Adam.
I made contact with the owner about 9 years ago, I failed to make much progress on a agreeable price for me to purchase it, can't exactly remember but he would not move off £3,000 or £4,000.
Would have loved to have bought it at a sensible price and given it a complete nut and bolt rebuild with a bit of TLC.
4 X 4 with 6 forward and 6 reverse gears, an absolute little jem of a work horse.
Also been looking out for a Thwaites Workhorse, a flat bed articulated rough terrain utility/platform vehicle, another rare beast that I have lusted for.

Thanks
Phil

:wave: Adam, there is a bit of Fred Dibnah in us all, it is just a case of liking oily rags and the smell of grease, paraffin and anything that that has a whiff of octane in it :think: :wtf: :roll: :)
Teacher in Dunvant Academy of the Fine Arts 60 odd years ago (joking name for junior school 1957-8) suggested to over half the class "that it was like the blind leading the blind" :lol: :lolno: :clap:
Easily led the same as Rod, there is no hope for mankind really it's just a question of time :angel: Rod would be proud of being described as "esoteric" that is one hell of good word to be using and it is not even a T G it's a F yet :thumbup:

Going to photograph a lorry based crane now that has been stuck in a hedgerow for maybe 40 years, it's going to be bramble and thorns battle for the next few hours :lol: :roll:

Thanks
