I found this early issue flocked vam (chaos flock?) at a booty for £1 back in 2013'ish, I don't know what it is, but nearly every female seller at the boot sales I've been to always say to me "pound to you luv!", or if it's a fella "a pound to you guv!"
 
I should of taken a photo of the state the head was in before I cleaned it, it was really filthy including the flock, it took me quite an effort to carefully remove all the fluff and hair that had accumulated over the last 40 or so years, this was the last vam I restored recently (2013) after this I was lucky to find a couple of vam in better condition. There's another restoration photo that's missing, it shows the thigh and arm pins removed, plus the new fresh elastic being put in, I'll try find and insert it here:

I managed to find the missing photo above, now inserted.. My first restoration was shown on the Action Burt forum back in 2009/2010, but the photos are definitely gone for good.

"No Action Man will be left behind!"

Thanks chaps.
