Should also mention that there are a number of enthusiasts in Australia, whom i'm sure would be keen to check it out for you depending on how close they are to you. (I believe Australia is a rather large island)  ;D ;D

I'm probably not the right person to answer your question, and I'm sure you'll get more comments, but I would say not much heritage value, sentimental value might be higher.  To me it looks like a 1970's era SR1, but I could be wrong.  As I'm sure others will tell you, please post some photo's of the serial plate.  History can usually be determined by the serial number.  Also, location will make a difference to the value.

Can't say I am sorry.  The guy has surely been captured and sent back to the funny farm from which he escaped some time ago

Best of luck yourself, or is it a case of the more prepared one is, the more luck you'll have.  Sounds like you are well prepared and will be running your butte off helping out the neighbours.

Yip, here in SA we were privy to receiving boatloads of Listers.  We were after all a colony.  All government departments had them as backup.  Forestry had loads for their remote locations.  Just about every 2nd farmer had a few.  Unfortunately, people have realised their value, so not easy to find anymore, but they are there, hiding in disused barns, pump houses, factories.  Also, almost every old building site dumpster had a Lister in it.

Interesting.  So what engine do you have, 2.2 or 2.4 petrol, or 2.4 diesel?  Very good forum for everything Hilux is www.hilux4x4.co.za
Mine is a 4Y (2.2 petrol) with 340K Kms.  Agree, with maintenance they last forever.  In South Africa they call them "kan nie dood nie" which translates to "cannot kill".  Even Jeremy Clarkson couldn't kill one after pushing it off a 5 or 6 story building. 
Sorry to hijack your Bamford thread.

Tell me more about your Hilux.  I too have a Hilux, 1990 model.  In Europe they were branded as a VW Taro.  A few weeks ago I suspected a blown head gasket, so took it apart last weekend to have a look.  Blown between # 3 & 4 cylinders, so head is now with the engineers'  Hopefully by next week it'll be up and running again. Not bad for a 32 year old van.

Hi VP, good to hear that your perseverance has finally paid off, and a free engine to boot.  Also looking forward to pictures and your normal  detailed write up.  Looks like being a policeman in Portugal is a good life  ;D

No man VP.  That plastic tanks looks terrible, and definitely does not suit the period.  Can you not find an old lawnmower or tractor tank made from metal, which would look a lot more "original"

Thanks Ade, it's not a problem.  I have got so used to it, I just click "log in" without typing anything in the boxes the 1st time, then fill them in after the errror message.  Works fine for me.  Could easily be tech ignorance on my side, but doesn't bother me enough to try to solve.

Hi Ade,

Thanks for all the hard work on the forum. I am quite happy as it is and also access via the "show unread posts".  The one thing I find though, and don't know if it's only me, is that I have to log in twice each time.  The first time gives me an incorrect password message.
