After reading his diaries I cannot look at this without seeing the late Alan Clarke MP. He did his election campaigning from the back of a Land Rover. Its interesting to note that Corgi tune into politics and bring out this model, The 1964 general election was a big deal, probably the first modern media-driven election, and according to Harold Wilson (the winning Labour Prime Minister)  ending13 years of Tory misrule. It actually began 15 years of flip-flopping between governments and mess. Alan's crew got back in in the end.

This is quite a nice example of a not very common variant of the 109" Landy. For a long time the lady researcher was missing from the rear step, but Silvio, a very nice and very talented user of the site from Italy spotted she was missing and made me a new one - he also sent me horses for my Rices Beaufort trailer and some rear tilts for my Land-Rovers.
