Vanguard Pickup Restoration

 Just had a good look at the site,  very good.


I am restoring , with the help of a friend who  did his motor apprenticeship at a Maidstone  Standard dealer , a Phase 1A Ex RAF Pick up. This is owned by John Shearman. The  Registration  Number is  321 FXO. It has been barn stored for 20 years + 


Having renewed brake pipes including master cylinder, king pins and rubber suspension bushes.


Now on  the engine, a total rebuild, including  new piston rings. The body seems fair for its age, but some welding required.


Hope the pictures are of interest.
