Glenn Swallow:"All I know of its history is that she came from france in 2014. She was brought back only because there was spare room on a low loader. She was brought by a man who runs a vehicle film hire company. I was told she is in the back drop of the newly made mad from uncle film set in rome in the 50's. I have not seen the film so i cannot verify this. I brought her around 6 weeks ago(feb-march 2015) and she was located near portsmouth."

The restoration reveals panzergrey paint. The AHN has a 70 year old mechanical flaw. The hydraulic brakesystem was new than. Parts are rare. Glenn has decided to paint it a camouflage on yellow colour, with a dark grey undercoat.
