Lang, you appear to find lots of great buys around the Brisvegas area. I suspect that other places have similar goodies but I have found very few. I think this ad must have appeared on facebook because I see most vehicles advertised there show a one horsepower engine, or as in this case, a one litre engine. It must be a fault in their program.
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!

Detective's reply

It's a USA import in the 30*** Ch/no range, and been here since the mid 1970's. A Polish American Mike Kudinoff imported around 5 or 6 for his SA waste disposal business South West Waste, but Brambles bought him out and the trucks were dispersed still LHD.

Was pretty sure that was the case, these were blue and white I think to start with
A fairly light sort of blue stripe about 2 foot high but I could and most probably am wrong
