The axle is a Salisbury, it’s hard to judge scale on there things but it looks more like the bigger 5ha than the car sized 4ha. That’s a truck axle so pretty overkill! I imagine it’s done for gear ratio reasons though, it’s easier to make crawler gears with the larger ring gear.
You are also totally wrong in the head and I utterly applaud you for it 😂
These are the first 2 that i will be restoring I'm going to start on WLB First, The is plan to remove the body from the chassis and look at getting the motor powered up . There is no manuals as far as i know so Plenty of Photos and notes are going to be needed as there is alot of wiring under there and they all look the same colour! .
This one sadly does not have its original body so will just be using it for storage until i can find a chassis and Body to match
I feel this was meant to say "I have had the last two delivered for today." Potentially to be followed by "Deliveries will resume again in the morning." I think i was perhaps too young to remember these in use, but i admire your dedication to the cause. I wonder what they could be repurposed as for use nowadays?
With its useful roller shutter door one side i have been thinking of repurposing the D reg One to a maybe a bar for events or some kind of Street food or drink outlet .I think there is a thread on here with some conversions ?
Forgiveness is easier to get than permission. My wife keeps telling me that if I buy another car one of the current lot has to leave but she has never pushed the issue. I only have eight cars (none of which are fully road legal), an engineless 11m bus, a tractor with assorted implements, and three trailers. Wife has two cars of her own. Our sixteen year old son has one car at present but has his eye on another which would bring the total to twelve. That's not too many is it?
We used to have the remains of one in the garden when I was a kid in the 70s. It was a flat bed, or maybe a box one that'd lost its box. I think my dad originally used it like an electric wheelbarrow for moving stuff around the plot when he was building the house, but I don't know for sure as my memories of it are more of it being an obstacle to work around while mowing the grass. It got cut up eventually, and although the axles were put aside for a while as something with future project potential, they were eventually weighed in too.
My worst worry about dying is my wife selling my stuff for what I told her it cost...
