Me thinks, based on that last pic that the original paint is still present.
What's to go with these hard tops with the curved back?
I've seen enough of them now to think they were some after market option?
Thoughts?

Very nice Cliffy,

Seats are in great condition and still nice and original inside. Mine has the same rubber mat in the rear. 112781 wasn't a MP vehicle , I just set it up that way for Corowa , the year of the emergency vehicle.

Normally I have 22 Construction TAC plates on it to remember her WA past.

Hey just for your info , I grabbed a set of ARN plates made up from Rod and they look awesome.  A nice finishing touch.

Good luck with her Cliff and I hope you get heaps of enjoyment from her.

Cheers,

Mick

Yeah, I recon so.
I'll leave off till past the pits here in WA too.
Strange they have gone but TAC plates still there.
The only missing thing I don't have is a NATO plug

Well she's back in WA and every bit what I expected ;D
Drives sooo sweet. A little miss when cold I need to sort out.
There's a mystery box in the back that I know contains the original dyno but not sure what else.
The paint is original and in good nick.
Been too wet here to get under it...

So the mystery box yielded the following take offs:
Original dyno, Pintle, fire ext bracket, seat brackets,drivers side wiper mtr, 1 tac plate front ( not the bracket mounted one  :( ), front drive flanges and caps  ;D

Gotta be happy with that!

Pit's this Wednesday AM.
Decided not to go overboard on the prep. They will ping me for sonething so may as well give them some easy marks. At least I have a tick and flick to complete before the next inspection... 8)

Fantastic mate,

Nice to hear a East Coast West Coast  military vehicle purchase go so smoothly.

It must be satisfying dealing with a honest vendor ?

Cheers mate,

Mick

They were great. Even let me use the NSW plates while I got here regoed.
Gotta refit the brush guard and bumperettes as well as the PT holders.
Roof HAS to come off for a Sunday drive to the Brittish car day.
