Hi, Well here we go again. I was offered to take ownership of this great old van which has been previously seen on this forum. The previous owners are moving and new i was keen so scraped up some dollars and her she is.
Arriving on the back of forum member Bugsy's truck
Getting to know Gidget the Globetrotter and Mayballene the Mayfair.
Moved Penelope P Propert to the other end of the shed so she would not be scared.
This van has been discussed on this forum before and would seem to be a scaled up copy of plans in Modern Mechanix 1938. Suspension is lopsided from years on sitting on unlevel ground. Will have to get some clues from members who have 1930's vans as to interior finishes,styles etc. Wish me luck Cruz
Hi Cruz. We`re not trying to replicate a particular Beverley WA caravan museum are we? Didn`t think so. LOL. Well you`ve certainly got another fine van to add to your collection. Good luck with the reno. cheers gordon

I REMEMBER THIS LITTLE JIGGER FROM ACOUPLA YEARS AGO . IT WAS STUCK ON A SLOPE IN A TIGHT BACKYARD AND UNDER A HOUSE'S DECK FROM MEMORY. I CANT REMEMBER WHO IT WAS THAT RESCUED IT BUT THEY HAD TO DO IT TOUCH BY WINCHING IT UP AN EMBANKMENT NEXT TO THE HOUSE . GREAT PHOTO'S WERE ALSO TAKEN AND SHOWN HERE. IT'S A DETERMINED LITTLE VAN NOT TO DIE .
THIS VAN REMINDS ME OF A TIMBER VERSION OF "MARVIN" .
