Vintage Land Rovers restored by Lanny Clark have become a staple of the Orvis holiday catalog.
This year’s offering is truly bittersweet as it is Lanny’s last. After more than four decades of restoring Land Rovers, Lanny is looking forward to a well-earned retirement. Restored with only 500 break-in miles on the odometer, this 7-passenger station wagon features a more powerful version of the original four-cylinder engine, upgraded, dual-circuit power-assist disc/drum brakes, an overdrive allowing a wider range of gearing, and the unusual option of air-conditioning.

The original owner of this Model 88 took delivery in 1963 at the Land Rover® factory in Solihull, England. It was subsequently driven around the British Isles and Europe before being shipped to a farm in Maryland. Years of reliable service followed, including a trek across Canada to Alaska, and back, when the vehicle was still new.
