The 'Ninety' and 'One Ten' succeeded the Series III Land Rovers in 1983/1984 and differed with longer chassis, coil spring suspension and a 5-speed gearbox.
This Ninety marked the fortieth continuous year of Land Rover production in 1988. The plan was for 40 'celebration' vehicles but a strike at the Solihull factory led to the cancellation after just two had been built.
E40 KDU was actually built at the end of 1987 and completed to a special specification with a khaki soft-top, all-over Bronze Green and under the bonnet was the latest diesel turbo engine.
The second 40th anniversary model was converted into a floating advertisement and 'sailed' at Cowes Week in 1989. It now also resides in the Museum.
