LAND-ROVER

PARADE VEHICLE

It's the same basic model as last year's election special which had a politician figure on the microphone and a researcher helping out by distributing leaflets. This year instead of a politician we get a clown and instead of a researcher we get a monkey. Irony was alive and well and living in Swansea in 1965.

Of course this is another outing for the excellent 109" Series 2 (not 2a) Land-Rover pickup or truck-cab as we Land Rover anoraks call it. The public address body works well in the casting used for the wrecker. The tailgate is missing and the hole which on the tow truck locates the winch on this one takes the rivet for the back body. 

It was in the catalogue from 1965 to 1969 and is always scarce, sought after and priced to match.

This example is very playworn and the monkey is missing, as well as some decals, however nothing that is not available from Steve Flowers or one of the other suppliers.
