  1. here is the 110" 3/4 ton bonneted control in its current position in the Dunsfold Collection, nice find Wally , please bear me in mind if you have a chance to copy it. philip
  2. Wally Great stuff there. The Lightweight spec looks interesting. I have the FVRDE spec but that looks earlier than the one I have. Would be happy to pay for a copy.
  3. Thanks for the reply's so far. On checking the VIN number its a CKD (COMPLETELY KNOCKED DOWN) kit for Rest of the world so it could have been assembled in N.Z. ? Its interesting that date into service is 1986 the 109" was replaced by the 110" in 1983 so they must have taken a long time to build.
  4. The present camo paint was done by the NZ guy who imported it into the U.K. 10 years ago. It is ex NZ. I have the army docs for it it’s army reg was RM6340 and it’s looking more like it was a deep bronze green with a satin Finnish? It was a reserve vehicle in service hence it’s nice rust free condition, must be quite rare in the U.K.
  5. I have started a tidy up on a Ex New Zealand Army Land Rover Stage 1 V8 from the 1980s. I believe these were CKD build from Australia but I cant find any reference for the original green. Its like a matt Deep bronze green but not quite, Its not Forrest green as far as I can tell. The vehicle has been painted in NATO camo and looks wrong. Are any of our NZ friends able to find a code before I go down the matching road. Thanks.
  6. Sorry to report that a early member of the MVCG and AWDC and friend Richard Anstey passed away the other day. He was always on the show scene in his Morris MRA1 and later on in his Pig and Portuguese Land Rover. I have details of a service if anyone is interested. 01483 200567 Philip.

      Oh crikey poor old Richard. I last spoke to him several times a year ago to tell him of the loss of John Newton. He was grateful that I let him know so was able to attend John's funeral which he found very moving as they had been good friends for many years.

      I well remember Richard's Pig, Rosie as he called it, that he bought from Roy Elvis. I also remember his MRA1 when he took it to a show at Aldershot Army Museum,  I recall a senior officer lifted the canvas to peer in at the back. Richard hurriedly apologised as there was an armchair & table in the back that detracted from its authenticity. The officer said no apology was needed it was kitted out just as he would wish in the field!

      I think Richard worked as a gardener for the Aldershot council, something that he relished as it gave him to great opportunities to observe all manner of military vehicles passing by.

  7. I am sorry to inform you all of the passing of Brian at 1.30 Sunday. He was one of the first band of brothers to collect military vehicles and display them back in the mid 1960s. He will be missed by his boys Chris and Philip and staff at Dunsfold. He Has been active with all vehicles with tyres and tracks since the 1960s, Founded Dunsfold Land Rovers and off course the Dunsfold Collection which is now a registered charity. He stopped driving his assortment of Rovers, cars, Tractors and motorcycles 5 years ago and was wheelchair bound (with knobbly tyres) but still had a great tail to tell. I
  8. I Found a very rare Metric adjustable in the shed, but it would not fit any of the fixings on my .50 Cal!
  9. Do you need any Wheel Rims? £10.00 each if you want them 22" Collect from Dunsfold Good luck with the rebuild.
  10. I remember loading a Stalwart up a loading ramp not knowing it had a broken middle drive shaft on one side. When the point of balance came in it slewed sideways!. Thankfully it was on a concrete ramp and not single ramps. Very exciting, also had no brakes! A lucky escape and no one hurt except my pride. Ever since then any more 601 series vehicles i loaded i always drove a little and noted the filler plug positions. Just shows how easy it is to have a accident.
  11. You could just scrap the Mutt and let a real 4x4 have the 106mm :wow:
  12. I Am looking for a De Act 106mm for my latest purchase a 90" Defender. Any leads would be great Philip
