Custom builds are called “custom” for a reason, and this Holden FB absolutely falls in that category. It’s not just an FB, but two FBs. And a Nissan Skyline… and a Lexus.
A husband-wife team based in Canberra, Australia, built the FB over the last few years with help from Astill Design. Called Tail Spin, the team sewed two Holden FBs together, but that’s not the unique part about the car. In fact, the front and rear end are actually two rear ends from the FBs. The Frankenstein build sits atop an R33 Nissan Skyline platform.
After the body work, the team plucked a 5.0-liter V8 engine from a VS Commodore, married it to a T700 gearbox with a Borg-Warner limited-slip differential and built a custom exhaust. Numerous other parts are from various cars. For example, the seats are lifted from a Lexus.
Covering the exterior is a custom gold hue, while a candy-apple color floods the interior. The gauges are also a modern take on the original FB units. Check out the build in the video up above.
