Land Rover tower wagons (or 'cherry pickers') are still in use with power companies today but this 1973 petrol-engined example affords a more classic twist. At one stage operated by the London Borough of Wandsworth it changed hands 10 years later when in the hands of Merton, South London-based GV Mays, whose livery it carries today. The body and paint are said to be fair although the interior could be improved, while mechanically much work has been carried out during the vendor's tenure. Work has included bringing it up to MoT test standard, with a braking overhaul kit being fitted plus new brake hoses, master and slave cylinders. New spark plugs and an oil change have been carried out, a new fanbelt and speedo cable being supplied along with new points, condensor and rotor arm. Fresh tyres (and tubes) were also fitted. Ready for use on a commercial basis or on a country estate or simply as a different take on land Rover ownership, Bonhams MPH is delighted to offer this unusual example.
