130 Utility: Mountain Rescue to Daktari Camper
After a bit of negotiation, I've bought our MR teams 130 Smile.

The team has owned it from new and put all 51k miles on to it over the last 17 years.

Next job is to peel all of the batenburg off....

What was the reason the team got rid? Was it just age or no longer suited the operational need? 2010 XS USW

I'd be interested to see some details of the inside if possible camelman? Presume it was a Foley's or similar conversion? 1985 127 V8 Build Thread

It was done by Frogs Island when new. I'll get some pics but essentially looks like a standard 5 door utility with an extra 20 inches in the rear load area.
The rear seats fold flat however so we could get a stretcher in comfortably
