LOOKING GREAT Matt.
I hear we will see you at Shannon's on the weekend, not in Dobby though! LOL.

Yep, keen to be there, but probably shouldn't be in Dobby. ;)
:D

He is legal at 4.1 tonnes gross. The cab & chassis weighs 1330kg, so he can carry 2770kg including the tray. I reckon the tray will be well under 770kg, so a full 2 tonne! More than 2 Belletts!
I will get a weigh ticket once he is done to be sure.
:D Matt.

thats quite a bit for the motor size. Guess there won't be any high speed interstate dashes..... Perfect though to setup to carry a Bellett only.

Exactly right mate! I measured the tray once, there is 100mm behind the back wheel of a sedan if I load it front first.
There is another thing. Dobby has had his motor and gearbox replaced at some stage with a 1500 2R Corona motor. Originally he had a G201 2000 motor, so yeah, even less power. But its all set up pretty well, so it will be ok for now.

Heres the good news though. Brother Gary bought his '64 first-car-in-Sydney sedan from Canberra and with it came a heap of spares, including used motors. One of them happened to be a G201. Amazing! So he gave it to me. I just have to find a 'box (and probably a column shift Bellett one will do) and I can put him back to original.
:D Matt.

Tray is off for rust conversion (now done) and painting. The chassis will get the same treatment.

Matt do you want to build a "hotrod " ?
I picked up a motor to put in a Wasp - it didn't fit without many modifications - all too hard .
If you are doing up a G201 motor , how about using this one ?
And then I remembered the truck motor has a lowered carby manifold to get it under the seat - maybe it won't fit . - Craig

Wooo, twin carbs! They look like Chev Luv carbs, with the vacuum secondary. Where did you find this? In a Bellell? Yeah, hot rod!

Yeah, the motor I have does have the lowered manifold, but uses an oil bath air filter with steel induction tube. There is a rubber tube to the carb which has been modified to suit the 2R, thankfully just with gaffa tape. It has some problem, it turns about 350 degrees then stops, and tye same when I turn it backwards. Hopefully just a stuck valve, but it will get to that later, I just want to get him on the road.

Is your motor a runner?
Thanks, Matt.
