..just come across a 46 Chevvy Fleetmaster in a shop not far from me.
Its being built up , on an air ride system & is in very good , original condition.
The REAL hook is that its RHD , having been made for the South African market! Surprised Very Happy
..anyone know of any others in the UK?
( i will get some pics sometime soon Rolling Eyes )

Are you just informing us of it's existance or is it for sale?

I don't know any others in the UK, yeah it's pretty rare!! i know of a 40 like mine in Switzerland that's RHD, the guy is converting it to LHD and offered me the RHD parts but the way i see it is it left the factory LHD and LHD it will stay.

it'd be interesting to see some pics dude Smile

..its certainly NOT for sale at the moment; but i will keep an eye on it & await the day it is..
it appears to be in remarkable condition & has spent a great deal of its life in warm climes.
My concern was its rarity, as the guy was talking of converting it to LHD , in order to (re) open it up to US sale, in the future..
- will get some pics in the next few days & post for comment.. Smile

Would be a real shame to convert it to LHD, like i said i like them left as they left the factory. cant see it making a lot of difference if put for sale worldwide anyway, i'd have thought Japan was a much better market for a RHD yank than the US was for a LHD yank that's gotta be imported.

what's the paint like?
