While travelling with my late Dad’s boss, he drove a 1956 Series 1 109″ Truck Cab. I then to drive in the same Land Rover. I then decided that I would own one one day.
My 1958 Series 1 109″ Truck Cab bought in 1960.
I tried to count but ran out of fingers and toes!!
My 1958 Series 1 is known as “The Old Lady”
Crossing the flooded Mzingwane River near West Nicholson with my Dad’s boss. The water was over the guard rails on the low level bridge. He stopped, took off the doors and off we went with the water running through the inside of the Landy. The water I would guess was about 750mm deep and the river was at that point about 350 to 400 mts wide.
The “Old Lady” has no accessories and bar a spade and axe managed to get out of all the trouble we got into.
Because it always breaks down when somebody else tries to drive it.
