A really nice item but won't a similar Bren carrier be more practical (money and time wise)? They mounted Vickers guns on those and they are reasonably easy to find and restore. There was a rough one (no drive train) on eBay UK about a week ago starting at 200 GBP, and there are plenty in the US and Canada. Personally I like the Ferret better.
BREN Carriers are out there. Looked at 5 in Phoenix a few years back, they're all sold now. Southeastern Equipment in Savannah, GA (I think) had over 100 ex Swiss ones years ago. They cut the rear differential out of them and sold them, basically ruining the vehicles. I think they ended up scrapping the rest of them.
