Strong chance this a camera car Austin Moke 6-wheeler built for Gerry Anderson - RYW 677F

".... Anderson had a special camera car built, which again was Mini Moke based, using and extra rear subframe and six wheels. The lengthened platform was necessary to locate camera and film crew and there was a camera mount on the bonnet, too. The car supposedly used hydrolastic suspension for a soft ride. Question is: does it survive? The DVLA recognizes it as a blue Austin Light Utility 4x4 with 2-axle rigid body weighing a whopping 3499 kilograms! That has to be a mistake? 'RYW 677F' - where are you?" - Link to "maximummini.blogspot.co.uk" with pictures which look a match.

Registration number: RYW 677F
✗ Untaxed Tax due: 01 May 1987
MOT No details held by DVLA
Vehicle make AUSTIN
Date of first registration September 1967
Cylinder capacity (cc) 0 cc
Fuel type PETROL
Export marker No
Vehicle status Not taxed
Vehicle colour BLUE
Vehicle type approval Not available
Revenue weight 3499kg

... a lot of that info looks dodgy, but DVLA often finds specials difficult to digest.

Mmm, I conversed with the gent running that site as I was adding the image! The plate number on this vehicle looks to be different to the Anderson vehicle (although physically, it's identical) - he chap said he'd since learned that Anderson had a second vehicle made. I can't get a clear grab of the vehicle showing the plate, but the prefix looks like "DWF".

Here's the appearance (such as it is): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJ2QxI7y2FM
