    Default George Gently Land Rover Query?

    Did anyone just see that Green Land Rover on George Gently? A Series 1 Truck Cab but something like a tickford. It didn't look familiar to me.

    Cheers

    Sorry that was such a perfunctory reply but I was still watching, nice to have something on that is not a repeat and also has the chance of turning up some nice 60's motors....

    Don't worry I understand. I'm afraid my grammar and punctuation was not perfect for the same reason! It seemed a shame that the Gypsy was featured for such a short period of time in the program. I would imagine someone had put quite a bit of thought into procuring it for the series.

    I'm sure all farmers used to keep their vehicles in such pristine condition!

    i find that odd (but ultimately necessary) on tv and film. they have to use vehicles bang on the year in which its set, where in reality people would be driving round in 5-10 year old cars.

    You would think that down at heal land rovers should be all over those tv series but you are right the cars are more often than not showroom fresh.

    Funnily enough I saw a Tickford being trailered up the M6 on Sunday, looked like a barn find.

    I saw them filming an episode up at Durham Cathedral last year, there were a couple of vintage cars (a Corsair and P5) there and some vintage commercials, and all of them had the identical tax disc! Must have been mass produced and then one placed in each vehicle, but they really should have had different months on them - although I am not sure if you would ever spot them once they are on TV.
