Produced from May 1959 through to 1964 this is a most impressive model. Really heavy, you do feel you’re getting value for your money and that it is well up to whatever army tasks you might want to throw at it!
This one is a marvellous original 1118 with UK insignia and has the solid base. Some models have an open element below the rear section.
I cannot really find fault with this model. It has the often missing or broken hook, the screens are all clear, no marks on the bumper and the canopy is straight and clean without rust. There is even the original spare wheel and tyre present. The Allied insignia is present front and rear. The paint surface has aged but it is genuinely all original and a fine example.
