This is Clementine.



Clementine came with a horrible hand made Canopy.
Unloading in the evening after a ride of seven hours.

Hi,

Nice project, Ex Swiss car, 1954 with genuine 1954 Truckcab, without the hoodgutters!
Did this one have a black chassis or blue chassis from new?

Hi
Yes, its a 1954 dispatched to switzerland on 10th Aug 54.
It has a black chassis. The 55spare chassis is also factory black painted.
Im happy to find the missing items. I buyed a set of NOS  D-lights, Lucas 489 lights and the black wiper motors.Yesterday i found two SE100 trafficators on Ebay.
Do you know, where the trafficators are located?I think they were at the truck cab behind the doors if factory fitted, but there are no drill holes.

Hi,

They are fitted on brackets bolted on the windscreen.

We have reproduced these in the past. and have some new sets currently made.

Welcome Marc
A very nice looking motor  and as the Houben Family have advised the trafficators attach to the windscreen frame with brackets, I can see the holes in the pictures.

As you have been told the windscreen is the correct place.


I think you have probably seen pictures of truck cabs with the trafficators fitted behind the doors and I have also seen such photographs. It was quite a sensible place to fit them on a working vehicle, dry and less vulnerable than on the windscreen, but I've never actually seen an actual vehicle. It would seem to be a modification carried out after the vehicle left the factory, so not really original.

Thanks for the answers.
Yes i saw pics with trafficators behind the doors.
The hole in the wind screen frame ive identified as holes for the traffi brackets too, but i wasnt sure wether it is the genuine frame..
@HoubenI think ive to visit you.I remember, ive been to your workshop a few years ago, when youve sold a Aeroparts winch to me.
