B.C Forestry Land Rover identification
« on: September 12, 2021, 12:16 PM »
Hello there,

I wonder if anyone knows what the B.C Forestry/ B.C Hydro Series 2 Land Rovers looked like or were equiped with around the late 60's?

Were they painted all the same colour and if so what colour was that? Red or Light Blue?

Were they all equiped with winches or any specific parts to identify them? Additional lighting holes or trim?

I believe they may have had a metal strap across the front guards, if this accurate?

Any assistance or guidance is appreciated in advanced.

Somewhere in the plethora of pics I have is a pic of the Canada Indian Affairs Branch, Series 1 at the lambert homestead on the alexander Mackenzie trail, complete in it original patina of orangish redish brownish colour
Cheers, Bill

Thanks Bill, Any Idea if this colour was carried on through the 60's?
