Another project to play with

Post #1 by topkit » Sat Aug 11, 2018 9:42 pm

My 88 3cx went about seven weeks ago and i have been trying to gind a half decent replacement which has duly turned up. This on is a very late 96 buiild Ford 655D Turbo it has only got 4600 hours on the clock, It's been on a self build then light duties for the last 10 years, I gave it a good clean including inside the cab, Got all the lights, Wipers working so a little bit of paintwork and it should look nice. If anyone has any buckets suitable for this machine i would be very interestead, 45mm pins width between brackets 205mm.

They always remind of an up to date Whitlock Dinkum Digger :)

On a second look I guess it lacks 4in1 and extenda. Would that be unusual for that era?
