  1. An emotive topic... They who are without sin can only throw the first stone comes to mind! It's the classic trade off between authenticity, and reality, Original Pattern, and Original Parts: Original Renovated Vehicle (totally original parts) Original Restored Vehicle (parts replaced, but restored it's original state) Original Pattern Vehicle (original vehicle rebuilt to match a genuine vehicle) Replica Vehicle (built to match exactly a genuine vehicle, bar some 'swap over' parts) Look Alike Vehicle. (built from outset to only depict an original vehicle. T
  2. Then some heavy research is needed first, to establish what was built locally, and how to tell. not easy, but possible. how many churchill lines were there? and what were the years/numbers produced?
  3. The wasted cost of building a replica, you may as well find something genuine, and do a steady 'rolling' restoration on it. It's one of the interesting things I find in museums. finished stuff bores me a little lol. Have you considered a lottery grant, to assist in paying for an acquisition/ heavy recovery? A genuine local historical subject is always worthy of lottery funds
  4. Hello, there is a hulk of a churchill somewhere in kent still, not sure where though.
  5. The hubs look way too heavy for anything small on the road.. It's not an axle from some small loading or service vehicle? The gear ratio would be a big teller
  6. It's a kind of grudge project. My ex father in law owned it, and reckoned i'd never be able to do it.
  7. What you would call a basket case! But, a lovely project. At the moment, I'm going to build it with a simple GS body, until such a time when I can find out exactly what the body was. about a third of the work is the body and fittings.
  8. Hi tony B.. Mine is a Dennis, but I do have an interest in Rootes stuff, might be some that can be of use. Where are you?
  9. Hello, I am starting the restoration of a C4, and need any parts, even u/s parts for patterns, drawings, parts lists.
  10. Hello All. From Kent, I am the owner of a Morris C4 Radio truck. Looking for any parts / plans to assist it's restoration. Also a Dennis Fire Pump trailer, Royal Navy 109", and C8 FWD (chassis and parts)
