*Much original military kit including gun mounts
*Recent new clutch, rear crossmember and outriggers
*Said to be driving very well


As much part of the British Army as a regular soldier, Land Rovers have played their part in the military for decades and are still in service today. This petrol-engined reconnaissance example saw duty with the Boscombe-based 30 Signal Regiment, which is nicknamed 'The Globetrotters.' Able to deploy rapidly anywhere in the world the Land Rover is part of their kit and this example, which was retired in 1997, comes to the auction with much of its kit in place. This includes radio/telephone, 24 volt electrics, twin fuel tanks, gun mounts front and rear, ammunition boxes, cargo net, roll hoop, rucksacks, etc etc It has the benefit of a recent clutch and the rear crossmember and outriggers have been replaced, our vendor says. Sure to have many stories to tell this rare and important example comes to market for the first time. Having been driven to the sale this unique Land Rover draws much attention and is offered at a very sensible guide price.
