This 1966 Land Rover Series IIA 88 wheelbase 4x4 has an incredible story unlike any you are likely to encounter. It originally served as a radio relay vehicle for an unidentified paramilitary group in northern Africa. It was dropped by parachute into extremely remote locations and used in a series of other similar Land Rovers in order to get important tactical messages across the great expanses of Africa. Because it was often dropped into location, it is believed the 15,770 miles showing are accurate. There is no doubt this vehicle has seen some serious conflict as evidenced by the bullet crease in the right front fender. After retiring from military life, it was imported to Canada and then into the United States where it continued to see only occasional use. It sports great looking military green paint, and drives exactly as you would expect of a 15,000 miles vehicle: the steering is tight and accurate, and it shifts through the gears smoothly. The hardtop features extremely rare intact corner windows, and really makes this Land Rover stand apart from the others.
