Ferret Armoured Scout Car

our Ferret armoured scout car


One of our oldest vehicles is the Ferret Armoured Scout Car bought back in 2002. With very little room inside, this soon proved to be one of the more difficult restorations. Some TLC inside and an engine service and it was all done. Since this restoration the Ferret has been a long serving vehicle in the Armourgeddon line up for voucher days and corporate events etc. Regular servicing and re-spays it still hold the test of time!
