Alley Cat joins Majestic Vanners!

Post  Rhino on Sat 12 Mar 2011, 9:28 pm

Hey All,

Most of you would now know that Alley Cat was sold recently , well I have brought the old girl and she was delivered today.
The Van is in way better condition than I remember. There has been very little work on this van since 85. It is far from perfect condition but with a little TLC she will come-up a treat. All the chrome work under the car is in excellent condition no pitting or rust at all. The body needs a few repairs but nothing huge. The interior is a bit of a basket case but even that will not be a big deal. The engine bay needs some work but thats my specialty I have a knack for hiding things. The worst thing is the chassis it looks like Stevie Wonder painted it while on crack, considering the amount of work this van has had done and to the standard it is done the chassis is a disgrace. It looks like it was painted with a brush, there was no attempt to clean it at all Question .. I have some big plans for the Cat but am trying to keep it as original as possible.

Cheers
Rhino.


The Cats home for the last 5 years


1st time out of the garage for 2 years


6 inchs of dust and grime


Got her on the truck with no problems


After a quick tub at home NO polish just some soap and water


Sitting a bit higher than some of the pictures from 84. will probably knock an inch out of it i think




Got to find a replacement for the the old Meteor front.


The Chrome under the Van will polish up arsom








I need to give the engine bay a good clean out it will not look like this for long
got some big plans for under here Shocked

Its a good feeling that we now have 2 former Australian Top Vans within the group. We just need to acquire the rest, like Jade and Street Legal, and then the crown is ours.
