I didn't know about the FV(Aust)13901 designation to the three prototype vehicles, I'll have to add that to the prototypes section of the history page. 

I just checked the 2 pages of information I wrote abotu the prototypes, and the information I had from the history of the acco book, and 40 years of army design match what Mike stated above.  I also realised that I never put a photo of the P3 prototype up either.  Nor referenced the History of the acco book.  Onto the to do list.

The winch was an US made Garwood,different from the later Olding,more like the WW2 Garwoods.The transfer case was a Rockwell,with a cast iron housing,also quite different from the later David Brown.They were very prone to rusting of the cab,which was pieced together from bits.And they had a four speed gearbox of the T15a type.The rear axle housing also had extension pieces to increase the track to equal the front.Regards John.
