Thornycroft restoration pushing along

Craig from NTI Truck Assist and Don from National Transport Insurance (pictured) continue to be a great help in pushing along the restoration of the 1926 Thornycroft A2.

Our major HVIA 50th anniversary legacy project is being readied for launch at the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show.

Graham Lockie from Dulux Refinish has been preparing the paint samples and now the radiator, chassis and a bunch of other components have made their way from SkillsTech TAFE Queensland for sand blasting and painting by Eric and his team to PJ’s Custom Spray Painting.

Keep an eye on the project here 

Or better still get involved! Contact Noelene Bradley at HVIA – we’re still keen on your help and/or sponsorship.
