Hello,
I’m a new member from Brussels / Rutland, and the new owner of this rather splendid 1957 109” trayback, recently imported from Australia. An interesting addition to my small, but growing ‘fleet’ of Series Land Rovers.  Already earning its keep as a light-duty runnabout in Rutland.  John
2 Thanks.

Welcome and enjoy!


I believe that you organised last year's Series II Club's Annual meet in Rutland, so your Trayback will be following in the footsteps of younger cousins!

John did indeed organise last year's S2 rally and excellent it was too.
He has owned land rovers for many years, indeed he has a S2 that he has owned for many many years, since his 21st birthday..
The tray back looks brilliant and is not dissimilar to Paul Lund's Wombat.

There are a lot of vehicles that when fitted with a tray back just make me think , that would be a lot nicer with its original load bed. I can think of Morris minor pickups ,never look successful . Short wheel base land rovers ,not quite ,Toyota hilux ,never as nice as original. But for some reason these tray back convertios on long wheel base series ones actually Work for some reason they just look "right". I'm a big fan

Me too, I think it's because the 107/109 already has that dedicated lower cab panel in the design making the cab a seperate entity visually regardless of what's behind it.

Thanks all for the warm welcome.  I was indeed part of the team organising the Series 2 Club Rally in Rutland last year - thanks also to you Mark for donating some prizes for the Raffle, which helped raise £950 for the East Midland Air Ambulance.


Hoping to join in local meet-ups / green-lane events over the Spring / Summer,


John
