    Right on but only because the 120 Isuzu was blowing coolant and I have to pull the head.
    Needed a run anyway

    well done
    Mmmm I dont know about that.
    I dont know if they are that rare. There seems to have been more made than we first thought.
    But hey, old buggers need to keep occupied.

    I would think they are somewhat rare even if there were say 50 made Worldwide. 50 out of something like 16,000 to 20,000 86's in 1954's production still makes it only about .3%. More than that of the 10 that came to Australia we know that at least 4 of them had their review bodywork removed and even if they still exist as vehicles, they will never have the bodywork you have.

    50 made, thats more than, a 2B Firefly, a TACR 1, a TAC-T, A One Ton Civialin Firefly. Carmichael conversions usually 1 or 2 max per design.

    Bloody things as common as muck.....

    It should have the 2 litre siamese no 47100688 but has a 1600 No 16101596 with G,box 16101605. One would wonder why engine and gearbox were swapped.



    It has a 1950 carbie and DVX dissie. I have been after these for a while.
    All the galv cappings are rusty. Presume from getting soaked in the bore water.

    Hi Keith

    Given that the cappings were painted on the RR vehicles, I wonder if they were ever galvanised.

    Is there any evidence they were gal at some time?

    If there were 50 made, we know that there were 10 in Oz and AFAIK 1 in NZ, 1 in Malaya and some in the UK how many others would have been built in 1954? My number of 50 was a pure guess as a maximum number.

    I just wonder how Keith is going to get it's main accessories, one Mrs Betty Windsor and one Mr Betty Windsor?

    I thought of that too. No galv anywhere on the outside seems odd. I will pull some cappings and look under.

    Nope. No Galv on hinges cappings or windscreen frame. Probably to let the paint stick better. Only galv is on bumper.
    Body colour was originally black, so was the chassis engine bay, firewall, seat boxes, black everywhere. Maroon put on the body for the visit then painted black again. This can be seen by rubbing through the layers.
    Dropped the tank and black paint was there too.
