174 444 Restoration
« on: May 12, 2017, 08:37:27 PM »
So it begins, the awesome task of restoring the old girl to her former glory.
This is basically as I bought her. I have however put my old Disco wheels on her.
The motor is the original from the vehicle, 90% of the electrics work but it appears there a few items missing.

Very good. This is the great find with all the SVN reports isn't it, and the photos show its all there. Excellent for 40+ years old!

A bit of a survivor this one,

I'm looking forward to seeing it come back to life. :)

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.
Yes Mick, this is the one with all the history and pics you posted up.
Also, yes, I will be keeping the hardtop for now, this will be my daily driver once finished so there will be some little changes from militayr spec to make her a little more practical for daily use. I will however eventually replace the hard top with a canvas top.

Today the top came off and the tub all undone ready for removal, fuel tanks out.
Will post pics tomorrow.

Sean.
