Hi All,

It's been a while since I've posted here, but at long last I've begun the process of stripping and restoring my old UF-10 Panel Truck. This is a rare model as it was built in Britain by Dodge Brothers Britain Ltd. US chassis and running gear, English bodywork. Supposedly only 1 of 8 ever built and as far as I know the only survivor.

I'm doing the whole restoration on video now and I've attached a link to the playlist of videos below. I am aiming to release a video a week if I can keep up with it all!

Feel free to share this link with anyone you like. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!

Cheers!

Hi Henry,
Very nice!
I'm probably the biggest fan of the panel truck on this side of the pond so I'm very anxious to follow along. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to seeing your progress...

Can you please send me the data for the truck so I can enter it into the database?
in a PM if you'd like...
It helps to put the chronological picture together for production and export processes.
Does your tag say "Mortlake Road, Kew, Surrey"?
Also, please show or send a photo of the tag if you have one you can share.

Need to know:
Wheelbase
Engine number
Serial number
Build date

Thank you Henry
Regards
David

Me again, just to update you all that I've now released episode 4! The strip down is well underway. I'm a little further ahead in real time, so now It's just a chassis on 4 wheels, but you'll have to wait for episode 6 to see that happen!

A link to the full playlist below.

David - I've sent you a PM. Thanks for the reply!

Thanks everyone for all the support!
