Surplus yard Ferrets.    (Ver 1)

Although the days of plenty of the WW2 vehicle surplus yards are now long gone it is still possible to find vehicles in quantity. The pictures below are of a dealers stock in Europe in 2001.

In the picture below is all 3 major Ferret variants plus some interesting modifications. In the left rear corner is a Mk 1/2 and to the right of it is a Mk 1 with a roof hatch, not a normal feature. Immediately above the Mk 1 is another Mk 1, this time with a Makrolon screen and a very large bin over the rear engine deck.

The Mk 1/2 closest to the camera has an interesting bin fitted over the 2 rear driver's view hatches.
