I have had regular contact with HCVC for some time and follow your activities with interest. Own an O series Bedford,64,000 miles genuine one owner mostly shedded, original Paterson Cheney timber tray. Was going until the Welch plug at the back of the motor went. Have to pull the engine out to fix, brakes no good but can cope without them. (38mph diff) need a pasenger window after a cricket game nearby.
Had an inter 1300 but sold it to buy a perkins Butterbox ACCO.
Can recommend MIDLANDS TRUCK SPARES P/L 03 54468722 (BENDIGO) for you blokes chasing parts or whole projects. Have not had to buy much so cant compare prices but advice was free.
