Re: 66 88 Searle Safari LHD

It is indeed a Searle Safari and going on the British registration plate looks like the second oldest that I am aware of. Due to the anti luce locks on the back I wonder if it was fitted with a tailgate and catflap? Lots of the missing / damaged parts are normal Land Rover items so should be no prob...

Re: Searle safari TPC 709F

I’m confused with this :stars:
It has badges on the wing which would suggest it was a sleeper, however there’s no cutaway bulkhead behind the seats for it to be a sleeper? Have we stumbled upon something else here?

Re: Doncaster July 1st 2018

Oh dear, I was hoping to come to this and was just about to enquire whether anybody was staying over on the Saturday night. I just assumed that it was a case of turning up like I did a few years ago however it appears I should have done my homework and checked beforehand. I was hoping to use this as...

Re: Searle Safari now home

Good to see you got it home ok Steve - looks like a great buy :cheers: Very nice. How does that awning work, please?

Re: Searle Safari

Hi Steve, Good luck with the viewing, hope it goes well :gold: Sorry I’m not aware of anyone who makes the benchs for the back, best bet would be to get some measurements and go from there. For the correct period fixings to make it look right look at a carawagon of a similar age as they changed over...
