Classic Car Auctions says:

Have you seen one of these...What a find, this 1962 Land Rover 4x4 Fire utility truck, spent the majority of its life on a private industrial estate in Harlow purely as an assistance vehicle, and therefore the indicated mileage of just 10,000 could well be about right but is absolutely unwarranted.

Its current appearance tends to indicate that it has probably had little work done to it since it was new other than routine maintenance. It comes with a large number of old MoTs with the mileage increasing very slowly over the years except one which reads 30,000, possibly an error as it is out of sequence with the rest. (However the paint around the speedometer has been disturbed at some point so a new speedo may have been fitted) Internally the seats look like they may have been recovered but the dash has obviously been the resting place of many pairs of boots. In the rear, you will find the original fire hoses and other associated fitments confirming its authenticity. The car does appear to drive well and starts on the button, literally.

This is a very special vehicle and we believe will generate a lot of interest.
