    Lot of work if you want to restore it back to factory condition, but not a lot if you just want to make it work. Looks like a good starting project as it appears to have most bits. Noticed it is missing the cylinder head inspection covers and the battery box lid. - Can be bought in Europe if required.

    Hi Reenen,

    Good to see someone else in the same 'boat' as me.

    I have a '62 SWB in storage, in a somewhat worse condition than yours, waiting for some attention (and some funding!)

    These vehicles are worthwhile to restore, I am glad to see another one being saved.

    Van

    Carnarvon is very remote. Google it - and you will see it is in the middle of our outback. I would be very surprised to find a scamster there, especially one selling haflinger engines!

    I am not aware of any members of this forum who could go and look for you either.

    Andrew, do not be to sure about a small town. I once exposed a scamster in Nababeep. He claimed to have his business in the main street and all I did was to contact the local hotel. They confirmed that no such business existed.

    The ".. . . . . good running condition. Fit and go" part does worry me a bit.

    That's the bit which made me ask, Why does he have a running engine not in a Haflinger? I have sent him a message asking for pictures, so we'll see what comes back.

    Ok agreed, but heck, a haflinger engine in Carnarvon?? I need to meet this boyo.

    Btw Dawie, now you mention Nababeep - you ever been from Grootdrink to Lekkersing? There is a pub next door to me where you can.

    :):)

    I need no pub for Grootdrink om te Lekker sing! o_O

    (For our foreigner readers: Grootdrink = Bulk drinking and Lekkersing = Enjoyable singing. Both are actual place names)
