I expect the whole project was engineered for a very specific outcome.

Going many slow. With very torque.

This link has video of the New Zealand war effort.


Wrecked and damaged trucks and jeeps, salvaged from the war zones in the Pacifc, are reconditioned in New Zealand motor assembly factories. Story of Allied Co-operation, the United States Army and the New Zealand Motor Industry transformed a supply of combat vehicles in the South Pacific. The restoration of these used vehicles was carried out at Ford Motors, Seaview, Wellington. General Motors rebuilt 2.5 ton trucks, New Zealand was used for replacements where required. Todd Motors plant handled 3/4 ton weapon carriers, all plants were subjected to procedures and scrutiny before being handed over to Automotive Reclamation Section. 3000 vehicles were restored and returned to the Pacific War Zone.

NZ link with something I never heard of. Didn't even know they had an auto industry.
Looks like they did a good job. Sort of like hospitals fixing up soldiers for return to battle.

I doubt they do now, even the auto industry in Australia is shutting down.:(

From Wikipedia:
"New Zealand no longer assembles passenger cars."

Fun, fun, fun... until somebody loses a eye.

Seems a little expensive for what you get. That old timey money was worth more. $149 for some tube held together by bolts and two bucket seats and a windscreen?

Gravdigr 06-20-2018 02:03 PM

Well, the bench seat model was a little cheaper, but it came with a column shift, so...:neutral:

Making damn sure it won't happen again...

Gravdigr 06-27-2018 02:25 PM

What exactly am I looking at there? I get the wrenches, so the bolts don't come loose...

Are the bolts passing through an exhaust manifold?

It's kinda brilliant. Sorta.

Also: That person's safety-wiring technique looks to be lacking.:p:

xoxoxoBruce 06-27-2018 07:28 PM

Don't know, looks like an exhaust manifold but there appears to be shit under it like it's being used for a motor mount or supporting a turbo or something.
