Default Windsor wanted

Does anyone have or know of a reasonable 302 or 351 Windsor up for grabs at the moment. I'm planning to run dedicated LPG and as such can get approval for windsor or whatever up here.
The master plan is to get up and away with a cheapy whilst building up a hard revving 331, then performing the heart transplant later.
If anyone can steer me in a particular direction I would appreciate the help. Fairly slim pickings in Darwin.
The ultimate would be a matched T5 or T56 (ramble, ramble)

Dave King of King Cobras (QLD) paid me a visit for a few days to have a look around Darwin and offer me some pointers on my build. A nicer guy I am yet to meet. I've posted a couple of shots of a crappy day out on my boat, Territory style.

Any of you cobra gents coming up this way should drop me a line, I don't mind a spot of fishing in between building the car.

Regards
Hogster

Yeh Hogster,
I feel your pain about the crappy fishing, it's good to see you at least caught some good live bait

Gawddd, there is no way I'd go out on that boat.

That thing is made of the same stuff they make those ch...che....ermm...those dark side engines.

Next time your out fishing have a look over the side and you might spot one. They paint the buggers blue so they can be hard to spot.

Thanks for all the responses so far. At least you guys are consistent in your unfortunate displays of fish envy.

As for the anchor thing. I dont get in the water much these days. 3 people this year have been consumed by large snapping handbags in these parts.
I'll have to stick to the dry ground engine recruiting.

Although you guys in southern parts may hear the contrary from your wives and girlfriends, size does matter, even with fish. Enough with the banter, I need an engine and gearbox.

To Boxhead - I can do it in less than 12 in the Hyundai. I love the circle with the line through it.

Regards
Hogster

There is nothing better than seeing those signs.

I say 12 hours as I have only done the trip once so far and that is how long it took with the handbrake (Ronda) sitting in the navigators seat.
