Forward control makeover gives rusty Discovery new life
Everyone knows how badly the body on a Discovery 1 rots, but the chassis and mechanicals seem to last forever. So, how about re-purposing the chassis, giving it a forward control driving position and a massive loadbed? That's what Rotodama have done with their Rediscovery.
The cab is a tubular-framed design and all the panels - including the glass - are flat for ease of replacement and are inset to reduce the likelihood of damage. The loadbed is a significant 12 foot x 6 foot and has a 1000kg payload.
With loads of mechanically-sound Discoverys languishing in farmyards, this could just be the conversion to breathe new life into them.
