AEC Matador restoration part 2 (6 years later)


Recommended Posts

Brilliant!!  Bet it was interesting driving with only half a steering wheel. Looking forward to seeing how the restoration goes. 

Back body looks fairly complete, so at least you will have patterns to copy. Best make friends with a carpenter while you invent a new cab

Great stuff! What is the history of this one, if you don't mind me asking, former showland vehicle after demob?

It worked for The Showman Presland & Sons after demob.

 

todays task was lifting the body off, Mudguards are still relatively intact for a pattern and the body floor is mainly good still, just sides need new timber.

Not too much progress but all brake lines and cylinders taken off (every one undone) and swapping the rear winch rollers over off my spare chassis. Plan is to get it stripped down ready for sandblasting . TC
