This engine now belongs to me, I is not used as a limo but still has the interior, I would like to restore it, however funds will not allow, I'm keeping it alive though and I have booked a place at the classic emergency vehicle show at Rawcliffe hall in Lancashire on may day. If you have any questions about this engine, or if you have any information for me please email me.

It's a TL - always recognisable by the low-mounted headlights.

Hi Morgan, yes thankyou I did get the pics, very kind, I will post some of it when it is ready for the show. Does anyone know why the identity lights and beacons may have been painted black? I thought you were able to display blue lenses as long as you didn't use the blue lights?
