If you want an off-road experience, a serious off-road experience, you should think about this Land Rover 109 Series 2 “Cuthbertson”.
Not so much a 4×4 as an 8×8, the Cuthbertson is as rare as the proverbial rocking horse doodah. You never ever see one, let alone find one coming up for sale.
But this beast, a hybrid workhorse, can be found nestled in among the sleek and sexy Ferraris, Jaguars, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and Lagondas in the sale brochure for the next auction organised by Bonhams at Goodwood.
The rugged and raw 1958 Land Rover 109 Series 2 Cuthbertson is a fun, eye-catching, durable and tough head-turner of the highest order.
The design comes from James A Cuthbertson Ltd of Biggar in Lanarkshire, and it is built for heavy winter weather use.
This Land Rover will traverse the most inhospitable terrain
The ride features a four-track kit that supplies the ability to traverse even the most inhospitable terrain while the motor provides plenty of power to get you where you want to go, whenever you want to go there, come hell or high water.
Built and first registered in September 1958, a “proper” series 2, needing no TAX or MOT, the original vehicle was despatched on September 12 1958 to SMT Sales and Service Company Limited of Carlisle.
The Cuthbertson conversion was carried out the same year, and from there it has travelled the world only returning to the UK in 2016.
It has clocked less than 4,000 miles, has been beautifully restored and has a fantastic paint job. Pre-auction estimate is £50-60,000.
