Hi, think that one went for breaking. But it may have been saved. In Germany, MUNGAs are almost as costly as jeeps! I know of one German chap who came to UK on holiday, just to buy a MUNGA and take it home on a trailer.

Problem with Mungas is that they are a dying breed. They were a too specialised vehicle. And there are not enough around to have new part manufacturing profitable...

 

This is the advantage of LAndrovers and Jeeps...

Yes, the club had ATE make hundreds of brake hoses a couple of years ago. it's just in UK, we don't think much of them. Someone is even making body panels in Germany, and VAG still support many spares as a matter of course.

Yes, this one is more or less just down the road from me! I have not seen it for many years, and it seems to have changed hands. Looks like the air cleaner is missing. It's ex-Dutch, and the last time I saw it was in reasonable condition.

It certainly looks correct for the German car club, not sure which period though, but looks to be the modern type . They have a website which can be translated to english.

Well despite the down pour today we decided to take the body off. The bolts holding it down were already off so we hooked a set of chains and hooks to it.

.As space was tight,we had to work round the trailers .We pulled the Munga under the hoist with the willys (the tow rope going under the trailer in the way,it was then hoisted up and after juggling it around the gear stick the body was finally balancing in mid air.

For the time being , we have put it on the top of the M416 trailer so we can still move it around until it goes to the blasters.

As can be seen in the pics, the body is in very good condition as is the chassis. (sun decided to come out when we had finished)......:coffee:

Hi, I will try and find some track rod ends. Brake master is rocking horse poo, but you can get a recon kit. The cost of posting the tow hook is about £40, so I will see if I can find a cheaper way to get it to you. I think the spare rad I have is servicable, just need to pressure test it.
