FAR TO UNDER-POWERED FOR FIELD WORK, THIS BRITISH-LELAND LAND ROVER SERVED WELL FOR NORMAL TRANSPORTATION.
Earl Prechtel's "Poor man's Rolls Royce". Earl says:"I sure did have fun with that car... it attracted a lot of attention when I shipped it home." Editors note: Earl took that car back to Ft. Rucker where he drove it until he had to sell it when he transfered back overseas.
