  1. Looks good, you could bring it along when complete to a club evening, or off roading next BBQ. Keep posting your progress. Regards Clive
  2. Great clip, especially as it's my mk1 steel bodied Antar being driven by Roger, does anybody know when it was filmed? I disagree with Rogers comment that it's not fun to drive, as I think it's bloody great fun.
  3. I think it's Leconfield, Headquarters Defence School of Transport, near Beverley As I understand a gate guard is a unused piece of equipment used as a static display near to and forming a symbolic display of "guarding" the main entrance to a barracks.
  4. It's intended to be installed as a gate guardian at the Beverly school of transport, they are selling of the mechanicals to find the refurbishment. No doubt some useful spares for someone, or purchase now and wait for the disposal of the gate guardian!!
  5. Hi I have a "prototype diesel Saracen" converted in the late 80's by Alvis ? I purchased it a couple of years back and it is used off and on road. It is fitted with a Perkins turbo phaser, it retains the original pre-select gearbox system and cruises on the road at 45mph. It has "air over hydraulic" bakes that are great, the steering is power assisted via a hydraulic pump engine driven, the GCP is also air assisted. The internals/controls were never finished with no lighting or engine dials, only a start switch and oil pressure light ! Regards Clive

I have purchased two over the last couple of years A Cent ARV for a scrap value of £2750, 3 years ago (£60 / ton). It had been outsite, however had 36 miles since base overhaul. I have run the winch for loading, however no go on the main engine due to lack of spark. Also an Cent BARV from Withams at tender for £4,600 last year, does turn over however carb linkage siezed. I was quoted £200 a tonne for weighbridge weight 3 months ago, puts the ARV at £9k and t
  7. Good Morning Clive

    I will contact Mike early next week and let him know who's coming. Have spoken to Eddie and he hasn't got a date from Terry.

Perhaps we could do that next Friday if opportunity arrises?

  8. Went ahead a bought the Humber ! Yes she is well filled with filler and showers rust when going over a bump ! A novel approach to the sill repair with expanding foam ! She did perform without any problems on the test drive, 249 miles (Flint to Ipswich) and 25 gallons of petrol. A very good ride averaging 47/48 mph, in-all 9 uneventfull hours. The re-fuelling was a little challenging as one tank was out of commisson and the other just flowed out of the top !! Should still look gook alongside the mk1 and sqirt tho'. Dave, I will have to talk to Phil and re-assure him that "to
