This 6 wheel Landrover dates from the early 1980s and was donated to the Museum by Ipswich Borough Council when Ipswich Airport closed in 1987.

The Landrover was used to provide emergency cover for the Airport. The Landrover was originally built as a normal 4 wheel drive vehicle and was converted at some time to 6 wheel drive configuration and had a water tank and pump installed, along with a V8 rover engine.

It is complete with all its original equipment apart from the ladder.
