Here is an 11 year old Bushtracker:
Unlike other builders, Bushtracker was designed and is built not with the current replacement time theory of "Planned Obsolescence" of modern Industry...

We really do try and build them with to last a Lifetime...

Here is a well cared for one now going on 11 years old, in for Service, a shining example of why they hold their value or increase in value...







Bump Stops show little wear, so it has not been overloaded. Pivot blocks have been replaced at some time...



So, 11 years old, worn out? No, if it is cared for, it is just worn in... Wink



Regards, Steven Gibbs, Bushtracker

So sad to see her go. We will be buying another one in the near future after the new baby has arrived.

To see how well this van has held together for a 11 year old van, it was still in better condition than some brand new (other model) vans out there.

Good job to everyone involved over the years.

Built to last (outlast)

Hello Friends,


Here is another Gem, from the 90's, in great condition. Having done most of the west from the Gibb River Road, Cape Leveaque (sp?), all kinds of places in W.A. that are a bit of tough going and it is in here for Service now.

I love to see these old ones still going strong with the second Owners...



Well cared for, I think they can keep on going indefinitely... Wink
