What a lovely pair. We had the good fortune in April to play host to the two 109 Land Rover Series Fire Brigade vehicles, to fettle their locks and looks, accompanied by the 101 Forward Control troop carrier.
No fairer sound than their uncomplicated twin-carb V8s has graced our ramps for a while.
For as long as their purposeful grace stood between our workshop and the world, our property’s value doubled.
The truck cab 109 is kitted out for carrying the braces of pheasants
whilst the 101 Troop Carrier now carries the shoot parties headed for the pheasants. Last year, we carried out a conversion of trucks and trailers for carrying the beaters, dogs and guns, hopefully we’ll see those beauties back next year.
The 109 tender is the piece de resistance, though. Converted by Carmichael, they of the original 6 wheel drive Range Rover Classic, the vehicle has had the magic applied in thick layers. Featuring heated shelves and fridges for food and drinks, a radio with digital mixing deck and an espresso machine to the rear, this is the ultimate kitchen wagon.
A childhood of Matchbox toys relived.
