I then rebuilt the transmission from parts of two transmissions. Only had one useable clutch and it is like new, a bit of luck there.

This is the newest photo of the truck, taken yesterday, thanks for all of the encouraging words everybody. Charley

I started on the sheet metal.

my interest in matadors is really confined to those used by the british army this was brought about while collecting the records of the british armys vehicles wartime and postwar while the curator of army transport l was asked by the AEC PRESERVATION SOCIETY if they could use the records to compile a record and also they at that time had access to the AEC archives the information was subjected to verification by all interested parties to ensure that is as accurate as possible

the first attachment is from the records the second shows the contract VM 11373 and it contained chassis numbers

08535292 to 08536579

Hello Charley

How is the restoration progressing?

One and probably both chassis numbers you list went to Australia post war from Murphy of Leicester UK who exported about 200 ex army vehicles.
