Almost Chris. Standard type 1 beam, except for the little strengthening gussets where the bump stop arms meet the shock tower. Type 1 trailing arms. Special type 2 like king pin assemblies with type 1 link pins and bushes (no bearings like the later type 2). Bushed king pins like the pre 54 type 2 (pictured), but not the same. Steering arm is at the top like the pre 54, later type 2s are at the bottom. The stub axles are the smaller (I think after 64) type 2 with the smaller bearing. The brakes are the last of the type 2 drums, 64 to 69 style. Type 3 steering box and pitman arm to take the larger tie rod end tapers that type 2 and 3 had. The king pin assembly is unique to Country Buggy. I saw a set a while back that had been modified to take roller type 2 link pins. Bit of work but it can be done.

Mine also has a steel bar approx 12mm dia accross the front like a sway bar shouldn't that be a part of it also I would have thought the 2 strengthing bars that bolt onto the bottom bar back to the main pan would also be a part of it , don't know what you call them but Bill will know .Arty

Arty,
Yes- I would agree those beam strengthening bars should be there for a complete unit. Maybe they were sold separately.
