A few years ago , I thought I would try and contact the previous owners by looking in the phone book of the Gisborne area (east coast nz) and found the first four owners were still at the same addresses. This is a photo I managed to get off the first owners taken during 1963.Image

All still at the same address :shock:

Thats awesome getting a ol pic of your wagon 8)

We have a couple of pictures of our home being built hanging in the entrance of our house.
Our house and the house next door, were built by two brothers, one for each,
One of the brothers was still living next door when we bought.

Everyone ask's, how did you get these pictures?

Cheers
Jeff

This is last lock down. Pushed the bikes aside and bought the wagon to the front of the shed.

I think you need more dash surrounds Daz, if that it what's hanging in the background, you may not have enough :lol:

Hi Guy's, The only advantage of taking so long to restore a car is that you can accumulate a lot of nos parts. Have managed to find four new doors, a front suspension beam, windscreen, genuine rubbers ,hood lining plus much much more. I have dismantled thirteen of these cars over the years when I use to pay $100.00 or a crate of beer for them so have a lot of second hand parts as well. Recently I managed to acquire the stolen and burnt out remains of the EK sedan some of you may have seen on fb. I have Drilled all the spot welds ,separated the panels and removed the rust for some one in the future. I just hate seeing waste. More pics to follow. Regards Daz.
