Hi Guys,
I have just bought a 1972 ex-RAF Lightweight and pick it up next week.



I intend to restore it back to its original RAF colours.[/img]

Looks tidy, I've always fancied one myself, especially with those tyres on. Smile

Thanks guys Very Happy
I am buying it from someone in the EMLRA and they have most of the vehicles history so it should be easier to restore back to its former glory.
I am also looking at buying a 2A 1959 Pick up - if we can agree on a decent price.
