Nelson's first four wheel drive vehicle.  Bought from a dealer at Selmeston, East Sussex for £900 after it had returned from safari while shooting a TV documentary film.  

 

 

Nelson's long wheelbase safari wagon

 

 

The long wheelbase truck had a 2.4 litre petrol engine.  Even with freewheel hubs it was a thirsty beast and once Nelson got it stuck in Robins Post Lane, Hailsham, while off-roading on waterlogged clay paths - eventually freed by rocking and going faster.  Great fun to own and a reliable workhorse with a starting handle for those occasions when the battery lets you down - and it did.

 

The resale value of these classics is so good Nelson made a profit, selling it for £1,100 after some years use.  The truck is believed to be in regular use today.
