I guess you probably know something about these, Ron? Never seen one in New Zealand before. A very neat vehicle.

They use Jeep running gear Hamish,, only a few Hundred Built...

Thanks hayseed.

hamish back in 1970   aust army set a tender for a 4x4 vehicle as they were not happy with there landrovers????????
ford decided to built a few prototypes from the xy ute using 250-6    borg warner 3 speed n   dana axles n transcase
armys  found them a good allround 4x4 but not up to battlefield standards
ford set aside 432 bodies in brisbane plant but   getting the dana components took forever
by the time they hit the dealers   they were a old model and sales were slow
these days any xy falcon brings big$$$ and these are impossible to find
ironically back about 85    a bloke offered me one free and i declined!!!

Thanks Ron. First time I've ever seen one-don't know how it got to N.Z. It was for sale too. I remember reading about them in Wheels magazine in 1972-73.
