    Bought for parts

    Ok usual story bought a series 2 then found a series 3 sight unseen for parts
    Well it arrived today and for a car sitting in a scrap metal yard it is in good condition only two small rust holes in the whole chassis
    And it runs and drives
    Besides missing the original air cleaner and having a 1980s two way and push button radio it's un molested and original condition
    So now a quick clean up bit of welding few lights then will consider registering it
    So now to search for another parts car for Mildred the series 2

    Bought for parts

    Looks like it's staying as the family has named it Everest
    Does anyone know what colour orange that it is must be its original colour as car appears to never of been pulled apart and its same colour under all rubbers and hidden areas
    Was also happy to find it has dual tanks

    Not sure about the colour. When the suns on it it looks like Camino gold but not when the suns off it. Nice looking thing. What's the engine like?

    Agreed. Even their little tents they set up were that colour.

    Thanks went out back then got the door in right light and has telecom Australia on it


    The engine runs fine no noise or blue smoke but did take a bit to get going flushed fuel tanks as it had been sitting for over three years moves with a few groans but going to run a gasket set thru engine and box and respray chassis basically give a good clean up
    Thanks everyone solves the orange colour question will post more pictures as things get done

    PMG vehicles were red.
    Telecom were orange as were DMR (Dept. Main Roads) NSW.
    I can recall PMG having Land Rovers and by the time Telecom came along they were using Toyota Land Cruisers. Not to say they didn't have Land Rovers as well.
    If it was a late series 3 it may have scraped in as a Telecom vehicle.


    Cheers, Mick.
