Re: Traveller Pick Up project

Will post photos next week, l have replaced the traveller floor which was rotten beyond repair 4 layers in places , l have put in a pick up floor which is flat and now sits on the chassis flat and level , unlike the traveller floor which slopes. Obviously the floor finishes short at the rear but l i...

Traveller Pick Up project

Hi All, Don’t know if this is of interest but bought this off eBay as a project sold as good condition pickup. Anyway no good looking back so got me a traveller cab and also very luckily a new chassis. I have plenty of time, hopefully, and lots of enthusiasm to turn this into a well restored but not...

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

Hi Westcountryman I’m not left with much of my eBay good condition cab but nothing a few panels can’t properly correct, I like your interpretation and sure it serves you well , you’re correct the cab will fit fine on the chassis, however because the bed might look a little stubby or if extended to f...

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

No problem Les , I really think I am going to struggle to get a true pick up in the short term or ideally just a cab so l am going to progress the mongrel version.
Such a shame you can’t get just a roof, bulk head and floor ,
All the best Dai

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

Lots of questions to answer...... hopefully the pick up won’t be a worthless mongrel when finished and I will do something better than a knocked up flatbed. The vehicle has a V5 and is down as a pick up . I am fully prepared to get whatever final inspection is necessary on the completed project to b...

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

I think that is a likely possibility Many Minors so by reason of it now sitting on the pu Chassis legs it still has the same support from a design point just needs a suitable method of fixing down. Midget I assume traveller and pu were all the same at the front end so would I be right in saying that...

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

Does the vehicle have a plate showing the chassis number? If it starts MAT then it used to be a Traveller, MAU a pickup and MAV a van. Hi Simmitc has chasis so that part defo van or pick up, The issue is the cab which given the door width at 36 inches seems to suggest a traveller which l am happy t...

Re: Traveller Cab pick up chasis

Thanks all, with sincere apologies the doors are 36 inches wide, I also include a photo showing the detail at the rear of cab point , which possibly suggests the cab has been cut through. The bulkhead is also a poor fit. How would the cab of the vehicle been secured to the front chasis / monocoque l...

Traveller Cab pick up chasis

Please excuse lack of knowledge. Have been told my pick up cab is actually a traveller front appreciate they didn’t have a full chasis but am I right in saying the traveller front cab was on legs that went to monocoque at the rear end. Why I ask is the pick up I have just purchased the cab sits on t...
