Picture of SWB from Land Rover

Land Rover SWB.

More information on this Land Rover:

Photographed in the old South Side Hangars at Manchester Airport (Ringway) in 1994. It had been used by Northern Executive Aviation (NEA) who operated an air charter business at Manchester. Where is Land Rover 5911 UP now? These hangars were torn down not long after to make way for the second runway at Ringway. Where did the Landy go?

This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Land Rover above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular SWB would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Land Rover SWB, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the SWB, and similar old Land Rovers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
