    The Dormobile

    Dormobile is another variation of the Camper. The Dormobile conversions were a fascinating part of Landrovers history. The conversion was factory approved and built by Walter Ltd. of Folkestone, Kent.

    This early Dormobile was based on a 60's IIA shown here.

    i should point out that according to "land rover monthly" the vampire is the 2nd rarest FC101 variant, the hard bodied Vampire electronic warfare version was up for auction at GSA, wiltam last autumn.

    the vampire is instantly distiguishable from other FC101 variants by its forward raking panel above the windscreen.

    for details contact sales@wiltham-sv.com

    The Foers Ibex

    The Ibex is one of the most unusual and rare transformations of the Land Rover's workhorse 90. The running gear is retained, overhang shortened etc to make an already capable vehicle really outstanding off road.

    The Roadrailer

    The specialised firm Right Track Construction of Atherton, Lancashire owns 2 special Landrovers built by Permaquip of Giltbrooke, Nottimghamshire, worth about £100000. One is a 110 high-cap pickup, the other a 130 crew cab.

    Using the "Hy-Rail" conversion, the Rovers can be quickly made to run on railway tracks. They can tow 2 loaded trailers and may travel at a speed of 15mph on rails. They have proven worth every Penny, sad a spokesman of the company. In fact many places requiring attention can only be reached by rail. So you either have to dispatch a work train and by this blocking the whole line. Or you can run those Landrovers, drive them clear off the tracks close to the woking place and have the tracks free again.

    The vehicles carry standard British Rail safety devices including front and rear lightning and an air horn. When driving on tracks the steering is firmly locked in the dead-ahead position.

    However this is not the first conversion of Landrovers using railway tracks. In the 1960's a diesel-powered 109 was capable of hauling a train weighing 50-60 tons. Stopping was another problem, however.

    Fire Fighters

    Since it's very early days Land Rovers were used as fire fighting vehicles. They bridged a gap between the portable extinguishing equipment and the heavy lorry-mounted fire fighting material.

    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680077



    Two early Series I

    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680078


    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680079



    Series IIA Forward Controls lend themselves good for medium-sized enterprises or small villages. They had much better payload than the other Series vehicles and also more space for the load.

    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680080


    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680081



    A very rare example of an conversion carried out on a Series M on 88inch FC base. This was based on an prototype made by Land Rover in 1960 but which did not make it into production. 2 of those conversions are known to exist.

    The State Review Vehicles

    The first State Review Vehicle (above) was built in 1953 on an early 86" chassis. It remained in service until 1975 and is now part of The Heritage Collection, Gaydon.

    This one's on a 109 Inch chassis but shows the same general lines

    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680084



    This 107"-based vehicle was built for game viewing in Africa in the mid-50's. Soft leather and easy entrance. Another folding step hides below the visible one. Note also the large door with chrome grab handles. The panel above the left seat has 3 switches (Stop, Slow and Start) that signal the driver what to do.

    The "Judge Dredd" Mobiles

    In the year 2139 few vehicles are left on earth, one of them driven by Judge Dredd, a cartoon caracter from the 2000AD Comic. The only safe way to travel in that violent world is in armored taxis- built by Landrover.

    So for the Hollywood movie "Judge Dredd", starring Sylvester Stallone, several 101's were equipped with a futuristic fiberglass body. Design work was done by Gordon Sked and David Woodhouse, the vehicles were built by Land Rover. After the movie was finished almost all vehicles were bought by Philipp Bashall and are for sale. The vehicles are not road legal as they are but can be easily made to. All the 101's mechanical parts are retained. This is a hot, noisy vehicle- but what a headturner!

    The interior isn't changed except for the one prototype used for interior shooting. Access is quite difficult and there are some other shortcomings like noise, heat and no ventilation. And no reclining seats.

    aridsoul the most interesting landrover story is the series 2 lightweight truck.these were only built for milatry and they where very strict with the requirments.this model had so many names in the milatry some called it half a ton landrover [although it was more than a ton]but thats what the milatry iniatially wanted the weight to be.it had to be light enough so the helicopters of that era could lift it hence it was also called the air drop landrover aswell.it is almost same as the spanish milatry landrover that has been posted earlier.it also had to fit on the standared nato pallets so it could be tranported by plane.the best thing is that my old man has got it in pakistan but the poor thing is just rotting away

    ****Unusual Land Rovers**** -680329


    Taleban fighters often operate as a 'pick-up truck cavalry' force of adapted four-wheel drive vehicles such as the Toyota Hi-Lux. Nicknamed Ahu (the deer) these trucks are renowned for their sturdy design and reliability, and offer good manoeuvrability across harsh terrain.

    They can carry up to ten guerrillas armed with heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, who fight either from the back of the moving truck, or dismount and adopt ground positions.

    Colonel Langton told the BBC: "The Toyota is not just a mainstay, they exist in large quantities across the country. They're a vehicle of convenience - they don't have to ride horses, camels or walk. And they go anywhere."

    Such a force can be quickly mustered into a surprise attack and equally quickly dispersed afterwards.

    In isolation, Taleban vehicles often display no outward sign of their military purpose allowing them to blend into everyday scenery in towns and villages.

    Motorbikes and push-bikes are also favoured as relatively quick, cheap and easy means of travelling distances over rough ground.

    All u've to do is grab the keys to @Voyager's Willys and ask as if u've borrowed it for a few hours... never return it back, instead send him a check.... thats the only way to do it!
