What would we do with a right-hand-drive 1972 Land Rover pickup with canvas on the back? We have not idea whatsoever — maybe just roll into the closest KOA, throw some shrimp on the barbie and sleep out under the stars. Either that, or look for a military vehicle convoy to jump in because this thing would look at home there, too.

Regardless, this pickup would get lots of attention and seems like it would be a blast to bomb around in. It's for sale in Oregon on Craigslist is being billed as a very original, almost untouched 49-year-old survivor. We're not sure we've ever seen one quite like it person, which is reason enough to want it. It's equipped with a 2.25-liter petrol engine, which is a inline little-four cylinder probably good for about 75 hp. It's got a 3/4 canvas top, new tires and brakes, "period correct NATO wheels", stone guards on the headlights and a "beefy heavy duty Salisbury rear end, similar strength to a Dana 60. These Series trucks were bred for farm work!", according to the seller.
