Dinty was purchased from a retired ADF serviceman. It was used in its last years 'in-service' as his personal vehicle around Holsworthy. This rare Gunbuggy, ARN 112-655, was retired from the Australian Army when the serviceman himself retired in late 2000. That means the gunbuggy served 37 years in the Army. It is in fine condition and very original. Most of the CES is still with it - except for the weaponry.

So far Dennis has only had to have to get a roadworthy check and some club plates for it to be road legal... Dennis has taken it around the streets and says that -even without the gun poking out over the bonnet- this Landy really attracts some looks in traffic.

What next? Well, Dennis is looking to add a 106mm RCL gun and the mounts (as per the little Gunbuggy photo down the bottom of this page). Anyone spotting such an item at a Sunday market or garage sale - please contact Dennis!
