A challenge enters the workshop - The SUMB truck
06/09/2014
 

Don't mix beer, enthusiasm and ebay.. it always ends in tears.. well not always??

A recent auction ended and I am now the proud owner of a SUMB lorry - that to all appearances it has spent the last few years of its life in a jungle somewhere (or at the bottom of a lake?)

I will run a blog on the vehicle as we work through it, and hopefully you will see it transformed (?)

 

First thing is first and that will be a power wash to get the vegetation off and see what we have left after that!

Its a 1962 (?) v8 petrol - so thirsty, no idea of its history except it has sat the last 7 years doing nothing.  I have a feeling we may need to look at brakes, clutch and fuel first!

If any one has any leads on parts for these let me know 07962319339 as we will need a few me-thinks.

Thanks
