here are a few more photos of when I found the old girl... she was a true barn find, coming from a farmers 'barn' near Young, NSW



and a mouse nest in the glove box

Hi there

They are a great capable vehcile - and trule barn find indeed.

I am surprised with the nest in the glove box, and no visable chewed wires.

Thanks

no not in there but every where else they chewed including the glow plug control box. :-)
The army did the worst of it too, chopping up the factory wiring loom to put in the blackout lights and just used crimp lugs to try and make it work.

Hi there

I have seen one of these tojos in Adelaide - but it has extensive roll over protection fitted (looks to be original as it has green padding for protection)

I am assuming these vehciles varied as did the land rovers with the modifications.

Sorry to hear about the wiring.

All the best

Ive had it down at corowa for the last two years now.

I had it made at a local upholstery place that does work for ADFA, the hard part was tracking down the canvas with the pattern i wanted. every one told me it was a 'restricted pattern' and could not sell it do me.
Ended up finding some brad new one made for a 6X6 landrover and had them work with that.

Yeah, once in the mud Les remembers to lock the hubs in?

Also the photo is reversed - the ARN is backwards.
