Brochure – Special Edition (c.1983, colour)

This brochure was issued after the move to the third yard in Napierville, following the late 1982 fire which destroyed the second yard. It only features the mk2 (“Edition Speciale“) and the brochure itself is likely of a 1983 or 1984 date. » View Brochure (pdf opens in new tab/window) « BACK TO DOCUMENTS INDEX
