This vehicle was formerly owned by Land-Rover specialist Clive MacDonald-Smith as a breakdown truck in North Yorkshire. It has since been sold on and is now owned by a French collector minus the sign writing and with bargrip tyres and a drum winch fitted.

Clive rebuilt it in the 1980s, and used it for a few years before treating it to a new chassis. The only change made was to fit a truck cab rather than the hard top supplied new. It was originally a demonstrator vehicle for Arnold Wilson’s Land-Rover at Leeds, before being sold on to a breakdown firm. It was built in factory it’s original factory colour of overall deep bronze green, but ended up two-tone blue and white before Clive repainted it.
