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.
|Acquired by the Museum:||1987|
|Current State:||As acquired|
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.
