Thursday

Earliest GPO van under restoration.

This is a long term restoration we have been working on for a period of time. It was a stage payment job which is nearing completion. It has been a full restoration, most panels have been replaced or repaired as the owner wanted to keep as much of the original van as was possible.
We are in the last stages of a full re-spray inside and out in the correct early GPO red.
This is the Oldest GPO Minor van, it has the 30th postal cab made, (these have differences to civilian cabs). Its the 2066th lcv cab...
