Very rarely nowadays does a series 1 trials vehicle come to the market as most have been altered back to standard specification. If memory serves me correctly, the V6 conversion was popular in the 1980s and carried out by Steve Parker Landover’s in Rochdale Lancashire, though we cannot state that this is one of those. Quite evidently a well-executed conversion with power steering as an added bonus. Been in storage for nearly two decades so will need fully recommissioning as currently not running or driving . Upon inspection, the chassis is in remarkably good condition with surface rust only to the rear crossmember, dumb irons and outriggers and the Bulkhead is solid.

A great project that would be a crowd stopper when done and re-kindle memoires for many of the days of the AWDC events in the 70s and 80s.


Estimated at £4,000 - £5,000
