Q67GDB is in the Duxford collection, chassis number 8132 from contract 7443. It used to be mine many years ago with a petrol engine in it, when the head gasket blew I decided to put a Meadows diesel in it, never got round to it, sold the whole lot to a friend of mine, he did the engine conversion ran it for a couple of years. He sold it to Bernie Jones who imediatly swapped it with Duxford for a Militant MK1 6X6 Gun Tractor. In april last year it was outside sheeted up near the play pen.

"Who immediately swapped it" .....not a very happy affair.

 

This Militant Gun Tractor was subsequently cut in half and exported to Bongoland for timber extraction. The body ended up on the Militant Gun Tractor that Richard Grosvenor recently sold.

Didn't know that about the Militant. Guessing that happened in Kibworth... But at least my old Explorer is safe at Duxford.

You've guessed correctly. Ironically, Bernie's gun tractor, 37 BM 19, is still being described as a "surviver" on militantgraham's wondrous website. A more appropriate description might be "this very rare and extremely original AEC, well known on the rally circuit and thought to be safely in preservation was cut in half and exported to work in timber extraction".

That means you've got my doors ! And quite a few other bits a I gave to Bernie while he was restoring this lorry. Was it just the rear bogie and may be the transfer box that ended up in Bongoland ? Do you still have the cab with the two oil filters mounted on the front ?

The gas axe man had been very busy before i saw what was left ,what normally happens is a complete militant is loaded up with the remains of several less fortunate examples i bought the front of the chassis complete with engine gearbox everything else went on the banana boat or to that great motorway in the sky!:cry:

TV not very good tonight, so I've been looking through the Explorer gallery for my latest Explorer. Very, very sad I know..... but I did notice that it is the chassis no. and army reg no. before Crocs. Does that make them brothers or sisters? 01 BD 97 7364, and 01 BD 98 7365.

 

Off to get medication for my condition tomorrow. 10 litres of red oxide and 10 litres of deep bronze green!!!!!!!!

That's interesting Joe, the records I have say all six in contract 9870 where registered with NGY numbers, so yours must have been re registered for some reason.

 

That means four out of six known, any pictures for comparison?
