Just wondering how many 55's there are in the UK. I have only ever seen one for sale

This picture is from a Toyota UK brochure from 1975 and it looks like the photo was taken in the UK. Does this one still exist???

My boy James spoke to Jons son Alf. His friend sold this truck a while back. The guy who has it has jacked it up and bobtailed it now. Different but........

There is one here in Newton Abbot owned and restored by a local garage owner (cruiser fan) who used to look after my first 80 & where my son did his apprenticeship.
He collected it from a welsh barn years ago. A blue and white one with petrol engine.
