  1. Well, the dots are definitely joined up now. thanks Citroman - that is very interesting and useful information. Regards, Mark.
  2. Thank you Richard, your sleuth skills are to be applauded. I love it when all the dots join up - so, it would seem that this was indeed used in Normandy, captured and pressed into post war civilian service. Thanks again, regards, Mark.
  3. Thank you Citroman, I will start some research based on that. All I know for sure is that this wS built in Italy. like many Italian Army vehicles, there is a good chance it was commandeered by the Germans, and entirely possible it found its way to France, as it has original ‘Normandy 3 colour Camo’ paint. The only other thing I know is that it was sold at auction in the early 70’s, and came to the U.K. So, a good chance it is French.
  4. Can anyone on here tell me if this registration number is Italian Army? 731AJ - 14
  5. Thanks for posting those wonderful pictures - a very rare and interesting vehicle indeed. my own project just took a quantum leap forward, after 2 years of searching and placing of adverts, I just acquired an engine from San Marino.
  6. I am very pleased to hear that - and staying in Spain is wonderful news. well done on an excellent job - you should be proud. Do you have a contact for the museum? I have some SCW memorabilia, that they may like. thank you,
  7. Agree with my learned friend Enigma - very nice job. You are to be applauded on your speedy work - well done indeed. look forward to more updates, thanks for sharing.
  8. Had a break from ‘playing with old army trucks’ - life has a habit of getting in the way of hobbies sometimes. The 166 has been preserved, parts have been collected, and I am almost ready to start the restoration.
  9. In what way do you consider the price “ridiculous” - too much, or too little?
  10. Hi Enigma, How are you feller? Here are a couple pictures. It also have engine, hood, radiator, windshield and some body parts. Any help with a positive identification of the type, would be greatly appreciated. regards, mark.
  11. Well, two years later - I just got it home. The seller was very helpful, honest and generous. He was genuinely happy that it had gone to a good home. Thanks to everyone on this thread that helped with opinions and information. any more contributions of information would be greatly appreciated. It is four wheel steer!
  12. Good post, very insightful, sums up nicely the dilemma of making an offer on something with an indeterminate value. I don't have many vehicles in my collection, I don't 'deal' in vehicles - I build houses, and if I wanted to make money then I would just build another house and sell it - more profit in it. I very rarely buy a vehicle, and even more rarely sell one. I never seek to buy a vehicle and only considered this because it was offered to me - I certainly wasn't looking for one. The last vehicle I sold was a GPW, and the only reason I sold it was because I had another one, and the guy wanting to buy it had spent a year trying to buy one, was looking at a load of junk and I really didn't want to see him stiffed so sold him mine at a fair price. Anyway, I like this one, would like to do it up, and would like to rally it. I figure as far as value is concerned it would 'break even' at best, maybe even 'lose' money in the short term but perhaps 'make a bit' in the long. A couple grand is a fair bid in my opinion.
  13. Wow! You Sir, are a star - thank you. Mark.
