It is a very early long wheel base Halflinger...

£500 for the seized engine, chassis and some (very few) body panels

Engines are easy - we know a man with quite a few and some tuning mods

Note the portal axles

Lovely Haflinger, a quite broken one went for silly money on ebay recently.

James has been after one for ages, but at auction a tidy one is 15k, so when this one came up in London On Sea, it was a no brainer

It's going to be a double cab, road legal, but useful for accessing the farm in the winter.

Would you share progress please ? 😊

No worries.

Interestingly, the engine is the same as the post '71 Invacar

Need to find out if the gearbox is the same

If you call rear suspension of a VW Beetle or from Tatra truck "Modern"... 🤣

I was poking fun at those moaning about the independent suspension of the new defender. Tongue firmly in cheek

With a Vit-yaz for when it rains :)

Those Haflingers are great little things , they used to be in trials years back alongside series Land Rovers and CJ7's and bread van Diahatsu's .  I'm sure they spent most of the time on 3 or even 2 wheels - often the back 2 . I have had a chance to drive one , again years back . Very different to heavy things like an 80" :)

Keep us updated nonimouse

cheers

Gear box piccies

Mostly good

However reverse is mullered. Cost from "UK Half-pint bits at a huge price' 130 English pounds

If we get 100 made up, 50 quid each

Ten pence piece for reference
