Hello Ferg

No I did not build it, I purchased her last year with the intention of renovating. I drove it for a couple of months and I love it !!!

I have had to disassemble it completely and rebuild from the ground up as most of the wooden bodywork was bad the chassis needed a paint job and most of the running gear needed oil seals, bearings and ball joints.
I have used ply wood in its rebuild the original was 1966 Block board which was in a very bad state.
I have just finished cutting new aluminium panels so I am hoping to have it back on the road at the end of this month.
I made several alterations to leg room and windscreen height to suit me better.

It sounds like you have had a similar rebuild..

No.
Not a rebuild.
I built an Arrow back in the mid-80s.
I still have photos of it in the build!

Sadly I have no idea where it went after it was sold to a bloke called Ray from New Malden.....

Where are you OXE 744F??
