Land Rover tank!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Is a Sabre light re­con­nais­sance tank a bit too blasé for your lik­ing? Well, Bon­hams has the tank for all of your needs.

It’s sell­ing this 1958 Land Rover 109 Se­ries 2 ‘Cuth­bert­son’, com­plete with its own tank tracks, at its Goodwood Re­vival auc­tion on 9 Septem­ber. With an es­ti­mate of £50k-60k, the Cuth­bert­son is road-reg­is­tered and road le­gal. The seller sug­gests it would be per­fect for use on an es­tate.

First reg­is­tered on 8 Septem­ber 1958, it was despatched on 12 Septem­ber to SMT Sales and Ser­vice Com­pany Lim­ited, Carlisle. The Cuth­bert­son con­ver­sion was car­ried out later that year, and from there it has trav­elled around the world, re­turn­ing to the UK in 2016.

Ve­hi­cle chas­sis and en­gine num­bers are match­ing, the speedome­ter read­ing of 3981 is be­lieved to be ac­cu­rate and James A Cuth­bert­son Lim­ited in Big­gar, La­nark­shire, still holds records of the build.
