Question Perdio p.c.32

I picked up what looks like an old receiver at the rally today.
Printed circuit has legend PERDIO P.C.32 IF/AF and is of a very early design.
It appears to have three IFTs and two audio transformers and has a couple
of AF117s and an AF115. It has an antenna socket and a six-way chocolate
strip at the back.
Does anyone have have any information on this old beast?

No, it does not look like a commercial portable radio at all!
There are two knobs on front panel and an intriguing slow motion control,
a six-way chocolate strip and a tv type antenna connector on the back, all
in a plain aluminium box. Puzzling is a variable pot that is not accessible
when the covers are on.

Curiosity got the better and I dismantled my old (much modified) PR32 Town & Country to double check the board ID.
Pics attached.
The mods were a BFO & product detector and regulator for external supply.
I suspect it was a popular basis for homebrew if the pcb was available.
