This M3A1 was one of the batch of Stuarts imported from Brazil by RR Motor Services in October 2008. It has a distinctive vision port on the side of the driver’s compartment; this matches a vehicle (with serial number 7053) for sale in a classified advert on MilWeb in May/June 2011. It is believed to have since been sold but its current status and location are unknown.
