  • ford mk 6 armoured car

    ford mk 6 in a field in the uk,,
    i have not seen this photo on the net or in a magazine, i have a interest in classic irish military vehicle but i am not a member of any irish vehicle club and therfor may not be as well informed as others so this mite be old news and this vehicle may be long gone the photo was taking (not by me) in october 2006. on the off chance that it is still there i have more photos, info, & map, it would make a nice restoration or for parts for the two irish ones thats here.

      The ones in Ireland are running so no parts needed . In fact it would be quite possible to get this machine running again as the running gear is quite simple.
      Wonder how much its current owner is looking for it.

      Can you get aregistration so we can at least track its history and see is it worth restoring.

      I sure some one will want it now we know there is one out there.

        16 of the mk6 were sold at auction in the early 70s 3 of which went to GB and i do not know what happend to the rest, the farmer who owns the field said (in 2006) that it was owned by a engineering shop that use to convert lorrys into special puspose vehicles but had gone bust a long time ago. i have no reg but there is a name on the side (see photo). to be honest lads i would be very surprised if it is still there, i also have this up on a irish military forum site that i know has members of irish military vehicle clubs and so far no one knows about it i will leave it for a fue days and if no one knows anything about it i will post any info i have..

                        Did the cars have serial numbers? A better way to track them than roadlegal number-plates.

                          What about the Ford that used to be in the Cobbaton collection?

                            I think you right about ZD1760.
                            It has the cuts in the side of the engine bay.

                              Great thread- great pics, well done

                              Whne I see the Ford I always for some reasons think of the Daleks
                              Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                              Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                              The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                              The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                              The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                              Are full of passionate intensity.
