Prove that it's not one! This is either a 357 Weapons Carrier from 1965 or a US Army Land Rover from 1963. How do you tell them apart? I'm told that the US Land-Rover has no aerial, in which case this is the later Weapons Carrier as it has the hole where the aerial once was located. It should have a plastic tilt, probably in khaki.

The US Army Land-Rover was briefly in the range between 1963 and 1964. It is virtually indistinguishable from 357 Land-Rover Weapons Carrier and I guess to be certain that you had one you would have to have the box. It is extremely rare and you will have to pay a lot of cash to get one.

This example is very worn and damaged but it is the rare red seats version which leads me to think that it may be the US Army Land-Rover as opposed to the Weapons Carrier, but it probably isn't!
