Finally found, and pulled the trigger on, an M561 in Oz. working on getting it trucked up from southern pastures for my next R&R...

Anyone know now where I might acquire tractor canvas from, hopefully before the wet season...

We need pictures Spock, is it the white one? There are currently 6 goats in Aus as far as anyone can work out, 2 of which were converted to right hand drive. I just pulled the trigger on one also.

Okay we really need pics of the right hand drive version.

Been three import batches if I recall correctly.

About 8 came in to NSW with two then being re-exported to NZ and PNG.

Two I think came in to WA along with some tanks ex-middle East.

One private import to Melbourne.

I know where four are, have seen pics of another in rural NSW somewhere.

I got mine from Tassie, should be here in about a week and a half, it's coming to my place at Echuca. Mine is all original.

I know the bloke who did your conversion, if you'd like to speak to him PM me and I'll give you his number.

Are you military or fly in/fly out?

FIFO from WA

That'll make two in Echuca, one at Chanters winery in static display.

Pics as requested, no detail on the RHD conversion i'm afraid, these pics were provided by the previous owner.

Thanks for posting the pictures. Looks like the cab bows are complete, just need a cover, even has part of the door kit still installed.
