My 1960 Land Rover Series II 88" Deluxe Station Wagon is one of very few North American Market Land Rovers purchased by the Canadian Federal Government as a workhorse to tackle the wilds of Western Canada. It has spent nearly all of the last 60 years being battered, bruised, and dented on almost every available surface of the original Birmabright aluminum alloy. There is very little evidence of the original smooth bodywork or mid-grey paint on the outer panels. Several years ago I came across this truck parked in a field and inevitably fell in love, so I purchased it from the nearest landowner and began a slow rebuild as I cut my teeth as a first-time classic car owner and restorer. Although it is missing the original interior insulation, it has still miraculously retained all the rare Canadian dealer options such as the Koenig crank-driven winch with cab controls, Canadian-built Kodiak II heater (currently removed for restoration), throttle hand control, tropical double roof and a deluxe hood with wheel, all of which are utilized regularly as this truck keeps up its legacy as an unkillable workhorse exploring Western Canada.
