WW2 era Austin 10 wanted

Front opening (suicide) doors, running and driving.

Concourse condition not required.

Location near Herts would be an advantage.

A GRQ is fairly rare (the 1939 & wartime model) but the post-war GSI looks the same and I have seen them painted up as WWII staff cars looking very smart. Another option is the Tilly 10hp truck as in the pics of Princess Elizabeth in the ATS.
Hope you find what you are looking for.

Thanks for the hints Peter.
A WW2 staff car is the plan as we work at the DH museum at London Colney.

The DH museum is a new one to me. Must pay it a visit.

I have distant memories of visiting the factory to see the Comet 1 fly and in production on the line. Both very noisy!
