The EBay Christ I fancy that 4x4 + its cheap thread

Recommended Posts

Very nice and very well known but possibly not entirely road legal without SVA/IVA due to:

Chassis reworked to use all 14 inches of travel on suspension and to lower the vehicle stance.
Strengthened and lightened chassis

The first bit would suggest arched chassis work over the axles, the second suggests bits removed from chassis?

it has to be road legal to compete in various rallies in UK, Porlock toll road is a public road so any rally car using it has to drive on normal public roads to access both ends of the stage of the rally [somerset stages]

I reckon that's pretty good value for a racer, given a lot of the Ultra4 stuff is $400k+....

It looks like my landy is valuable, or is that just wish full thinking?

I'd be terrified of driving that past a VOSA check or even a traffic cop, ticks all the boxes for trouble!

If I'd paid thirty grand for that thing there would be a more scary thing to be frightened of than VOSA or the police!

I think it's safe to say the only things S11 on that is the plate and some panels!

Not even the plate, that's off a Leyland something or other - not dodgy at all! :rolleyes:

No hang on, if it is on an "A" plate that dates from 1963 Yet it is registered as a 1959 Leyland which pre-dates suffixes by 4 years.

 

As the saying goes "I wouldn't touch it with yours, mate"

Not strictly true, there were blocks of numbers used after cherished transfers, I had a 1959 series 11 which a PO had taken the index and it had ended up on an ACC *** A plate which was perfectly legitimate.

Notwithstanding all the other issues of course.

I mean...I see what he was trying to do.... And some bits are quite nice....

I was thinking to myself... Not bad for a few grand, good base to start with.... But 18.5K! :lol:
