Carmen was born in Germany and was exported to the Sudan as a factory built right hand drive vehicle. When found by her previous owner she had bullet holes in her side and a secret hidden compartment in the back. It is likely that she was used as a war ambulance, the secret compartment was probably used to hide important medications if she was hijacked.
Carmen was imported into the UK in 2014 where she was stripped down to bare metal at Envirostrip in Tamworth whilst being lovingly restored by IRVS restorations. She was then rebuilt from the bottom up, both inside and outside to her current jaw dropping condition.
