My Staghound as found and recovered.

It had been mostly stripped out internally and then left to rot. The motors were total disasters. But the auto gearboxes will be okay with some effort. No radiators. The turret ring given enough work will rotate again one day.

It looked a lot better on the outside that the inside.

I subsequently sold the vehicle and it is now being very, very slowly restored by a friend. Around 2010 with any luck it might be finished. He is even going to the trouble of getting all the internal parts that were, re-cadmium plated!

The Staghound was years ahead of it's time, Automatic gearboxes, 2 engines that could be individually selected on/off line whilst moving, electric power assisted steering, twin brake boosters, tow startable (that's right with automatic gearboxes!), 11 periscopes and 2 episcopes and by all accounts lovely to drive.
