  1. I’m not in U.K., Channel Islands are part of British Isles and our laws are very different. Basically the Land Rover was purchased from one of the military vehicle auctions back in 2011, unfortunately the current owner appears to have lost the bill of sale, also when he purchased it he had it shipped to Jersey CI and left it in a field for 9 years while he decided what to do with it. It now needs a full brake overhaul, engine is not running well and most rubber bits are perished. Bodywork and chassis appear ok apart from surface rust which should hopefully clean up. Jersey regulations specify that the vehicle must be in a clean and roadworthy condition when presented to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Dept for inspection prior to it being allowed on the road. If previously registered it can be driven from A to B for purposes of repair, this one is unregistered so it needs to be towed/low loaded everywhere. Also without the original bill of sale it is not possible to pay the import duty to Customs and without the receipt for this the vehicle cannot be registered.
  2. Excellent, thank you very much. It’s an impressive looking beast but needs a fair bit of work to get it registered. Not sure what I’m going to do yet

  4. I’ve been offered the above Landy, found it on Merlin but some of the info isn’t translating in my brain! Can anyone let me know what it means please.
  5. Would you be able to post on here if you see one come up for disposal. A poor one is better than non. Depending on costs of course
  6. I can’t find much information on staff cars. Is there any publication or website that lists what vehicles were adopted as official transport for officers and the like WW1 and WW2 ones are fairly well documented but I’m interested in the 1950 onwards. back in the 1990’s we had some visiting generals in the Island and they were using metallic red Rover 800’s with red plates with stars on the bumpers. What was used in the 1950’s to 1980’s?
  7. I haven’t sourced anything yet, will need to find something over the next year or so.
