"I purchased the Wrecked Rusty Army Machine from Duncans Wrecking Bundaberg in the first week of 2004. I was there looking for parts for my Series 3 G.S..

"The landy was in a wrecked state - the parts that had been removed from it were:

  • Engine head - lower section still intact, gearbox intact.
  • Air filter.
  • Radiator.
  • Carburettor (replaced with a strongberg carby).
  • Windscreen wipers.
  • Driver and passenger doors.

"On the other hand, it does have some Australian Army G.S. fittings still 'in-situ' after 30+ years:

  • Bamford PTO Winch and PTO Throttle Control.
  • Twin tanks with brass dippers.
  • 'Gardening tool' brackets.
  • Original loom.
  • Fire Extinguisher Mount.
  • Blackout Lamp & original mudguards.

"This vehicle, prior to wrecking, belonged to the owner of Duncans Wrecking, who used it as a farm utility vehicle until recently when he had sold his farm and had no further use for the vehicle. When located in the wrecking yard, the Land-Rover tub was full of "farm junk" - i.e. an open and spilled bag of pellet manure fertiliser all over the rear tub, several reels of old barbed wire, a container of chicken feed, countless containers of unidentified chemicals and enough old water resting in the rear storage compartments to fill a small swimming pool.

"The 'in-service' history and previous ownership history prior to farm work is all an unknown. This Land-Rover has a 'delivery/warranty plate' that states:

10/3/1971 [ delivery into service - warranty begins ]
STH [ Southern Command - Victoria most likely ]
10 [ miles on odometer at delivery - warranty begins ]

"I'm taking pics at various stages and making a record of everything that is being done and when it happens. I will send you some more photos soon as jobs get done..."
