    It means your vehicle is well, um, different. It doesn't mean that it can't have a good life, though.

    Did Special Vehicles make them? I've seen the Nene and Twisted variety.

    Ive got the same on my 110. It was an ex LR works vehicle. Apparantly it had the roof resprayed from white to galway green, and had alloys fitted after it left the production line. It seems there's quite a few 110s like that kicking about.

    Our "electricity board" cherry picker 110/130's have these badges, basically its not a standard factory vehicle as far as I know, so a special "magic" section at LR works its wisdom to produce "things" and sticks a badge on it.

    heres the reply with some numbers removed for security

    Dear Mr Harrison,

    Thank you for your enquiry about your vehicle.

    The contract number xxxxx is liked to the vin number SALLDHAS78Axxxxxx and it is a genuine vehicle that come through Special Vehicles.

    The vehicle is a 110 Hard Top in Alaska white and the only Special Vehicles option that was fitted, was an Upper Bulkhead Protection Panel.

    &#8203;I hope this answers your query.


    Best regards
    Martin Witcomb
