UPDATE ON SAMMY
Sammy, our 1951 Simplex Diesel, has been undergoing extensive renovation works. We are now pleased to report that work is reaching it's final stages and we hope to have Sammy in service this summer after many years absence.
All the body panels have been completely stripped, primed with a zinc primer and undercoated. Some of the team were on hand on Sunday 10th March to put all the main body panels back into place and they are now ready for their two topcoats.
The starter motor had to be completely overhauled and is now fully functioning. All we are now waiting for is the water pump to be refitted and the weights to be mounted.
Watch this space for further updates.
