I don't know about the transporter mate - Templ4r might though - but that series isn't just bare of paint; that is seriously polished a la aircraft finish. Lots and lots and lots of hard work to get it like that. Is it a series III anyone, or even a SWB Stage 1? Now I've learned a bit more about Stage Ones! :rolleyes:

the transporter was in some promotional material i think, and judging by the fact ti has a series 1 on the back i would guess it was from the fifties.

that looks like a series 3 to me. interesting clear panels in the dorr and bonnet though. obviously intended as a show piece.
 
HI

Correct it is a Leyland Beaver.

This one originally belonged to the health service as some kind of mobile xray unit.
As you see is it was built by the Master of all restorers Ken Wheelright to transport his collection of series 1's approx 5 years ago.

It in fact followed me into Billing one year.

I've told my mates I want to make my last journey in the back of my trailer, towed by whichever Land Rover I have at the time. (A Series I with any luck - but you didn't hear me say that.) And I don't want a queue forming behind us either - a speeding ticket would make a good story.

That is corect about the vehicle in question.

I believe Rover had two of them. Neither appeared to have been registered as the only pictures of the original ones I've seen have them on General Trade plates.
 
That is a cracking looking Series, would that colour (or lack of) scheme be road legal?
How much would you upset front fog users in that!!!!?

My dad was an undertaker for a while. He got stopped for speeding in a hearse...36MPH in a 30 zone, responding to a police call. (guy had dropped dead in his front garden.)

Anyhew, dad was ex Cheshire Constabulary, traffic, and had tested the handheld vascar unit for them when it was new. He says to the pollisman, "I registered an oak tree moving at 6 MPH with one of those things..." to which the polissman says "Whats your occupation?".

Dads reply, bearing in mind, the hearse, the pinstripe suit, waistcoat etc, top hat on passengger seat...? "An effing taxi driver! Whats it look like??" Yes...he got a ticket....:D
