Many collections have an ultimate goal. Ours is the restoration of a Sd.Kfz.232 Büssing Nag eight wheeled armoured car.

We have to revisit the very same process but only after a detailed information gathering process to gather all surviving information on this vehicle and the parts required for an authentic rebuild. Two transfer boxes, two driver’s positions and the extremely complex eight wheeled independent suspension to highlight just a few of the features.
