Just a quick update, Emailed Bobcat and they have been incredibly helpfull and interested in this machine. It was delivered to it's first owner C. HR Heilson in Denmark, though they don't have an exact date for this it was between 13-12-1966 when No.1152 was shipped to Germany and 14-01-1967 when No.1154 was delivered to Liverpool.
Bobcat's chief demonstrator has even requested me to send them some photo's of this machine for their interest!
cheers morgan
