History          
Year 1925

Papers that came with the vehicle suggest it was complete at one time. Peter Bartlett reconditioned this engine and in 1988 offered it to Mr. J. Bowker of Concession. David Griffiths  of Griffs Engineering in Marondera in 1989 offered "numerous spares" from a Rugby rebuild project that he abandoned. Lance  Able of Concession sold  the Rugby to Donald Morris Watt of Banket in
June 1990. At some point Howie Butler of Harare purchased it and sold it on. D.M. Watt sold it to Tim Palmer of Banket for ZW$88.000. in 2002. Neil Greenway purchased a pile of Rugby kit in 2010 from Tim Palmer. Noted being restored in 2015.
