    New summer project! "Rosie"

    It's a 75! I'm surprised I know of as many people as I do. About 6 or so in the new England area not including myself. There were only about 2600 made world wide though, so if you don't live in Europe you'll have a hard time spotting one. Also to answer your question, the 101 is billed as a...

    Really big 5 year old update! Still got it, still driving it, still working on it, still haven't painted it [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] I will say I think it looks much better with canvas. True to Land Rover form, has a few issues popping up this year. Hopefully will have time between...

    New summer project! "Rosie" I've seen a couple with the chevron, again though, not really sure which conflict that was. Or if it was even the military that painted these specific ones for that matter lol

    Thanks for the info clinto! If I can get the time off from work, I think it'd be fun Also, zebedee, You mentioned that it could be possible that the truck could have served in the gulf. You may find it interesting that I talked to Les, the historian over at the 101 club, and he was able to...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    I've been told it could be... I'm still looking into its history. As far as I can tell, the truck was originally in Wales. Under the rattle can camo looks like desert tan... And under that seems to be the original British Racing Green color!

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    It ran me about £165 plus about £30 for shipping to the U.S. Though I will say, the quality of construction is much better than I expected... It looks like they made the canister walls out of high pressure schedule steel pipe and not an old dog food can :P

    I believe most of the uk trucks were decommissioned and sold by the end of the 90's but I could be wrong. I believe Malaysia still uses them, or so I've heard

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Thanks! I was looking for a different landy project at the time and this one just kinda fell into my lap. I do have the canvas hood, which I'd like to go back to. But I do not have the hood sticks. Was thinking about making some out of conduit if I can't find any around here. The front and...

    New summer project! "Rosie"

    Haha. That's custom. I call it "P.O. Chic" They did make them with a radio and ambulance body, and a very rare radio interceptor called the "VAMPIRE" Though I believe this top will be coming off to make room for the soft top.
