its origionally a furgoncino  ardea van that unfortunatly some vandall chopped the back off to make into a pickup, the cab has been made too short as its chopped right on th b post and flat sheet steel welded in from 1 side to the other making it impossible for the seats to go back far enough for a driver over 5ft tall . i've just bought it from ron francis who had it from edd rudler, edd bought it from italy i believe about 10 yrs ago, he had all the structural welding done (nicely) and the wings /running boards shot blasted then sold to ron. i'm undecided what too do with it yet as i need to look at it properly 1st, i have the rear section of a morris minor cab which looks as though it will modify to fit and replace the flat steel thats been put in "and allow the seats to go back!" at the moment i'm thinking of scrapping whats left of the van body " real shame" repairing the cab and building a replica pickup body that looks as it would of had if it were origionally a pickup, ron has a genuine ardea pickup thats not forsale but the rear body is fairly simple to reproduce and looks so much better

I thought it looked familiar I had a look at it at Ed & Ades premises about 9 years ago & had thoughts of buying it, that lasted about 30 seconds Grin

What a result !!  You've now got a PROPER job on your hands and so won't have to strip and repaint/rebuild perfectly good Integrales to keep those hands busy  Roll Eyes

The bad news is in the background to the second picture - looks like Ron's yet to find a home for the A*fa that - in insane moments - has been something of a temptation.  As if I haven't got a lifetime's worth of stuff queued up already...
