    No mate lol. Been to busy to even look at it, plus the weather has been shit, so not fancied being outside to much.

    The green one would just be a summer run around as I hate driving modern shit

    The green car is a Ford Maverick, Blue pickup is a C10 Stepside (same as the black one which is a C10 Fleetside)

    Driving LHD isnt hard at all, especially if its Automatic, but the farm trucks are bigger than what they look in the pics! I have a pic of the green/white F100 parked next to the sport somewhere

    So possibly less than a hundred miles a tank!

    will have a similar range as a Caddy, but will cost you twice as much to fill it as they had a 20 gallon tank, some even had dual tanks so could hold up to 40 gallons

    I think a Caddy tank is around 45-50ltrs (9-10 gallons) iirc

    A friend of mine has a very nice 69 camero that he has recently finished restoring. Here is a photo of it next to my caddy:

    Its not easy when back in the 50s & 60s every model was changed complete every year so the manufacturers could out do each other, even in the 70s models were changed every two or three years!

    Then on top of that GM owned Chevy, GMC, Buick & Cadillac, so you may have got 4 similar cars with different trim etc.

    But that what makes them so unique, as there is so much to choose from. I still see stuff and think wtf is that!

    Heres a perfect example

    1956 Ford F100

    VS

    a rare 1956 Mercury M100

    My contact in California has a 56 (most desirable year of all the mid 50s ford trucks as it has a wrap around windscreen)

    No engine and box in it though
