    oh ok that is a bit of a shock then as that van is missing parts from the motor and the side cover of the motor is missing so the valves are rusted over now and it has water in the oil pan

    Hi I have recently shipped my E83W pickup truck over from NZ and I am in the process of restoring it. My front windscreen frame has rusted out and I am looking for another one, Do you know anyone that might have one in good condition or where I can get one made. Cheers Bazz57

    I have just acquired a NZ pickup also, but it will stay there and be used when I regularly visit. It too needs a windscreen frame, I have been told that one solution is to join a couple of Prefect frames to make the larger Fordson frame.
    Good luck
