Wow! What a great looking truck. Love the build up pictures and the countryside in the background. How old is it and how long did you spend restoring it. I really like the lower panel between the cab and the back wheel. Did you paint it or did a shop spray it.

ps Do you use it as a daily driver?

Thanks,yes it was a great place to do the build up,the view was great.the truck is a 1982 model HJ47 all original except for the loading bay which was replaced about 10 years ago.the weather in Madeira is not very gooy for these cars you must keep it in a garage,otherwise the rust will eat everything.I to a friend to spray it he is very good,he's done quite a few here on the island.
The truck was bought by my dad in South Africa new at the time,he said it was expensive at the time,15000 rands that in today's terms is about 1500 euros !!!!!
