Truck ¼ Ton 4x4 GS Rover Mk3- Military Reg number 39 BP 04:
Chassis: 57100646

Sold Off: 74th Ruddington Auction on 21 July 1964 as Lot-377, located on Ruddington’s “Cable Ground”.
It is possible that the first unit to use 39 BP 04 was 160 Provost Company Royal Military Police in Southern Command.
It left service in 1965 and was registered as COT 98C in Ringwood Hampshire.
Original chassis plate and military plate in place.
Up to date V5 here and ready to go in new owners name.
Last on the road in 2005 it has been resting since.
Original buff log book in the history file.
It is now running a 2. 25 Land Rover petrol engine which was put in a long time ago.
It has recently been got up and running and can now be driven onto a trailer and manoeuvred around but has no brakes! Invoice on file for various works to get the engine running of £1669 a few months ago.
The chassis looks sound and has had various welding over the years but doesn't look to need any now.
The bulkhead needs a top rail and some work in the drivers footwell otherwise solid.
All complete this will make a great restoration project and could be put back on the road and used as is.
The bodywork has been hand painted many years ago and is showing orange paint through the green maybe from its military past?

Can be viewed off Junc 14 M4 Near Hungerford Berkshire
