« on: November 26, 2012, 09:31:35 PM »
so about 2 years ago i spoke with the owners at mt barnet, struggled for about 6 months trying to get emails and pics, they were always nice and pleasure to talk to, just not very motivated, typical country folk, sorry if i offend, anyhow after 6months i gave up until now, tonight  phoning them after 2 years we will try to get pics, we were told a lighting storm caused a bush fire that burnt them out, so i guess we will see

Good luck.
I think someone bought the 101's. I'd be interested if you could confirm this.

From the pictures, there also was a workshop trailer. There may be other trailers about.

The LRPV shown in these three photos posted by rooster are one and the same. This Mk2 LRPV is ARN 178-206



From continuous exposure to the elements, this LRPV has lost virtually all of it's late service (as in the parade photos) camouflage scheme. The scheme that you can see would have been it's first/original camouflage painted directly onto the olive drab.

Seatbox, floor and gearbox missing from vehicle.

This LRPV is also the same vehicle photographed whilst participating in the 1988 Bi-Centennial Anzac Parade. By examining each of the photographs, exact comparisons can be determined thus confirming they are the same vehicle.

Frontal view (l-r):

1. ARN plate positioned to the RHS of bumper,
2. 8 inch high water pipe camo pole holders to brush bar,
3. angled spare wheel support bar,
4. Same design ROPS bar with mesh configuration.

Rear view (l-r):

5. Flat bar support bracket for spare wheel bar,
6. 6 inch water pipe to rear of ROPS bar for camo pole,
7. 2 x latches for timber storage bin lids,
8. Helper springs,
9. Green paint from original camo scheme showing through on tailgate,
10. 4 x tie down eyelets to tailgate.

It wasn't unusual for the SASR to bolt on/or throw spare parts into the back of the LRPVs when sent to auction. The bike rack can be bolted on in around half and hour. I suspect that it was bolted on either before the auction or by Mt Barnett personnel who may have removed it from a disabled LRPV.

It is definately the same vehicle :).
