A documented import from New Zealand, arrived in Baltimore Harbor in September 2003 as a truck cab variant. Some minor repairs were made at this time. It was sold to a NC resident in 2004 and a restoration was performed and converted to a soft-top variant. All metal parts were galvanized, or replaced with galvanized parts, body repainted, complete drivetrain rebuild was performed, as well as a front disc brake kit installed. Current ownership since 2016 included many repairs and upgrades as well. In 2021 the following repairs were made: NOS canvas top recently re-stitched, new suspension and shocks installed, clutch master cylinder replaced, new rear stub axles, front and rear differential rebuilt, and engine valve springs replaced. All records exist from arrival in North America documenting the rebuild. The truck has successfully navigated the OHV area of the Uwharrie Forest several times as well as a few trips to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.
Some evidence remains of previous modifications or additions such as air fittings; paint in overall good condition with a few scuffs from use; with tow bar and accessories needed for towing; no heater is installed; wipers do not operate; a later fuse block is added to the dash; small tear to passenger seat; no other apparent concerns.
