These are photos of the actual model available. Remember that these toys are around 50 years old! All models advertised are original, not restored or repainted unless I have stated otherwise.
The Longleat Land Rover appeared in Gift Set 8, issued in April 1968. It has the same ‘camouflage’ pattern as the Daktari Land Rover issued a few months earlier.
The set had a chap with a guy with a shotgun standing in a strange hole above the passenger seat. There was also a shed, a couple of lions and three chunks of meat! In the back, instead of a canopy there is a yellow cage affair and a red drum rolling around. All this enabled Corgi to make a lot more money out of this remarkably long-running model.
The Land Rover can be found with normal wheels, cast wheels and Whizzwheels, usually with a hook at the back.
Examples with the cage and drum are not so easy to find now and the hunter’s gun often gets broken as does the red canopy lid.
