Not a new find.

Now here’s one you won’t have seen before. We thought this was a new find, but further research revealed that it had been discovered by András Zboray back in 2004. However it’s location has remained a fairly well guarded secret and it was only by chance that we stumbled across it. Not only is it fairly undamaged, but it also has quite a lot of original paint still on it. One can only speculate as to why it has been overturned. Possibly to make removal of the axles easier - either to repair another truck at the time, or to liberate them for another use after the war. Anyway. What we are sure of is that it is 1942 Ford 4x4 chassis number C01 05159, if that means anything to anyone.


  1. More great photos! These chassis all seem so well stripped - lights, seats, instruments.....or are these just scattered around, and now buried under the sand?
    Incidentally, I like the pantone chart...no explorer should be without one!

  2. I suspect everything easily removed was nicked long ago Affer. Shame, but thats the way it is. We had a half hearted look.

  3. Shame, it looks so lost there in the sand. Diane
