Hello from South Africa

Hi All, Yes there are some j series vehicles in South Africa. I have owned my 1972 J 2000 Gladiator since 1996 and it has undergone quite a few changes since then. Unfortunately i broke the rear end some 10 or 12 years ago and it stood outside under a tree since then. I am trying to convince myself to fix the glad again hence my browsing around and finding this forum. I hope i will be able to ask a few questions and hopefully receive some well informed answers. I am able to give some information (history) on J series in South Africa sould anyone be interested.

Thanks
Jakes

Hi,
Sure i am interested by SA history for the j-trucks
I know that they began the assembly of jtrucks and wagoneers in the sixties , all with 6 cylinders engines, i think it was in Pretoria or the neighborhood ?
I don't know when the production was discontinued and i don't have production figures

Was your J2000 assembled/built in SA ?
Do you have a SA ID plate with a specific number ?
Thanks
Guillaume

Hi Guillaume,
Yes my J 2000 was assembled in SA by Preator Assemblers. Jeeps at the time,60's and 70's, were imported as knockdown kits and assembled locally. The plant later became a BMW manufacturing facility as it is today still.
Regards

I somehow feel a bit stupid about the pics. Why not just copy and paste?
