I recently bought an Austin Champ 1/4 ton truck from a guy I had ironically met back in 1987 and had lost contact with until now.
It is chassis number 1624, engine number 3079. It had a Base Overhaul on April 1961 from B269 (Henlys at Weston Super Mare) where it seems a large number of vehicles went to get repaired/overhauled.
It somehow ended in Cairns, Queensland around the 1970's and eventually found its way in NSW. I will be interested in tracing its history, as it appears in original condition. The Base Overhaul would have apparently made it "as new' and the tacho reset to 0.
It has now been dismantled, and I am hoping to bring it down to Sydney in about 3 months time.
