    Hi all
    I have just joined this forum after reading about the above thread on the jeep. I have recently bought an Austin Champ here in Sydney and noticed that in April 1961, it had a base overhaul at B269, which I have been told is Weston-super-Mare. It ended up here in Australia and finally to me! I will be interested in also finding out about its history, as my previous Champ in 1987 was sadly sold and all records were lost with it. I won't let that happen again!
    Regards

    Simon

    Hi Simon, welcome to the forum!

    Please do a thread about your Champ. I would like to see it and I am sure others would too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    For those Interested in Weston-Super-Mare Henlys Wartime vehicle Maintenance section:

    Western IMPS are trying to arrange a last visit to Weston Aerodrome.
    It does not look hopeful as the the land is rumoured to have been passed over to the Housing Contractors who have yet to be contacted for permission to access the Aerodrome and Hangers which are now small industrial Units.

    However on June 9 & 10 2012 Western IMPS are holding a Forties Weekend at a local National Trust Estate - Tyntesfield.

    If any forties period vehicle owners would like to join Western IMPS for the Forties Weekend at Tyntesfield and combine it with a visit to the Weston-Super-Mare Aerodrome please contact the Area Secretary: James Shopland.

    The National Trust stipulates that all vehicle participating in the Tyntesfield Forties Weekend need pre-registering.

    There are Discounted Dinner/ Dance tickets for Exhibitors, camping is available.

    Thought I would post a little update.

    I have spent the last two days working on my Jeep. As well as the mechanical work I wanted to undertake, it was time for a respray. Having looked at the front floor, which had been patched a few times, I have decided to bite the bullet and replace this with a new front floor pan. So the Jeep is now stripped down and the body nearly ready to come off.

    Cheers, Ade.
