Nice wagon.
That looks like Buller Grey. Was it a Premier wagon?

Old is good.

Well thanks David I'm retired now and I have promised my girl one for 20 years so I came good on the promise. No the original colour was all Fowlers Ivory as it is a149 HC standard station sedan. No chrome strips only one door lock on the passenger side, but it has genuine NASCO accessories on it a drivers side rear view mirror, a heater demister (no fan) inner pull door handles on the front doors, rear dust deflectors and tar babies near the wheel arches. From what I have found out it was stock and station agents car and all of them that were purchased by Elder's Goldsbrough Mort were the same. It only had 89 thousand miles on it as well.

just out of interest how many hours of effort do you estimate it took and what sort of budget did you need?

Andrew

I wouldn't know about hours Andrew I just worked on her most days form about 10 am until about 5 pm 7 days a week. I did have a couple of operations on my arm in there as I nearly cut my hand off in Feb 2016. The budget I would estimate somewhere between $5K to $8K I suppose but I did everything except the Upholstery and I only did one valve in the head but had it reconditioned but the 149HC was in excellent condition. I hope that answers you question.
