Nice looking rig. A little elbow grease, and you're good to go. Any more pics/specs

Yeah it looks ok, or did, is stripped down fair bit now - dog box & aircond is off. was pulling road trains up till last yr, was used in northern aust mostly then worked its way down south. Had 73' dash put in it in mid 70's as well as leather lining etc to modernize it i guess. The quadbox was taken out and replaced with a D1070 ten speed, is easier to drive but will put quad back in soon. Also had chassis lengthened in 70's, has hydraulics and long range tanks. Motor is very good, has power steering (leaking). Plenty of rust in cabin but doable. Will repaint in yellow.

cheers ellis

Not bad at all. Can you explain exactly what a Flintstone is?

Yeah give it a go, the early R models with the steel butterfly bonnets looked completely different to the later more modern plastic front ends. someone must of come up with the nickname (australia only maybe) to differentiate between the later models. Is more basic/rugged looking - guessing similar to how the cartoon "the flintstones" portrayed things, more prehistoric maybe? hope that helps, sure theres someone else out there with a slant on it.
