Is it 6x6 or 6x4?

"Six Wheel Drive" usually refers to a 6x6, not a Lazy Axle.

Diana,
I am mystified by your post above. The TACR1 SIIa and SIII were built for British military and none to my knowledge were 6x4. I actually restored one of the first TACR1 for the fire museum at RAF Manston over 20 years ago.
In service they were known to be more capable cross country than the RR TACR2 6x4

regards, Richard

Perhaps you are correct, having never laid hands upon them I'm going from my memories of the 900 club forum a couple or four years ago.  However I did have an understanding that there were some 6X4 non Range Rover airport/airfield crash rescue vehicles built by non-LR factory builders: Charmichael or Cuthbertson or similar coachbuilders.

That damned Al Zeimer has a lot to answer for!   ;D

These others conversions you mention would not have been TACR1 as they were specifically for RAF and RN on 4x4 1 ton chassis. That is not to say there were not any non-RR 6x4, just that they weren't TACR ...... if you get my drift!

Not sure if I know Al Zeimer  :-\
