Anyone out there interested in a Atkinson bogie prime mover. Now i am not an expert on a lot of things. One of them is this truck.
I reckon the cab is mainly f/glass , including the sleeper. It has the 6 cylinder Gardener motor. Gearbox not sure . Has an alloy lift up
splitter button on the g/lever. Bear with me. It is shoe horned into a shed and getting details/photos is really limited. Owner tells me it
is a runner and was driven into the shed recently. It's not close by so would take a while to get some photos as i don't go past regularly.
Message me if genuinely interested and i will make contact with the owner. There is also another Gardener motor available.
Yes John SA. Mid Eyre Peninsular. Pretty sure this one has more than 150ks on it. Would you like me to try and get some pictures? If there is some interest in the truck i will try and arrange for the lady to get the boys to fire it up and get it out of the shed. For me that's approx 400 kms round trip. I am trying to get access to an inspection of a tractor a bit further on. So if the stars line up i will have some more info for you. I will keep you posted. Very lucky here up to date. No travel restrictions, good roads,and not a lot of traffic. A few weeks ago on i did 600kms on the day looking at trucks.
Inter A... we are all interested, it will be much drooled over and dreamt about..... they are a much sought after very collectable truck with an economical reliable Gardiner diesel. Sarge is dead keen, Bluey is right about shed space but the D word looms also, ....don't, dumb, dead, divorce...... you get the picture..... chicken also starts with D.
I would not ask you to go out of your was Inter A. But pics if they happen would be awesome.
No worries folks. That's not a problem, and since i can't drive past any of the borders at the moment, i will just keep driving around the triangle , seeking out some more treasures. A close friend has 2 largish Austins ( running and very tidy) in his shed. They did belong to his dad's building company , but since his passing ??? I will ask again what is to happen with them.
