Landy was built by Land Rover Special Vehicles in 1994. This meant he was one of the first Land Rover Defenders to be fitted with a much better modern engine.
He was immediately taken to Nepal, where he worked hard in dusty conditions in the hands of the Traffic Police for almost thirteen years. Do you know where Nepal is?
He was retired from duty there in 2007 and returned home to the UK, where he was put up for sale on Ebay in April 2008.
We saw ‘Landy’ on Ebay, and, after placing the winning bid, we soon picked him up and discovered that he was indeed in good order structurally, and appeared to run very well.
