Dan (dirtydiesel ) built that for Steve Lloyd of Midland Catering supplies close to 15 years ago, last time I saw it in the flesh it was red. Kinda ahead of its time really - tube frame buggy, four link front and rear, big v8, portals, 37" boggers, all at a time when the competition was full bodies 90's on simex before anyone had heard of a trayback

Yes, I competed against him on the argyl forest challenge. Would love to know the weight of it though.

Ready to race I'd guess somewhere between 2500kg and very heavy

...not so heavy it won't fly .... I saw it in Steve's hands at Tixover on a challenge timed section get about 10' of air under it at the top of a hillclimb that

not many others got up by driving only ......sort of reminded me of Icelandic formula stuff

A nice truck for sure

cheers

I didn't even click the link, but compared the item number to what I guessed it would be....and I was right!

I have never seen one as nice as that before. What do we reckon it will make £12k to £15k?

So that's what mine should look like but hey mine was considerably cheaper so I'll have to work upto that standard. Might be a long road but mine's older some it must be worth more yeah right. There was one as nice as that recently only difference was it had a td not the original 2.25n/a it went for £5000 I was trying to raise the cash but didn't make it.

Was that on eBay or somewhere sensible?

Yes I saw that TD

For me it would have to be the V8 though, would only ever be a toy so the fuel cost would not matter.

There is something about those early 110's. For me it has to be blue/limestone with the separate door tops. How on earth has a 110 managed to have such a sheltered life?!
