Hi Hughdeany and Twocutekelpies,
It’s a very different Millard isn’t it with the knife edge styling below the windows, the big bulkheads above the windows and the window layout?
I hear what you say Hughdeany, but I think I will still argue for a later build date - say around 1965. My reasoning is based on the following:
Up until around 1964 Millard stuck with the coloured panels around the van at window level. Only in 1965 did they seem to adopt the (large) coloured flashes on the sides, and then in 1967 they moved to the white acrylic finish with a coloured bottom half. So to me the flashes suggest 1965/66.
The knife edge styling below the front and rear windows is similar to the styling used by Sapphire and others around 1965.
The early 60’s Millards seem to have a much more staid styling (but in fact that’s true of most Millards we’ve see, so I’m not sure that indicates anything! )
Hello All, I have recently purached a Millard M Deluxe 21ft caravan. I am going to restore and get back up to speed from top to bottom. Wondering if anyone can give me an idea of age from the Millard build number welded on the draw bar, M3760? Thank you in advance
Hi and welcome Lee Curtis, According to Shelley Regans compilation of chassis numbers on her Millard and York fb site your van is a 1965 model. You can find out more in the “ down history lane section” on here and on the fb sites. Hope this helps Cheers hughdeany
