Het die outjie gekry. Nou om dit loopbaar te kry.
Lot of work if you want to restore it back to factory condition, but not a lot if you just want to make it work. Looks like a good starting project as it appears to have most bits. Noticed it is missing the cylinder head inspection covers and the battery box lid. - Can be bought in Europe if required.
I am jealous! Where did you get it?
Here is an engine for you:
All the best Reneen
Where did you manage to locate that Haflinger.?? Please continue to post so we can follow your progress...

Good to see someone else in the same 'boat' as me.
I have a '62 SWB in storage, in a somewhat worse condition than yours, waiting for some attention (and some funding!)
These vehicles are worthwhile to restore, I am glad to see another one being saved.
Do people think this is genuine?
If it is, I see about buying it.
Carnarvon is very remote. Google it - and you will see it is in the middle of our outback. I would be very surprised to find a scamster there, especially one selling haflinger engines!
I am not aware of any members of this forum who could go and look for you either.
Andrew, do not be to sure about a small town. I once exposed a scamster in Nababeep. He claimed to have his business in the main street and all I did was to contact the local hotel. They confirmed that no such business existed.
The ".. . . . . good running condition. Fit and go" part does worry me a bit.
That's the bit which made me ask, Why does he have a running engine not in a Haflinger? I have sent him a message asking for pictures, so we'll see what comes back.
Ok agreed, but heck, a haflinger engine in Carnarvon?? I need to meet this boyo.
Btw Dawie, now you mention Nababeep - you ever been from Grootdrink to Lekkersing? There is a pub next door to me where you can.
I need no pub for Grootdrink om te Lekker sing!
(For our foreigner readers: Grootdrink = Bulk drinking and Lekkersing = Enjoyable singing. Both are actual place names)
He sold it today to someone, whilst I was waiting for him to send me pictures....
