Willerby Vogue to be restored.

Hi Stuart & Myra Edwards in Tynemouth, North East England here.
Have just purchased a restoration project.
Already christened "Russell" ( the Wilderness Explorer character from "UP")
A 1957 Willerby Vogue 3092B, still rolling but in need of TLC.
Should keep me out of the pub for a while.
Trust my learning curve may be of some help to others.
Stuart

Hi, I'm in Newcastle so I would love to see this Willerby one day.

If you need any fiberglass supplies (though of course you will want fibreglass supplies), East Coast Fibreglass in South Shields is one of the best sources in Britain: East Coast Fibreglass Supplies - Leading UK composites supplier. Next day delivery.

Wow, what a gorgeous body style. This should be a really awesome little fiberglass trailer when you're all finished!

Not so small (by UK standards that is)

Thanks Ellpea in CA, it is a little "Buck Rogers" is it not!
Length is 14ft 7 inches
Width 6ft 8 inches
Weight is approx 1900 lbs

A little wider than the 1955 series 1 Land Rover I intend to use as tow vehicle.
Cheers.
Stuart

I would love to restore one of those Willerby's, someone should take a mold off of one, hint, hint Too bad that the door is on the "wrong side" for us on this side of the ocean.
