First post on here, and I dont like jumping in just for info. So here is a bit of background.
I was working in Bougainville as a Stock Inspector back in the 70,s when I found this Forward Control Land Rover down the bottom end near Buin.
My wife and I rescued it for a slab of SP beer and towed it back to Kieta on an A frame behind my old diesel wagon.
We got the 6 cyl going and used it for work then when I finished my contract in 1980 we took it to NZ. NZ did not work out so we moved to the Sunshine Coast in Qld
Australia. There I fitted a Perkins 6-247 and used it towing a skidsteer on a semi trailer.
In the 90,s I gave it a refit with a 4BD1 and an LT95 gearbox. I also fitted Salisbury axles front and back with Maxidrive difflocks. and a camper back.
Tried for pics but I cant on first post. So more later.
