Hey now that you mention it, I saw on an episode of Sons of Anarchy what looked like an 88" Stage 1 ?? That was when they went off to Ireland. There was also a 109 hard top and a a 101 FC that they ran into a tree :roll:

The two 88 inch S1 V8 County Station Wagons (SKV777W and the red one: HOJ573W) have both recently been restored. There is an article about them in the current issue of Land Rover Monthly magazine and they can also be seen in the Dunsfold collection's website.

Thanks for posting this. Here's the link to the Series 3 webpage of the Dunsfold Collection:

http://www.dunsfoldcollection.co.uk/col ... ries3#main

From this I also see that Stage 1 prototype THP 74R, which I've seen for sale a couple of times over recent years, has also found its way into the Collection.
