This is pretty sweet... The Series are the best trucks IMO

Do you know how many years the truck sat in that barn?

I wonder when it was imported. The info on the registration plates seems to confuse me. It say date of first reg was 1986, but I wonder if they really mean that was the last time it was registered??? Why wouldn't it have been registered earlier? Maybe it lived on a farm?

Congratulations on your Series 1 find - really glad you have chosen to restore it, there's not enough of them around and they are wonderful machines.

I bought my series 1 about 20 years ago in CA and was told it originally had come off a farm so hadn't been registered for a large gap of time - you can still make out a large number that was painted on the roof so I assume it was part of a fleet of vehicles... wonder if the two are related???

I have a good series 1 frame and fire wall for ya.
