FAL164 Land Rovers Set
32p Series 1 88 Inch
The 88” Series 1 Land Rover was produced from 1957-58, still fitted with the 1.6l. Engine, although a 2-litre diesel was also available. Body components remained mostly the same, as the extra 2” was built in forward of the footwells, thereby allowing all of the optional equipment to be utilized as well.
78p Series 1 Hard Top
Probably one of the most numerous of Series 1's to come to the Islands, the 86” was many people's first Land Rover. Produced from 1954-57, these stalwart vehicles came to the Islands in both new and second-hand models, many with soft tops but also a lot with the highly desirable hard-top and 3 doors. Many vehicles of this era survived right up to 1982, before being superseded by much younger Land Rovers brought in as the Islands re-built and developed.
£1.26 Series IIA Roadless Traction Forest Rover
The Roadless 109” Forest Rover was developed in 1961-62 by Roadless Traction for the Forestry Commission for traversing fallen trees and drainage ditches.
A standard 109” cab/chassis with conventional 2.25l. engine and gearbox was fitted with Kirkstall planetary reduction hub axles and 28” tractor wheels.
To enable turning, the front axle was made wider than the rear and a special cargo body was also fitted. Only nine units were ever constructed, including the prototype, two of which were exported.
The Falklands. Roadless 109” was imported in 1962 by Robin Pitaluga for doing the overland journey from Gibraltar Station to Stanley and was extremely capable, particularly in crossing the newly-created Buffalo drainage ditches. This vehicle still exists and is preserved in a family collection.
£1.96 Series IIB Forward Control
The Forward Control 2A/2B was designed in 1963 as a larger load-carrier using 75% standard L/R parts. Only four ever came to the Falklands. This particular vehicle did sterling service for the Ship Hotel, British Antarctic Survey and John Rowlands Construction, before being damaged in 1982. It was rebuilt in 1988 and continued to be used on a sheep station, where it is currently preserved.
