Is this the 1965 Weapons Carrier or the ultra rare 1964 US Army Land Rover? Who can tell them apart? I'm told that the US version has no aerial in which case this is the Weapons Carrier as there is a hole where the aerial should go..

It is yet another variant on the Land-Rover Series 2 109" Truck Cab that Corgi loved so much. The back of the cab is wrong, but otherwise this is a very well modelled and accurate version of the vehicle - so well modelled in fact (cab apart) that a Land Rover anorak like like me can tie it down to the early Series 2 of 1958-60. In 1960 the Series 2a was released which lasted until 1973. I currently own a real 1964 Series 2a Land Rover which is the fourth Land Rover I've owned. These were short lived in the range and are consequently hard to find and expensive.

REMOVABLE CANOPY
RADIO AERIAL
SPRING SUSPENSION
SEATS
STEERING WHEEL

Strictly speaking I think this one should have a drab green tilt, I think this grey one is borrowed from one the other 15 or so Corgi 109's I own.
