Gday,
My dad bought this old girl many years ago with the view of keeping it for himself-
He had a set of rails put through it as the orginals were stuffed. He then bought a good secondhand cabin for it, and that was as far as it got.
It has sat in the shed since then, 22 years in fact!
I'm assuming that most parts will be there, but can't guarantee it of course...
335 Cummins, (Dad says it was very goodover freely, roadranger trans and eaton diffs.
The cabin and the doors do appear to be virtually rust free, so I guess thats something!
Dad's hoping to get approx $5000 for it, but he'll be a bit flexible I'm sure...
Give me a yell if you are interested and i'll send you more pics.
Cheers
Rich

You are right Rich. We all want one (or four) but none of us is game to bring one home.

Me too Sarge,
I'd love to do this thing up- Dad used to have one on the road with an 871 in it, single drive car carrier.



BUT reality has to bite somewhere... First one in the doing up line is the C1800, then the 1418.... and neither if them have been touched in years!!

Sold the old girl- old mate buying her has one with a stuffed cab. So hopefully we will see one of the two resurrected in the future!
