Cool truck.

The driver even gets a bucket seat!

Surely that charabang needs a steering wheel.

Nice seating for the gentry, cheap tub/bucket seat for the chauffeur, and steering by wishful thinking.

Bet you can't guess the engine though . . . :P

PS The yellow tongue sheeting was some surplus I picked up very cheap and has been standing against the wall for about four months, they made a nice solid floor over the planks that were previously used as an instant shelf for odds and sods on the chassis.

PPS DOES ANYONE NEED A VERY GOOD M TYPE BEDFORD CHASSIS? ;)

I thought of a Charabanc as well. All you need are sides up to waist height around it. My guess for engine is a Badphid.

Can you get Wifey to change the date of the booking? I recently missed a good swapmeet only five blocks from my place to go to Dragon-In-Law's nintyth Birthday lunch. I was pissed off to find that her Husband was not there he went to a target shooting day instead

Morris.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Very relaxing weekend - and did not visit any wrecking yards or swap meets. Relaxing provided I don't include the 1-2 hour walk with dog in Bel Air National Park. Too late for date changes Morris but I was left in peace for a day and a half - one should be grateful for small mercies. :whistle:

Called in on a mate and analysed a fuel pump issue on his Series 1 Landrover. While there also checked the wiper set up on his Austin 245F.

Returned home to find the wheel dollies had been delivered already . . . ordered on the 26th, dispatched on the 27th from Melbourne, and delivered in Crystal Brook at 9:30 on the 29th. Bloody amazing, particularly as they said to expect delivery by the 4th or 5th. Not unwrapped them yet but will include a picture on here when I have done so . . .

The Clampett's never had a Jeep engine in their vehicle, not as much ooomph as the Munster Coach though. :S
