RAF Pickup Restoration Page

Military Feature - RAF Vanguard Pickup Restoration Completed:

Hi Phil


Pleased to report that the 1952 Phase 1A - Standard Vanguard Pick-up is now back on the road, some 5 years after restoration commenced.


As you can see we still need to source a tilt and canvas.


We have entered the vehicle in the HCVs London- Brighton Run on 6th May.

Hi Phil,

It looks great now.

Hope that you will be able to show it off at the International Rally at Denny Abbey.
