British Chevrolet 1934 ish
It’s all there just needs a good home and someone who wants a project.
It might not look like much but it’s very restorable.
It was a James Hardy truck in the day.

I thought any GM product from Britain would be a Bedford, and Chevrolet if from USA, Australia or Canada. But I’ve been wrong before, I think.

I thought I was wrong once, turns out I was mistaken. ;)

Looking on the internet it seems late 20’s to early 30’s Chev trucks were assembled in Britain with Canadian parts and named British Chevrolet. Could not find reference to Canadian assembled trucks here in Australia although Canada was part of the British Empire with favoured trading relations.
British Bedfords had their own motors and mechanicals, but remember finding a W Bedford and Chev four water pumps were the same.

Long story short:- General Motors started assembling Chevs at the Hendon factory from 1923 and then to avoid tariffs more parts were manufactured in the UK. production moved to the Vauxhall factory at Luton in 1928 and in 1929 the LQ series with the stove bolt six engine was introduced, now with mostly UK made parts. The first Bedford appeared in April 1931 and although it was very similar to the Chev there were some important differences such as pressure fed oil in the engine and full floating axles.. The Chev was phased out a year later.

A couple of slabs will do it, I’d like to know that it’s going to be restored though.
Im near Emerald in Victoria. If you’re interested I’ll give you my mobile.

This will get you motivated. Just come up on Marketplace. Looks like a fantastic original runner.

Oh Boy that is the condition to find them in.:ohmy:
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!
