  2. Sorry, has been sold some time ago B.
  3. At the moment, still available. e-mail enquiries to: Barrie@marcherlords.co.uk
  4. Now Sold .............................. I bought F207077 a couple of years ago and from what I can gather it was Mr Chris Wilkinsons own Dingo and he used to sell bits off it, when he had the yard at St. Albans, and replace the parts on F207077 from his stock of new parts. This seems to be borne out by the gearbox still having a number in yellow wax crayon on the casing. From my research F207077 was manufactured in May or June 1943. I have loads (... and I mean loads !) of information regarding the vehicle together with Workshop manual, Parts List, Drivers/Operators handbook etc. The vehicle is totally straight, starts well, drives well and looks really good. The tyres look to be unworn. Exhaust in excellent condition. Butler headlights with the blackout hinged part. As new canvas roof. Working WS19 with correct rubber 'anti vibration' mounts. Correct 'A' and 'B' set aerials/bases. Convoy light. DVLA road registered. All tinwork, fuel tank, wings, starage boxes etc are in excellent condition. Loads and loads of extras - Fire extinguisher, correct jack, dated shovel, Petrol/Oil/Water cans, first aid boxes, bags, bren gun mag rack, map board, bullet-proof glass drivers blocks, to name a few ..... etc, etc Belly armour available but not fitted. For some reason or other the KI-Gas system is not connected. Two years on, and only 50 or so miles clocked and everything is still in excellent order. . I bought the Dingo after regretting selling F48582 many years ago. Little did I realise that I have also aged and the getting up, in and out is no longer as easy as it used to be. (Give me my M151 MUTT any day for ease and comfort of driving !) To sum it up, you would be hard pressed to find find a nicer Dingo. It will require on going maintenance, being 76 years old but is an excellent example of the marque. Based S.Wales - 12 miles from Severn Bridge. e-mail enquiries to: Barrie@marcherlords.co.uk
  5. For Sale. M416 trailer in very, very good condition. The data plate indicates it was manufactured in December 1965 and issued later that month. It is complete with rubberised canvas cover and frame to raise the centre of the canvas to stop water pooling. Several years ago the tub was taken off the chassis and everything was cleaned and painted, the underside of the tub with ‘Waxoyl’ chassis paint. There is no rust other than a few spots of light surface rust where the paint has been worn inside the tub by camping equipment. There are lights fitted to the trailer which need re-wiring. Tyres are good condition 700x16 bar grips. The hand-brake and brakes work as they should. The trailer is always garaged. The only reason I’m selling is that I don’t use it anymore and need the room for another vehicle (!) Priced at a very reasonable - £700.00 (ovno) – Collected from South Wales. btrichards@hotmail.com 07889 434921

    All, A few more from Lulworth ... ... Believe I took these in 2010 ... ... And a couple of pictures of a gearbox (?) lying on the side of the public Right of Way ... ... And some 'bits', again on the side of the public ROW ... ...
  12. Steve, Google ... ... SCR-536 or BC-611, 'Handie Talkie'. There are several companies selling reproduction ones which are ideal for display without going to the expense of an original.
