Yes that looks correct on register, I also own 30 - 164, so only 5 apart.

Cheers

Hi Pete,

I have 2 of the FFR's fully restored and complete except the radio gear, they have the trays and radio mounts but the next step is to get 1 x radio set in each, I think they are the PRC77.

Thanks, I was  pretty happy with the vehicle, it has a army hard top which would not have been original but it is an army one so assume it was put on in service.

I got it off ebay for a cheap price but the guy said the engine is no good, then when I asked he said it turns over he just can't get a spark, so it should be an easy fix - I hope.

It also has a Bamford which which I was going to put on another one but now it's home I want to keep this as is and bring back too life.

My wife was happy with a couple then acouple more it became a collection now she's talking obsession, but I am not convinced of that yet! :-)

Cheers
Scott

Hello Scott,
Hard top was probably fitted in service to keep a bit of weather out, maybe spent some of its time in cold places, looks good anyway.
