Re: 1960 Single Cab

A little more comedy trailer manoeuvres and we covered it over for the night and went inside for a fabulous lamb dinner, followed by a choice of rhubarb crumble or apple crumble, I had both with custard and was stuffed. A few beers, a fire outside and it was well past midnight when we got to bed. A ...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

We then got the SC on the trailer and I took a few more photos and took a good look around, it’s going to need some work but I know it’ll be worth it.

Re: 1960 Single Cab

With the SC outside we started to give Tony a hand, he’d built a Dovecote and had fitted the body of it but couldn’t lift the roof, it took 5 of us and we still only just managed it. 027B23D8-D4F7-44EA-A87A-82EE84307BC4.jpeg Tony has some amazing skills, it fitted first time, no trouble. So we set a...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

Amanda had organised lunch, beef burgers and we were set to not be hungry again all weekend! I’d arranged to give Tony a hand with a few things while we were there, I’d brought new fuel lines, filter & pipe clips to replace all the pipes on his bus as well as do a service, so plugs, oil & filter, bu...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

It’s soon Saturday morning and we’re heading for the ferry, the sun is shining despite the forecast and the sea looks calm. 8465ED9E-ECC1-49CF-9A05-896F8E08CBD7.jpeg 3 and 1/2 hours later we get to Dublin. We decide to go through the city rather than take the tunnel and pull up at a set of traffic l...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

April 2018 rolls around and I spot a post on Facebook, Tony saying "those who know me will know what I have, if you are interested feel free to message me or wait for the adverts”, I couldn’t wait and I messaged Tony reminding him how I coveted that SC and if there was any chance he was selling that...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

So fast forward through autumn/winter 2017 and me and Nige Allister (nige1171) decide to import and upgrade a VW Brasilia to have a bit of fun and take to the DTA in Birmingham in October, unfortunately it arrived the week after so that bubble was burst, we decided to aim for Ninove and managed to g...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

I met up with Tony and Manda at many SSVC events and kept in touch regularly, I’ve tried to pass on the kindness they’ve shown me by helping people out where I can. When Tony told me he was off to Ireland and moving on some of his stash I asked if the SC was available, the answer was probably no, th...

Re: 1960 Single Cab

So August 2013 is where my part of the story starts, we had just returned from a roadtrip around France in the bus and the engine had given up on the last stretch, I had managed to limp it home but it was toast. So I posted a thread on here asking if anyone had an engine for sale and a message appea...

1960 Single Cab

Welcome to the resto thread of my 1960 RHD Single Cab Pickup. I have been extremely lucky to prise this away from Tony C and I hope I can do justice to his toil in getting hold of her. So here’s the story, in 2006 Tony heard a rumour of the SC being owned by a local coal merchant, it took until 2008...
