Thanks for posting the picture, the line up looks fantastic (I only wish I could have been there to see it).

I think it is testement to how good these trucks are in that so many survive in relation to how many (or few) were built in the first place, when compaired with other wartime vehicle production numbers.

Along the lines of restoring Diamond T's I thought I would put a picture on of my DT 969. I don't think its been on the show circuit before and i've certainly never seen it previously. I got it about three weeks ago from near me in Somerset, the previous owner had it for about 27 years and did it up from a wreck, he took it right back to a chassis and did a great job. It only needs a few small jobs to finish and a new coat of paint but its all working and road legal. Its running a ford 6cyl turbo diesel and the back body seems to be a REME made british one but if anybody knows I would love to know more.

These photographs were taken at this years GDSF of the Diamond T's that attended the 70th anniversary get together at the event. The photographs were not taken by me as unfortunatly I could not attend, but are posted with the kind permission of the photographer Denis Newell, who is the son of a War vet who used to drive them in anger and who I had the privalage of meeting a few years ago.

I`ve got a Diamond T ballast box which is in the way, it was taken off an ex-italian army T.

It`s complete with tailgate but this has been backed into something and bent.

The ballast box itself is undamaged and would only need re-painting. stowage boxes are in good nick.

It doesn`t have a pendulum fitted.

i`d rather someone give me scrap value and use it rather than see it cut up.

Any takers??????????

I can get some photo`s if needed.
