Land Rover Series III HDL 163V

A collection of images of long wheelbase Land Rover Series III HDL 163V. The owner informed me that the vehicle had served with the RAF’s No.102 Squadron where it was used as an airfield hack and as such only had around 23,000 miles on the clock when he purchased it a few years ago. He told me he added the black to the camo and fitted the radio equipment himself. He also made the replica smoke grenade dischargers which are actually painted aerosol cans.

All photos were taken on May 6th 2017
