When it was in service this Super Comet would have been a common sight around London, delivering fuel to National stations across the capital. Restored in its National livery (and subsequently featured in Classics and Vintage Commercials magazine as well as Dinky Toys making a model) the bodywork, paint trim and wheels/tyres are all reported to be excellent and the seats, door cards and dashboard are rated as excellent. The engine is rated as very good for starting, running and presentation and the running gear too is vendor-scored as very good throughout.
