Well, it's LHD...

Seems so unfair that the Brits can import a NAS Truck, but we can't import one of the same age to the US :-(

Cool, A NAS here in England. There are a few about. LRO just did a feature on a yellow 94 soft top with 19,000 miles thats here.

Thats got to be a 97 willow green LE isnt it? Got any more pics? Looks like its a P reg, so that means its a 97.

Its not a 50th as mentioned above.

Love to see more pics,

James

Hi,

The 50th Anniversary all came in Atlantis blue, with Pewter grey freestyle alloys. It had chequer plate and a NAS style rear step. Pic of mine attached.

Got the smaller tyres are its have a bourge warner chain drive transfer box fitted. So gone with them for the right ratios.

There were 385 made for the UK. Its almost the same as a 97 NAS. No bulkhead, V8 auto.
Apart from this limited edition they didnt make any V8 autos for the UK.

Here are some more pics: (sorry, some custom bling on it)

James, cool truck. You need a chrome NAS SD roof rack and ladder to finish it off.

HEALTH WARNING, please wear sunglasses when viewing these pics

The transfer box was done to change the ratio from 1:222 to 1:410. A Bourge warner box was used to keep it smooth and quiet. Have heard people who have just re-geared the box getting alot of whine. Not sure how different it is.

Whats the 97 NAS's geared at? They had to use the 1:222 for the UK to meet noise regulations

Hi Dave,

I spent hours rubbing down and polishing it myself. Had to do it to show off your quality engineering
