1977 bank job getaway vehicle

Recommended Posts

From

day dot I determined this one is staying dead stock standard.  As the kray brothers would have used as a getaway motahh. 

Hasnt run in atleast 2 years.  Has no brakes.  Last reg is march 98. 

I did some snooping via facebook amd the old boy that had the van died in 2014. No kids or family to speak of. 

Aparently he used it to collect his produce in orchard.  And has always been barn stored. Hence the not being rust fucked

So i lovingly removed the plugs and gently turned it over.  

Got some fresh plugs in.  

Checked the oil was still oil

And put a battery on

after changing battery and adding another battery coz ive got 3 and they were all dead. It spins. Wouldnt fire so i gave the points a quick tickle and added mor ether to the carby

it fires!!!!!!!!

Wont run buy itself but for 3 seconds at a time if you feed carby it runs

And tank had a fair amount in it.  Think the flexi hose that connects filler to tank has perished to buggery

Let tank dry out over night and gave it a good clean out today.  Plugged it all back together and put it back in.   

 

Confirmed the filler hose was trash.  Spose 40 years up to ya bits in leaded petrol will do that.   

Have got 2 new flexy joiners coming and 2ltr of brake fluid.   

Could it be a running driving van this weekend?

guess we will have to wait for next week on..... im a transit get me out of gear
