New Acquisition

Post by Abes on Sat Apr 12 2014, 20:13

Well with the Amanco gone to a new home thought I would share what has been acquired to replace it in working clothes with a lot of original paint and decals still in place hopefully pick up in the next couple of days, link to vid of it running plus some pics below

it went to a better home matt, I wouldn't have the time - I just like to drool at them on here but if a small hit n miss restored came along I would be tempted.

Loving its character Abes - is this going to be an oily rag restoration?

Nothing needs to be done to this one in my opinion.

At last she's made it home, just need to give it a quick light rub over with an oily rag and she's ready for her first rally next weekend
