This was the first Ram to be built without side doors. It was acquired from the Swords and Ploughshares Museum at Kars; when seen there in 2000 it was stored outside and very rusty. It had previously been converted into a bulldozer. (Source: D. Herbert/SCACT).
It underwent restoration at the Canadian War Museum from the summer of 2010 to September 2011.
