Ah, the 1970s. Back in those simpler times, Land Rovers were sold in Australia through Leyland which also sold Leyland tractors. So some bright spark at the advertising agency decided to combine the two as a tractor and 4×4 package designed to appeal to the man on the land.

Not sure what the agency creatives were thinking when they crafted this fine piece of theatre, but the classic Aussie slapstick routines certainly make great viewing today. This TV commercial must set some sort of record for a rag-top Land Rover getting seriously airborne, too!
