New Zealand MV Nut


Recommended Posts



I have been a registered member for some time, but have not spent the time to do the Introductions.


I'm Alex, and we (our vehicles belong to our whole family) have had a Chev C8ax for a number of years (10 so far :-() and progress is a little slow.


We have now also acquired an MWC Bedford, that also needs some love, and my wife has a Corgi Folding Bike.


By day I am the ICT Manager for a Freight Forward and Logistics company in Christchurch NZ, and part of the reason for the slow restorations is there are two many hobbies, and not enough day.


We have 3 kids as well, so don't want to miss out on the quality time there as well, and I am still working on a way to blend all of the time together.


I have a few service rifles as well, and help out a friend with his artillery, as well as some re-enacting at local airshows, and combined with family, and a love of cycling and hunting and fishing, there is never enough time for everything, but we will get there :-)


My Father has an MB Jeep (Early Marines Jeep) and he has been rebuilding for over 30 years, so I have got some time before I have taken longer than him :-)


I am now in collecting mode for the MW, as have no motor or box, and bonnet panels are absent as well, along with a lack of the right hand fuel tank, and seats :-(


I look forward to catching up with some fellow Bedford owners, for information in the future, and hopefully will be able to show some progress in the not to distant future.

I couldn't get the tank at this stage, as it's still being used on the farm I got the truck from, but have been promised the tank when they are finished with it :)
