Vehicle History


This Land Rover records just four owners, last since 2005 who were Mark Peacock Land Rovers the company who rebuilt the vehicle. Mark Peacock has been rebuilding and servicing landrovers for over 27 years and this was his own final project before retirement. C319 EME was featured in ‘The Landy' newspaper Nov 2018 on the front page with a 4-page story inside. I have managed to get a copy of this newspaper!!
