One of the Rarer Land Rover Conversions – This is a genuine “Civilian” 4 berth Carawagon (Manufactured by Searle / Carawagon International Ltd).

As well as being in stunning unspoilt condition, this Land Rover is backed up by the largest history file I have ever seen. When I say “Too much to describe” – I really mean it. There are log books by the original owner (1972 to 2009 / 1000 to 156,00 miles) stating in detail every bit of maintenance carried out – there is a fuel log for the same period, noting every drop of fuel, and calculations for the fuel economy calculated tank by tank, and also year by year (average 18.71mpg over the period).

Also included with the Land Rover are:

The original build cards from land Rover – rare to find in their own right.

Original letters (5) from “Carawagon” during the period of the order for the Land Rover.

The original (Itemised) conformation of the order and of course the original Invoice from Carawagon – again itemised, showing all the additional items ordered at the time.

An invoice from Turner Engineering for the supply of a “High performance” lead free head, supplied in 1992.

There are brochures and catalogues for seals and fittings for the roof.

Copies of original Carawagon Brochures

Articles on the Carawagon – Including a copy of Land Rover Monthly September 2009 – which featured this particular vehicle

Articles from magazines which cover most aspects of maintenance and repair of Land Rovers

Rare original Land Rover booklets; “Proprietary Equipment & Special Conversions”, “Land Rover Driving Techniques”, and “A guide to Land Rover Expeditions”.

Original Owners manual plus the repair operation manual.

It would literally take hours to read and digest the information that will come with this Land Rover. I would strongly suggest any interested parties spend a day to come and inspect the Land Rover and look through the paperwork. I would say many items have historic interest.

LPD 606K - Huge History File

The Land Rover itself, is (as you would expect) in lovely condition, and fit to set off anywhere. The engine runs like a dream, and the gearbox works exactly as you would expect.

All the original “Carawagon” features supplied new with the Land Rover are included in the sale:

  • Rear bench seat (fold to make double bed)
  • Elevating roof (gives 6′ 2″ headroom)
  • Extra bunk beds – to make 4 berth
  • Rear living tent
  • fold out Primus stove
  • Small wardrobe
  • Storage unit with sliding doors
  • Water pump and pull out bowl
  • Fold out table

The Carawagon is well know for it’s simple design and the use of good quality materials – this is reflected in the current condition of the vehicle nearly 40 years on.

This Land Rover is appealing for so many reasons, and is looking for a new owner who will care for it in the same way as the 3 previous owners.

If you think you may be that person – why not call for a chat.

To be sold fully serviced with 12 months MOT and 6 months comprehensive warranty.
