What a sad and sorry sight. Such a splendid and useful vehicle in such a sorry condition, the military driver responsible for the upkeep of this vehicle while it was in service would tear his hair out at the state of it now.

It is part of a museum collection, so I suppose budgets are limited. But what is wrong with it, as from this photo there is not much I can identify as 'badly maintained' except for a broken indicator....

Budgets may be limited,Marcel, but a little routine maintenance such as keeping tension on the self-recovery winch cable, and correct adjustment of the wiper arms so the blades wipe the windscreen and not the bodywork,go such a long way to improve the appearance of the vehicle, and cost virtually nothing except a little time.( and that's just a couple of points obvious from the pic, i'm sure there must be more that can't be seen.)

and they can't spell Stalwart! The Bundeswehr actually tried out 2 of these 1966/67. It could be one of those as they trialled the FV622(with crane).

'Stahl' is German for Steel isn't it? They must have messed up the translation somewhere.
