This car was originally in Masons Black & Shell. It was owned by a Lt Col in the Royal Tank Regiment.
The vehicle was taken overseas in 1953 as an embassy vehicle. It then went to Washington in 1956 & returned in 1958. It was then sold in Dorset in 1958.
The registration was changed to VTK 600.

The vehicle was purchased by the current owner in 1984.
