I was visiting my favourite scrap dealer and treasure collector today and was shown this very restorable lady. Engine turns over, some compression. Oddly the steering wheel and steering box is missing.
She is for sale.... Gumtree
www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/lockwood-south/t...b-chassis/1251130269

And for the record I was making a deposit not a withdrawal ( I go back next week unaccompanied)

Sarge:-X,
The spring mounts show it was never a tandem drive, the cover at the rear of the worm part of the diff will cover a bearing and some spacers. It is a bit early for hydraulics.
I no not need another restoration although the Albion would suit me but I do have an urgent need for the two universals, one at the diff and the other joining the two parts of the drive shaft. As the steering is missing, maybe he would sell the Uni's?

What general area is he, or you, in? In pre-covid days I would go anywhere but these days I will have to work it out.

Here's hoping,
Morris.
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!

That style of radiator was introduced around 1930 nd in that era driver entered from left side so often no door on drivers side. Also early days for pneumatic tyres so better pommy makes had a pto driven air compressor. Hard to pick the model but makers plate should be middle of left chassis rail.

Model 54 was introduced in May 1933 and superseded in 1935. Some conflict with book re load capacity at 5 ton load but plate says 6/8 ton - a heavy jigger for it's time. It used a new design 4 cly 6 litre EN200 engine. Going by the serial No it was the 4th one built.

Aus.... to the best of my limited knowledge this was plucked from a farm in central vic. Bidstbc.... Pete is not in the habit of buying anything other than scrap.

And Morris, as Terry said, Lockwood South, just off the Calder Alt. But I doubt he will sell parts off it.
