Here we have my little 86" that I bought back in 2006 as a "Barn Find" to restore. Sadly never got to it, so am selling her.
Apparently was acquired by the RAF for use on an airbase near Royston. Has original factory green, but was then painted in RAF blue. Used around base, then had hardtop made and fitted to use it as a spotting vehicle. It was painted yellow for when it was used "off road" (on the grass) It was painted this colour to stop the pilots running into it!
Not sure about this part of the story, but apparently hardtop side are made from a Blenheim airoplane, but not sure!
This is a serious restoration project, but definately worth doing.
