76LAN2005 OXFORD DIECAST Land Rover Series 2 LWB Hard Top Hoveringham
The Series II Land Rover was introduced in 1958 and was manufactured until 1961, when it was replaced by the IIA.
Whereas the Series I had flat sides, the Series II can immediately be identified with the rounded side panels, which allowed for the wider track of the vehicle.
Coming in Short and Long Wheelbases with numerous body combinations including fixed roofs, canvas roofs, open tops, station wagons etc.
Used as a Mobile Field Service vehicle by the Hoveringham gravel extraction company. Registered 743 ANN and decorated in their characteristic orange and black colour scheme with red wheel centres and lower rear panel, a further detail sees the well-known Hoveringham Mammoth logo on the doors.
Note too the silver masking along the edges of the rear door with clever reproduction of the rivets, while the radiator benefits from further additional detail with the satin black masking behind the front grille.
