LandRover 129

129 inch w.b. Lan dR over

Land Rover experimented with larger versions of Land Rovers, building various prototypes that never went into production. This particular one has a 129" wheelbase, 9.00x16 tyres, and 2.5L 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel (now the latter was a sign of things to come). It was on show at Billing98

129 inch prototype

This 129" one has a number of differences from above, such as in the rear bodywork (?shades of HCPU?) and in the bonnet. (There is a Carmichael fire engine in the background.)

129 inch pro to type

Note the leaf springs over the axles. It is clear that most of the cab derives from the ordinary Land Rover of the day.
