field modified DC3


Recommended Posts

I thought this was the same DC3 bus that I came across in 1992, a photo attached, but not so sure if it is the same one now I compare it. I was on the Variety Club Bash as a member of the REME team taking part. The DC3 in my photo was entered in the rally by members of the Royal Australian Navy. We travelled from Sydney across to Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, mostly on bush tracks and stony desert. Needless to say, the DC3 always lumbered in to the overnight stops well after all the others. It was built on an old Chevrolet truck chassis and the drivers position was what you might call quaint and dashboard was a bit of board with random gauges and switches, looked like an after thought. Brings back good memories when I searched out the photo.


regards, Richard
