Carman, Lynx is Rick Cove, owner of a most interesting collection of good stuff.

Rick will be familiar to people from the 'Year of' series.

Here's a pic with our own Jiffrey taken at Bandiana.

Thanks Carman and Keith. I need your guidance to attach photos as what I thought was the correct way didn't work.

Much modified F15 cab 12 at Yea on the way home from Corowa, owned by a VMVC member and in daily use as a farm vehicle. What mods can you pick? One is the Chev diff but many others are visable in this photo.

Default Mods

Hi Rick,
Great pic's of a great event, thanks.
As for mods on the cab 12, is it on a Toyota chassis with home made tray? the front bumper looks a little light, 1/4 windows with wind up side windows. Part of the cab looks original.
How was your trip home?

It is an FC as the side lights on the front are FC. The FE had small, seperate from grill round side light/indicators.

My second car was a real nice FC Holden in two tone blue. Wish I still had it along with the early Cab 11 Ford CMP with no vents I once owned as well.

Cheers

Of course you're correct and I've just had a rebuke this end. What I should have said is the hood ornament is FE.

The suicide doors have been reversed with what looks like Series 3 Land Rover door hinges.
The grill section on the front of the bonnet looks a little strange, but I can't pick what's wrong with it. Has it been extended for an engine swap or something?

Post My two bob's

Being Ganmain's foremost authority on #12 cabs, here's my picks.
Panel work foward of the windscreen seems too 'flat', as does the back of, and position of, the bonnet (hood). The windscreen seems to be manufactured or maybe just the vertical panel immediatley below the 'screen is an addition to compensate for the flat panel work. "A" Pillars are not CMP. Doors swing the wrong way & have a 1/4 glass fitted. (I miss "quarter vents"!). The doors and indeed the entire cab seems bigger. There is extra metal work between the doors & front paneling. However there is little room between the front panel work & the bumper. Therefore no room for the chassis mounted tow hooks.
The bonnet seems to have been extended to perhaps accomodate a longer engine or engine maybe mounted in a futher foward position.? And are the chassis rails wider?
All in all I would suggest it is Australia's best looking Land Cruiser.
How'd I go?
HH

Default Hi Colin

Colin took me for a ride in the Chev while I interviewed him. It's a wonderful vehicle and a lot of fun to ride in with the top down.

Hi Rick

Can you, or any body else give me any iinformation on the body of the truck in the picture with the staff car. Is this a post war body or is it a varriation on a military body?

Cheers
