Default Kevin Purcell RIP

Sadly, the MV community has lost another stalwart in Kevin Purcell. I first met Kevin in 1976 during my jeep scrounging raids into NSW. Kevin helped me out with a MB chassis and two tubs . He was using Blitz's in the bush on his parents property at Yaven creek, near Adelong , at the time he had a nice jeep and a Humber FV Truck in his collection. Only recently he returned by post a hammer I had left behind back in 1976 !
1940 cab 11 C8
1940 Morris-Commercial PU
1941 Morris-Commercial CS8
1940 Chev. 15cwt GS Van ( Aust.)
1942-45 Jeep salad
