    It looks like a nice standard Mk4 with the correct dark brown paint inside & out.

    The number on the side is some sort of unit number, don't know what for though.
    As for price, well, whats it worth to you? For me there only worth about 25 because although they are WW2 made, they weren't used until post war. So the marking on the side is probably post war too.
    But I have seen them sell for 75.
