Lot 024: Land Rover Class 10 coil sprung 88 inch trialler

Classic Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (27 November 2013)

There can be no doubt that more than a little of Land Rover's recent commercial success can be attributed to the fact that its products have always been the most capable off-road vehicles in their class. The cataloguer can attest to this ability. When faced with the snows a year or so back, his trusty 1966 Series II was the only vehicle capable to pulling a stuck lorry out of difficulty, despite several modern pretenders having had a go at shifting it. It is not surprising therefore that in the popular sport of off-road trialling, the Land Rover is the most common mount, and the ARC (Association of Rover Clubs) is the leading light when it comes to organising events. This road registered Class '10' coil sprung 88 Trialler cost a fortune to build and has a spec list like the proverbial 'kitchen sink'. It was given a fresh logbook by the ARC in 2012 and is ready to use, being tax exempt and having an MOT until July 2014. The Rover V8 engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The coil-sprung chassis has everything needed to be competitive, including 4-pin diffs, fine spline half-shafts, front diff guard, QT steering arms and a recent set of Bronco tyres. Inside (if you can call it that) it has QT seats and pads, quality harnesses and for convenience a removable light bar and mirrors which can be taken off for each section and then replaced for road use. Serious fun, on or off-road, we've only got 'one life  so lets live it'!
