I even know the bloke who owns it, (Dicky Poole) and to be fair, its probably in a faily bad state! That thing has hauled some seriously heavy sh*t around in its time, so gearbox and diff may be no good. I think I might have it anyway, as theres still a few bits that I need for my car, like a manual steering columb!

I thought that one would be of interest to you Jas

Looks to have had a very hard life, like you say though, lots of useable parts there.

Ahhh it was you who sneeked in and got it before I managed too!! Top tip, undo the rear hub nuts when the car is still on the ground. Real pig of a job to do if you take the subframe off. One of them is LHT so watch out for that one!

HTH Jas
