  1. Have messaged you!
  2. Hi Guys Does anyone happen to have any British Army maps for sale that would have been used out in the Malayan Emergency please? If so, I'd really appreciate it if you could message me or email me at gg@motorcycleresults.com please. Huge thanks
  3. Hi Guys. I have got a few copies of the following ‘In Detail’ books going spare if anyone is interested. The titles I've got are as follows:☺ The Ferret in Detail costs £27The Saladin in Detail costs £17The Dingo in Detail is £16 If there are other titles that you'd be interested in, please do let me know. I also have some copies of Pat Ware’s Ferret book left at £59. All these prices exclude postage and if you’d like any copies or if you have any questions, please message me or email gg@motorcycleresults.com All my best Graham
  4. Hi guys. I was lucky enough to secure a consignment of Pat Ware’s excellent book ‘Ferret: The FV700 Series in British Army Service’ and a few copies left. Although published in 1997, these are un-opened and in BRAND NEW condition. The price is £59.00 plus postage and packing. If you'd like a copy, please email me at gg@motorcycleresults.com or Message me for bank details for payment etc. Many thanks Graham
  5. All I can say is "thank you" - I'll give them a call! But would a mileage of 358,188 kms be problematic?
  6. Once again - many, many thanks guys! I can see 18mph being a problem though but really appreciated nonetheless. If you see anything sportier I'd really appreciate the heads-up please Cheers
  7. Hi Guys Given that there aren't as many spares knocking around for the Fox as for the Ferret, who does hold stock of Fox parts please? Also, are there any generous owners out there with parts who are happy to sell? Many thanks!
  8. Thank you radiomike7. What are the pros and cons of the Leyland DAF DROPS versus the Foden please? Are there any for sale that you know of and how much do they go for please? And thank you John1950. In order: Don't mind if it's commercial or military. Limited use, so I don't expect running costs will become too big an issue. A Saladin is between 11 and 12 tonnes, just under 5 meters long and scrapes it at 2.54 meters wide. Hope this helps - any suggestions most welcome Huge thanks to one and all once again.
  9. Hi guys - this thread is a real eye-opener - and much appreciated. But what would be the best vehicle to transport a Saladin around the UK please? Had thought Foden 8x6 DROPS but hadn't realised that the width made it a no-no Many thanks!
  10. Hi Guys - first of all many thanks for your comments - really appreciated. OK, in no particular order... We live in Manchester and whilst we are near the countryside we'd have to drive on a road to get there - we have no access to farmland. I guess we would do no more than 200-300 miles on road each year. We reckon our first port of call is to investigate the CVRT family more thoroughly. With that in mind, we have contacted the Alvis Fighting Vehicle Society so we can check out the CVRT and see what we reckon - any suggestions, comments or alternatives would be hugely appreciated, we're totally open minded. Assuming we go down the CVRT route, what kind of maintenance and maintenance costs per year would we be looking at please? Also, what is the cost of a replacement track - and more generally, are spares available at a sensible cost? And, if so, who from please? Thanks once again for all the input.
  11. Guys - this is extremely helpful and very, very much appreciated! I'm wondering if the 430 family inherited the 50's British over-engineering whereas the CVRT - whilst technologically more advanced - suffered from '70's cost cutting. So would 430's be easier to maintain and run these days? And what do you reckon would be best for someone new to tracked vehicles please? We'd run it more on-road than off - and we're in south Manchester, if anyone's in that neck of the woods... Huge thanks!
