Long wheelbase safari wagon, in 1982
The long wheelbase 'Safari' truck had a 2.4 litre petrol engine. Even with freewheel hubs it was a thirsty beast and once got 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 the owner made a profit, selling it for £1,100 after some years use. The Land Rover truck is believed to be in regular use today.
