Rare Land Rover selection on display at inaugural event

Stonham Barns Park in Suffolk saw an influx of Land Rovers from all over the country amass for the venue’s inaugural Land Rover Show.

Suffolk event showground Stonham Barns Park held its very first Land Rover Show on Sunday 8th October, having invited the public and motor clubs to pre-register a host of vehicles for display alongside exhibitors.

A colourful sea of classic and modern Land Rovers greeted ticket holders, celebrating the iconic 4×4 manufacturer with a unique and wide ranging display of models. Seemingly, at least one example of every model that Land Rover ever produced was present to be admired by enthusiasts of all ages.

The very first Land Rover went into production in 1948, so it was a delight to witness an immaculate 1949 Series 1, resplendent in Washbrook Dairy livery and towing a milk churn trailer.

The Land Rover Military One Tonne – also known as The 101 (its wheelbase in inches) – was in production from 1972 until 1978. Only 2669 of the hardy army conversions were ever built and became available to the civilian market in the late 90s. This GS version is air portable, designed to be light enough for helicopter transportation between sites.
