Morris C8 FAT Harvey Frost Crane?

Recommended Posts

Just taken delivery of a 1943 Morris FAT. Had been stored since 1975 - prior to that had been used in a garage for recovery purposes (hence the crane).

 

If anyone is interested in the crane please contact me as I want to restore it to its original FAT setup (will need be seeking advice from the forum!!)

 

Think crane is probably Harvey Frost but cannot find any markings on it.

 

Cheers

What a find that is Martin. It looks in great condition really for its age, although saying that it has been inside for 36 years!

 

Look forward to following the restoration.

That must be one of the best unrestored gun tractors left. Well done in finding it.

 

It looks like there's a big hole where the fuel tank filler should be. If you're missing some tanks, there's some on ebay at the moment (though not sure if they are for the 'beetle-back' body or the No.5 body).

 

Best wishes.
