    Leyland Bros. Cape trip.

    Hi all,
    Our Club, Land Rover Owners Club of Tasmania, has been trying to source a video of the original wet season trip to cape York by the Leyland Bros. If anyone has a copy they'd be prepared to loan (or whatever) we'd be eternally grateful. Thanks in anticipation,
    Pat Murray,
    President.

    There is no youtube clips of this trip . Was in 1971, I think and involved a 108 LWB and a 108 flat tray. Polystyrene pontoons encased in weldmesh were used to cross major rivers. Goodyear Terrra tyres were also utilised.

    You should have asked Arthur & Toots Holzheimer, Peninsula Transport, how they got up there on a regular service using Leyland Hippos. Toots in a floral dress and big blucher boots.
