R8665170 was, according to the BMI Heritage Trust, "despatched in" on the 29 April 1949 and "despatched out" to Boulds Motors Limited, Newport, Wales on the 16 May 1949.

The PO brought her from Longmoor Camp in the mid 1960's to work as a recovery and general duties truck for his Greatham Service Station in Hampshire. When the garage was sold in the early 90's ,was left semi-derelict for 10 years before briefly being brought back on the road in 2005. Brought in July 2018 her recommissioning was completed just over 2 years later in July 2020 with a lot of help from friends.
