    S.A.D.F Series 111 S

    Its hard to find any info on the above.
    Most of the pics of these are utes not hard tops.
    This hard top and rear door are fibreglass. Note the panels in the roof where alpine lights can be fitted.
    Can anyone shed some light on this or direct me to a site where these are discussed.?
    Google does not give me much info

    Doesn't look anything like the SADF ones I drove in the early 80's. Most were rag tops unless fitted with an ambulance or signals body. The tail lights are right though. Most had a jerry can size box set into the sides behind the doors. Spare wheel would also have been on the bonnet. Just my recollections.

    Could it be ex police ?

    South African Police and SADF Transport - NONGQAI


    Also have a look at the Land Rover pictures in Volume 3 No 3 - Transport.

    Canopy here http://car.donkiz.co.za/search?what=...e=johannesburg (for some reason I cannot open the full advert).


    You may find it's an aftermarket canopy to turn a bakkie (ute) into van.

    It came via Brisbane.
    I did not find it though

    The hard top then is obviously aftermarket, fitted after it was demobbed, and before it came to OZ.

    This load plate does not look to be original as its fastened over where the jerry can would be and the last weight number looks a bit much


    The spare was kept here.



    And it has the recess for the jerrys still on the inside.



    Dont know if it was a soft top or had a truck cab originall but the bull bar looks the same as S.A.D.F. ones I found on Google.
    SAPOL utes dont seem to have them.
    Comments from those that know appreciated.
    Thanks for the links Colin.

    Here is a pic of the engine bay.
    Single overhead cam and twin SU carbs.


    The gearbox is a 4 speed Santana.

    Hi Keith

    That last number is the Combined Vehicle Mass, thus includes the trailer, both fully loaded.
