61 RHD devon

Post by BlastingDiePast » Fri Feb 19, 2016 9:09 pm

Early RHD Devon Splitscreen.

In for everything we can do, she needs major chassis work, full front and side plus some roof work.

Fits in nicely

Its a '61 Caravette. January or March I believe from memory but I'll check on that one.
The red is 'red oxide' applied by me! Original colours are Turkis and white which I'm sticking with.

Bought off here 8 years ago and used regularly for the first 4 but been off road since. Got nicked too not long after getting her but thankfully got her back.

Started to try to restore myself but realised it was way beyond me, but I know it's in the right hands now, especially after going to Will's yesterday and seeing his set up and some of the work he's got going on there.

Got none of the original interior but on the look out if anyone knows of one for sale!!

Here's some pics of how she used to look....(hope this works)

Sparky75 on here owns a 61 interior that would be correct for this bus.

I doubt he'll sell but most things have a price even if it's a ridiculous one!

We DICS can tell you what the 62 Devon interior should look like..
You could probably pick up all the pieces bit by bit...
Clymo has had quite a collection of pieces in his efforts to obtain a complete set for his March 62.
I bought a 61 front cupboard from him which he bought from jonnolly.

Image

I will be using this as a template to make a modified cupboard for my March 62 Devonette.
I then will pass this forwards to..

Someone..

Will be while yet...

Though...

LOL..

As will be your needs...

Sorry got the date completely wrong,
First registered 18/09/1961
Color on log book is Turquoise/Grey
Engine Size 1200cc

To be honest when I bought the bus I was just after an early RHD and not too concerned about anything else, turns out I'm now landed it's a devon and what the original colour is. Would love to get a correct interior in there.............

Saw that set up and passed on it, too much work to many repro and damage bits to be of any good.

True...but some was OG..
The alternative is to seek each piece out in OG condition..
No longer easy..
OK a complete OG interior does come up..Will not be cheap...

Best luck searching..

In the real world we are not going to get a fully complete interior that does not need any work in six months, so I'm not fussed about spending too much time searching for it.
If one comes up then a deal will be done, if not then we'll get something that suits.
£500+ for bits of an interior that may well just end up being not used is no good to me/us and I'm not about to waste my or Keith's time on anything like that as we have quite a bit of work to do before an interior can be fitted anyway.

These interiors do come up at a price but..few and far between...

So if you remove the awning rail and decide not to fit it again...
I would like to buy..
LOL..
