This is the infamous "red & red" machine that interrupted the sequence of what became the first batch of deep bronze green RGC-reg 86" for the Ministry of Supply.
C/N 170600700 - 170600709 were destined to go to the Halesowen Engineering Co. Ltd but this one somehow appeared in their midst, so 170600699 was substituted to become RGC 504 in its place.
170600703 finally came off the line on 20/10/55, nearly a month after the others and was despatched to Henley's, London on 4/11/55.  Good to see it still looking so new!
