There's lots of pictures all over the forum, in the 'Owners Gallery' but mostly in the 'Events' section.

As for dates, the best guesstimate I have at the moment, from evidence I've gathered is, they started production in 1959, but not 'mass' production until 1966 when they fitted a different chassis and made some slight modifications.

And ran through to 1975, then they became Ansfolds till 1980.

I've looked through some photos but not all of them say what year they are I've seen some with different shaped roofs etc

As a rule, the majority are all Portafolds and they have fins on the roofs. The ones with the smooth roofs are the Anfolds and they were built from 1976-1980.
