    Will you use it as a trayback ute or make it into a camper?
    Thanks.
    I plan to put a tray on it, possibly aluminium to try to keep the weight down. Then build a slide on camper/canopy for the back. This will retain flexibility for a variety of uses.

    For the sake of history, a few details of the FC that I know of.
    It is a 1963 2A Forward Control, chassis number 30100137B.
    It has (had) a Rover 6 cylinder engine and ENV rear axle, but Rover front axle.

    It appears to have been originally a PMG vehicle. PMG sign writing is still visible on the doors. There is a guy on FB who has stated that PMG had (approx 18) of these when they were constructing the telephone lines across the Nullarbor. They had scaffolding frames on the back so that they could install the pole top furniture from the rear of the vehicle.

    Mine has (had) a timber framed flat deck on the back. There was no evidence of any hinges or other fittings where side boards had been fitted.

    I'll post a few "as found" photos separately.

    Cheers,
    Chris
