A member of the public has notified us of this very rare Australian Vanguard Van that has been re-imported to this country.

One of the photos shows its exact location in Colville Road, Acton, West London.

Please try to save this Van before it is too late.

Note that the Van has migrated towards the wall, compared to where it was in the Google Earth photo. Anyone local looking for a restoration project?
