ALRE Truck of the Month




After several "Googles" of Land Rover, I found my 1967 Series IIA in Saskatoon. After negotiations, part of which included trailering the truck to Edmonton, it was soon sitting in my yard! (What have I done?)..... There it sat, lots of dents on every body panel, chugging to life with lots of effort and smoke, puddles forming in several places underneath, cracked tyres and that old truck smell inside. I was in Love!

Not having much (hardly any) mechanical know how, but with a newly purchased manual in hand I set to work removing, trying to find, and replacing as many parts as I could. With the help of a mechanic friend and a couple of "Do Overs", it finally passed the provincial inspection!! I was finally on the road in a "Real Land Rover"!!.
