Land rover Rescue and adoption......


Recommended Posts

My Friends and I have been gathering up series landrovers and parts for some time now.

we have gone to both ends of the southisland of New Zealand just to get these tresures no one else wants.

one of these Land rovers has me wondering its origins.......... or was it purpose built in NZ?

Do any of you Recognise this Type of Landrover body??????

Looks like it could be a one off job - rear tub and roof both look hand crafted.

Non standard door lock suggests it wasn't done by the factory, but I could be wrong.

Was there any "Built in NZ" campaigns in the 1950's?

Some countries reduced the import duties on vehicles if a percentage was locally produced, or if they were assembled locally.

It might be worthwhile checking with previous owners.
