Due to resignations within the structure of the Club many functions cannot be completed, if you have contacted the Club for any reason please be patient and your query will be answered, at this time we are unable to pay bills or receive any money due to the bank account being frozen by the persons who have resigned and no signs of the situation abating, please keep looking in and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
I think the Dodge M43 Ambulance stays the same, but the truck (containing Bond and Oddjob) at the rear starts off as a Chevrolet before they enter the base, then to what I think is another Dodge M43 as they drive through the neutralized base, then to a Ford once they arrive at the depository. The "B" plate marks it 1964 and, given that the film was released in October '64, the only way it could have been a '65 model year car would be if Ford had supplied it. Some interesting background cars: Miami: Aerial view of Fontainebleau hotel, two delivery vans (one of them is a VW), a row of taxis, a white car which looks like a T-Bird, and varius other cars. Note all the "non-star" vehicles and you will see few front tags. All pics of the "star" vehicles are from the front or side.
It was also recently discovered that one of the people who resigned also wrote to the DVLA informing them that the club was to be disbanded asking for the club to be removed from the V765 dating and registration scheme, this action was a vicious vindictive act from a person who cannot accept that he no longer has the right to dictate what happens within the club.
The club has been reinstated into the V765 scheme and can and will assist anyone in retaining or applying for an age related Registration Number for their vehicle, if assistance if required for Registration or number Retention please use the CONTACT link for information.
Today, in 2003, the Lister-Petter company concentrates on diesel engines and generator sets, the shearing business having become a separate business which is fortunately also still located in Dursley.
This example of the Freedom range of engines, dating from the late 1950s or early 1960s, was once located at the Walley Bridge Gas Works.
