Here are a series of photos showing it where it sat when we found this thing in Dallas Texas. At the bottom of this page, we have photos of it restored. Unreal amount of time and energy went into saving this one.
Then some photos of it as it sat when we got it home, a few lbs lighter-we left some stuff in Texas.
The moment of discovery was upon us- brace yourself-
It came apart, down to the last bits. Sandblasting was next.
White metal is the term used to describe the intended result.
Engine done, and refitted to the gearbox and frame. NOS master as well.
And this was as far as we took this one. It went to live in the UK, amidst a noteworthy collection of other WWII vehicles that are used often in public display.
THIS SPECIFIC MACHINE IS ALREADY IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION-
If you are interested in having us find you a nice restored, or restorable example, we are glad to help in all stages of the process.
