide and a 2.78 LSD banjo diff. The interior is still original, but needed some minor repairs done by Griffs Trim Shop.

Most of the bodywork was done by myself with help from some good mates, while Mick Lowe at Eye Candy Customs painted the car.
