Wow; Seems Cheap considering there are only about 50 of these out there. I would want at least $45,000 USD for mine. Takes a crew to drive one. Oddly another one in Oregon, USA was advertised for $72,000 USD in MVPA magazine.   Newc in Oregon

Agreed, but was the turret not an Alvis product or is that just another rumour?

I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen that written down anywhere.

Just found this on the Army Guide site (http://www.army-guide.com/eng/product967.html):-

The Fox has now been phased out of service with the British Army with some of the turrets removed and fitted on to Alvis Scorpion CVR(T)s which have had their turrets removed. These vehicles are then known as the Sabre.

AND

A small number of Fox turrets were fitted on FV432 full tracked armoured personnel carriers.

Perhaps Brightwells were confused because:-

All of the welded aluminium turrets for the Fox light armoured car were manufactured by Alvis Vehicles.

Or maybe because the Wikipedia page incorrectly says they were built by Alvis?

Anyone can write anything they like on the internet, fake news and all that...
