Hi Neil,
I'd say pretty fair chance it is! Nice to see it still around.
Thanks
Steve

Not the same one, if you look at the reflection in the mirror of the back end this one lacks the solid rear hammer form areas of the first picture posted.

there is a chance that the original buck has been restored/repaired. in the original picture you can see the infill between the stations

either way they are both impressive

Bucks are nice but I have a video of a guy making a Monaro quarter panel from sheet without one. Of course skills like that are very rare!

I know someone who has one of the wooden Porsche bucks. Replication of the original supposedly but there are a few differences. It was acquired from the people who made the ones for Porsche. Apparently there were two different styles available. Cost? If you have to ask -- you probably don't have an AMEX black card to pay for it nor the cost to FedEx Air to your home. I saw the work order and both of those statements are truths.
