This week’s story highlights a vintage donation manufactured in England and donated to support KCUR in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s easy to donate a car to KCUR or to your favorite public radio station. Keep reading to learn about this unique vintage vehicle, and how you can support the stations you love.
1978 Land Rover Series III
Land Rover is synonymous worldwide with offroading, and this particular car sure looks like it could drive up a mountain or through a desert.
The Land Rover was initially designed as a working vehicle, a sort of tractor/car hybrid that would be as useful on the farm as on the road. Though it doesn’t look aerodynamic, it sure looks sturdy and capable of all sorts of travel.
Two brothers drove a Series III in the first east-west crossing of Australia by car. It’s hard to imagine a better car to travel the Australian outback. Adventurous drivers can even outfit the Series III with up to three gas tanks to avoid pesky fuel stops.
Land Rovers can do exactly what the name suggests, traversing terrain that a lesser car couldn’t manage.
Perhaps the most unexpected capability of this car? Supporting KCUR as a donated vehicle!
