Classic Car Overview
Depending on where you're at in the world, this 1978 Land rover can be delivered by Parachute Drop to your property or Enclosed Transport to residence, lol lol just kidding but that is how they made it to the Battle field... by using detachable body components the result was a truck that could be air-lifted from anywhere and dropped in the middle of the action. Nothing tests the durability of a vehicle better than war, something Rolls-Royce found out when several of their Silver Ghosts were transformed into armored tanks in World War I.

They go anywhere and can get out of everywhere, they were the Ideal choice for the Armed Forces of many European Nations. This particular vehicle was imported from Italy and was used sparingly. Most of the Rovers designated for Military use are not nearly as nice as this or themed as such with the Safari roof. The body is original, rust free and very solid!! The original spots welds are still intact giving more validation to the babied life this little Rover had. Upon purchase, it underwent a throughout restoration and was upgraded with a fully enclosed and ventilated Safari roof.
