Hi all, new owner stage1 88 prototype

Post by 88 stage1 »

New to landrovers, bought it off an old mate who's had it sat in his garage for 4 years. It was featured in LROI july 2004, its an inca yellow stage1 88 soft top prototype. Didnt really know what it was when i bought it but from what i've read since it seems to be a one off. It needs a bit of work which i plan to do over the winter, no doubt i'll be needing advice/help. cheers Chris. Co durham uk

Welcome aboard. There are precious few Stage 1 88's ever made, glad to have you around.
