Notice the LE’s in the background 30 seconds earlier, about 6:58-7.05. I think that is Pagewood by the plant roof.

It was 1976. No more 253 or 308 past the end of HQ.

Interesting but that sound track would be enough to send you to a mental home.
Looks like a Sandman chassis are 3:30. V8 Ute chassis with 4 speed and GTS wheels. I reckon it’s my HX Sandman Ute chassis without a doubt😃
Only thing is there wasn’t a delay in production for my Ute 😃

Definitely looked like a sandman in waiting.

What's he go with the ute body on the production line at 5.33? Is the corrugated panel something to do with production process?

I think that is a transport crate of LH quarter panels for utilities from Woodville.

It may not have been a Pagewood shot but a lot of the video was at Pagewood.
