What in the world should Sam Glover get for his tour?

Practical Classics (UK) - - TEAM ADVENTURE - Paul and Melanie Gough, Spain

In the Au­gust is­sue, I read through the list of ‘must haves’ for Sam Glover’s planned ad­ven­ture. There was only one op­tion: the Lada Niva, a car de­signed for this pur­pose, as all afi­ciona­dos will con­firm. Then the bomb­shell: the car had to be Bri­tish. My wife and I be­gan to list some pos­si­ble con­tenders. An early Land Rover is a ‘cliche’ and not very comfy. An Austin Champ? It’s ca­pa­ble, but parts may be a prob­lem . A Tri­umph Her­ald es­tate? Sam could sleep in it, but would it be suf­fi­ciently rugged?

Then the light­bulb mo­ment: a Se­ries III Mor­ris Ox­ford! Tough, com­fort­able, sim­ple and ex­tra ground clear­ance could eas­ily be achieved. Per­haps the Hin­dus­tan parts bin could help?
