111-246 (pics included)
« on: March 23, 2017, 07:59:24 PM »
Hi All, It's been a long time since I have posted here on REMLR.
As of yesterday I am the proud owner of vehicle 111-246.
I would love to know more about this vehicle's service life and history if there is any info out there.
The vehicle still starts, drives and stops. It has spent the past 20 years as a farm vehicle behind Lismore, NSW.
The panels show their age but from what I can tell the chassis, firewall and floor-pan are all very sound.
Everything appears to be original and I intend on keeping it that way.
Plans are to source a canvas, refurbish brakes, drive-line etc and just drive it around to club meets etc..

Thanks in advance,
-Jarrod.

Hi Jarrod, looks original and worth the work needed.

I had a look in my hard drive and do not have a pic or any extra info on that one. Others may have something.

Hey thanks for having a look.

I am currently tossing up whether to restore or repair.

Part of me would like to keep the wear and tear that has happened over the years, where as part of me would like to restore it as it very much deserves.

What do people think?

Cheers.

I understand your position, it would be nice to keep the patina but if you get the opportunity to see one restored it might help you make your decision.

Good luck.

Mick
