    You've got a lot of work there! What were they trying to do with the doors on the side and extra 'stuff'?

    Dont forget that I have a complete spare hull that you could build up using all your parts except the hull.

    something very odd about that vehicle, wonder where it came from? Doubt it was ex- British army as it has an Aviation Jersey rebuild engine fitted.

    The color suggested UN, the doors on the side looked like an adaption to carry a stretcher. On the canadiansoldiers.com website I found the following:
    "Canada purchased 124 Ferret Mark I Scout Cars in 1954, and used them until 1981. None of the Canadian vehicles had turrets. They were used not only in Canada but also overseas, in West Germany and on Cyprus, for example. Final disposition was:
    • 23 used as range targets
    • 4 to museums
    • 74 sold surplus via CADC (Crown Assets Disposal Corporation)
    • 1 converted to a funeral vehicle
    • 10 sold as a second batch of surplus
    • 10 converted to monuments
    • 1 scrapped (in 1975)
    • 1 unknown"

      I wonder if yours was the one converted to a funeral vehicle?

      Where are you in FL? I'm in Fort Myers on the west coast. If you need measurements there is a ferret in the military history museum in Kissimee, just south of Orlando.

    Yes im actually an hour from you im in clewiston fl. As for the doors im not sure if the guy before me fabricated them to make it easier to get into or what the deal is with it. Not too much on the history other than it was canadian and has the b60 engine in it. I have thousands of pictures i just have to go through them. In the process of stripping the inside so i can do a full restore of the interior.

    How do you recognise that Richard? Aviation Jersey were in the 1970's Alvis Fighting Vehicle main dealear. There was a major row in Parliment about a 'British' company refurbishing Metor engines from Rhodesian Saracens. The other side of the factory in St Aubins made electric wheelchairs. Never could decide if that was salving conciense, or cashing in at both ends.
