WW1 Thornycroft restoration

Recommended Posts

As I was not inclined to pay Photobucket the $1,000 a year ransom for my photos they have blurred and watermarked them all. I do have backups and will try to replace them but this will take me an awful long time to complete. I will start with the Peerless ones. A downside is that it is now impossible to get the captions to match up, but I am sure that you will all work this out. If you need to see any photo specifically please let me know and I will treat that one as a priority.

Thanks

As we are about to make a start on the Peerless chassis we had to make room in the shed. A friend has kindly offered us storage for the Thornycroft so in the most horrendously wet day Steve loaded it up and took it to its new home.  Sad to see it go.

It was a truly filthy day and everything was soaked. The lorry started OK though and driving it the last mile was quite exciting! It is now safely stored and we are onto the next project.

From its new home we put the canvas up and then took it out for a drive. It went very well and we managed to stop for a few photos. We then tucked it away in a shed tall enough so we dont have to take the canvas down. A very successful day.

She looks fantastic! wouldn't Mike J have been pleased!!

Is that a United Africa Co Sentinel next to her in her new home?  I remember them on the docks in Birkenhead in the mid to late '50s.   It was worth putting up with my parents' shopping trips just to see them!!
