The green Swed

Post by mohawk64 on Wed Dec 31, 2014 1:52 am

Merry New year to all :-) trying to put up a couple of pics to see if I can.
" />

Lowered apx 8 inches in rear, axel flip. not a lot of space left towards the flor, will be assisted by a pair of Classic HI-jackers



The one who seek will find,,, and i found some more rust,,,,hell



might as well build a new frame around the door,, 2 mm steel will do the trick.

and again marry new year.

The van, as the story tells, was used in the 60:s by a Company that traveld the South of Sweden and sold Tools, later Its been on a farm an finally It almost ended Its Days as a commersialsign on a strawberryfield for "Here You pick your strawberrys yourself" written in Swedish on it. According to the papers I found in It, Is been on the field sins 2005. and belive It, we tryed to start the engion "6 cylinder" and It started. Now Its getting a V8 318 from a 250 RAM Van 1989, 900 tans, disc brakes, flipt axels and, and, and........

the wheel studs will need to be replaced with longer ones.
also the existing ones are both left & right hand thread ,
the new ones would be all right handed, did you find the stud info ??

i keep the drums for now but will convert later to discs. When i bougth the van i got all the parts for the brakes to make them new, so i will take them. I lokked at your brake pattern for the calipers. I got a pair of mint porsche calipers an will try to get something arranged.

A-bombers meeting was in Backamo near Gteborg. I dont got pics my friend took a few.
