YOUR MODEL’S ACCESSORIES AND ADD-ONS
The 15cwt (762kg) Brockhouse Trailer was purpose-built from Land Rover components.
The tie-on canvas top was designed to protect both crew and cargo from changing weather.
The indispensable self-recovery winch was driven from the engine by the front power take-off (PTO).
The rear power take-off and winch are protected by a faithfully replicated guard plate.
Ideal for wintry mornings, the Clayton-type cabin heater was sold as an extra comfort from 1949.
Sitting on the wheelboxes was no fun, so these padded folding seats became a welcome extra.
Front-mounted traffi cators for signalling left- and right-hand turns became popular in the 1950s.
To free up the loadspace at the back, your spare wheel can be mounted on the bonnet plate.
Optional from early 1950, the hard top came with windows for export, but with plain sides for the UK.
TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR BROCKHOUSE TRAILER
First offered in 1949 as a “genuine accessory” of “inestimable use”, the Brockhouse Trailer was a popular carrier. Built in strong but light pressed steel, its maximum load was rated at 15cwt (762kg) under “normal conditions” and 12cwt (609kg) for “rough conditions”. A boon was the patented ball coupling for an easy link-up with the towing vehicle. The trailer also benefited from the same track as the towing Landy, so it could easily follow in its ruts – try it out on your model.
YOUR MODEL’S FUNCTIONS AND FEATURES
Lift the bonnet, open the windows, turn on the rear lights and park the trailer – your replica Series I comes with a full range of smoothly functioning features.
The front, rear and brake lights can be turned on and off. For the front and rear lights, toggle the switch by the driver’s seat. For the brake lights, press the brake pedal.
Sturdy coupling, replicating the original, lets you hook your trailer on and off at the rear.
Just unclip the fasteners to release the bonnet. Then prop the hood open on a hoodstick to inspect the detailed engine inside.
Your model’s four wheels are all fitted with realistic suspension for a smooth and springy effect whether stationary, turning or rolling along.
Pull down the drop-leg to park the trailer. Pull it up again when you want to move off.
Pull down the drop-leg to park the trailer. Pull it up again when you want to move off.
Swing open the driver’s door to turn the steering wheel right and left. You’ll find that you can steer the front wheels through 15 degrees.
The spare wheel can be snugly clamped at the rear between the two bench seats, or it can be clipped onto the bonnet’s die-cast wheel plate.
To pull down the windscreen, release its clips and lower it onto the bonnet’s authentic black buffers.
In this issue you assemble the bonnet of the iconic Land Rover Series 1 and construct the support for the spare wheel.
In this issue you assemble the headlights and fit the grille to the grille panel, as well as attaching the Land Rover nameplate.
