TV Land Rover for £10k

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Fans of the BBC’s now axed day­time TV show The Coro­ner could own the lead char­ac­ter’s 1977 Land Rover Se­ries III for less than £10,000.

The BBC can­celled the crime drama af­ter its sec­ond se­ries, which prompted the pro­duc­tion com­pany to get in touch with Anglia Car Auc­tions to put it un­der the ham­mer.

It will go on sale at Anglia’s auc­tion this Satur­day (17 June) with a re­serve of be­tween £7000 and £9000.

The show starred Claire Goose as sin­gle mum Jane Kennedy who re­turns to her fic­tional home­town of Lighthaven in south Devon to in­ves­ti­gate mur­ders. Coro­ner Kennedy’s Land Rover can be seen in in the back­ground of shots across lo­ca­tions in Dart­mouth, Torquay, and Broad­sands Beach, Paign­ton.

Fans of the TV show have al­ready launched a pe­ti­tion urg­ing the BBC to re­con­sider its de­ci­sion not to re­new

The Coro­ner for a third se­ries. It has at­tracted more than 2288 sig­na­tures.

Auc­tion man­ager Guy Snelling says: ‘While it’s not a first-class restora­tion it’s in re­ally good shape with an MoT un­til April 2018.’

TV drama Se­ries III is be­ing auc­tioned with a £7-9k es­ti­mate.
