Item description

For Sale, hard to find Panel truck. This vehicle is 90% complete and originally was LH drive and was fitted with an 8BA Sidevalve V8 and 4 speed heavy duty floor change gearbox. The body was dismantled, engine and gearbox removed leaving the main body shell still bolted to the chassis. The body was sandblasted on the chassis and then painted with etch primer. There are 4 bullet holes in the RH side and 2 in the left side and a rust hole in the roof panel just above the RH barn door. There are other minor dents present but is overall very straight and almost rust free. The roof panel has bolt holes in the 4 corners, probably from a roof rack and will require some panel work as it is stretched in one area. The rear doors, front clip, and front doors are as purchased with surface rust and some dents. The front guards have rust in the lower back corners, the doors have no rust holes. Original front bumper is in good condition and the rear bumper is missing. The original single front seat has been replaced by a full length bench seat. This vehicle has been converted to RH drive using Australian F1 parts which has basically been completed apart from welding in the dash. The steering column has a column gearchange fitted. The chassis is basically untouched except for some gearbox crossmember mods. Original drivetrain has been replaced with overhauled components and is now fitted with an 8BA Sidevalve V8 with mild cam, exhaust port dividers and full flow oil filter but still has a single Stromberg 94 carby. The air cleaner has been converted to a dry element filter. The generator is the only engine item that has not been overhauled. The gearbox has been overhauled and is a period 3 speed overdrive gearbox with 12 volt solenoid. The tailshaft has been overhauled and modified to suit. The rear axle assembly has been overhauled except for the brakes. All of these components are functional but have not travelled any miles. Electrical components are 12 volt negative earth. The radiator has not been overhauled. All of the brake parts including linings, springs, wheel cylinders and hoses are new except for the master cylinder and lines and the handbrake cable. The front drums are new and the rear drums have been machined. 2nd hand spares include LH and RH dash assemblies, a chrome No plate light assembly and spare grille assembly.This panel truck was originally a 5 star cab but included is most of the parts to upgrade it to a 5 Star Extra cab including bonnet trims, door trims and the stainless w/screen surround. Other new parts included are, new front and rear chrome bumpers, repro hubcaps, headlight trims and a 2 speed self parking w/screen wiper conversion.mport documents are included. A hard to find desirable vehicle project with a lot of the hard work already completed.
