1973 Ford Escort MK1 RS2000 Replica Full blown Clubman specification narrow body Escort; built by Silverstone Rally School and only 1,000 miles since; unused in competition; two owners from new £18,260

Had one of these to clubman spec, sold it to buy an engagement ring :wtf:

Best long term investment you ever made Rod

1952 Land Rover Series I 80" Rare aluminium bulkhead model; sympathetically restored in 2012 with new galvanised chassis, new suspension, stainless steel fuel tank etc; free-wheeling front hubs; large history file; enthusiast owned; a cherished example

Had one.

Had two and a Scout model which was only rear wheel drive, with a solid beam front axle

1966 Land Rover Series IIA 88" Stunning fully restored example; photos to prove; galvanised chassis; original wheels included; one of the best; ready to go £14,410

Got one, my son and me.

Rebuilt 2.250 diesel model from the ground up, should have kept it ?

1975 Land Rover Series III 88" Tidy old Series truck with recent remedial works, new starter motor and seat belts; 2.25 petrol; ideal entry to Landy ownership

Had one, 1973 year

Would buy a clean straight one anytime if I could find one

1966 Mini Moke Original English Moke; mildly tuned with 1275cc motor; 10-inch discs brakes; alloys; bucket seats; harnesses; roll bar £12,100

Know where there's one of these just sat rotting, and he won't sell it.

Same here retired garage owner has one sitting in his garage under dust sheets, has not been touched in over 30 years

1972 Triumph TR6 Full fat 150bhp model; 25k miles on rebuilt engine; overdrive; polybushed suspension with adjustable shocks; rev limiter; six-branch manifold; alloy rocker cover; electric cooling fan; leather seats; roll bar etc £14,410

Had a white one, couldn't afford to insure it so never used. :cry:

Run one on a Traders Policy for a friend who also could not afford his own insurance because he worked in the entertainment business

1970 Volkswagen Type 2 Camper Just two owners and 55,300 miles from new; supplied by Bengry Motors of Leominster; Richard Holdsworth 3-berth conversion; new engine in 1986; a local van for local people

Had several, used to buy, renovate and sell them

Any rust free VW camper in good order is always going to be valuable goodie
Thanks
Phil

Adam, it is a dual use machine :think: :idea: could be a last resort deterrent with noisy or troublesome neighbours :?: got a feeling that this little beauty would put the fear of the devil turning up in anyone :problem: if this remote jem came trundling up their driveway :o :shock: :lolno:
Would be like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse turning up :wtf: to let this jem loose on a well manicured front garden :lolno:

Adam, found this 3 wheeled mini crane in a friends yard, right now it's a 2 wheeled crane as the whereabouts of the 3rd wheel is a mystery right now :?: absolutely of no good whatsoever on rough ground but could be the basic lump of steel for a project :think: for someone with vision and a yearning to put spare time into a winter project :wtf:

Image

Thanks
Phil

P.S. It is called a "Neal Runabout" genuine one owner from new, low hours, and unmolested by any modifications :shock: also has the benefit of all pre H & S regulations, hardly any guards and no safety fail-safes :problem:

:think: :think: :think: might make a novel garden ornament with a quick shotblast and a tasty paint job :?:

Speaking of making things, our mini skid is maturing nicely

I'v built a timber grab, seat, rear bucket/attachment carrier, and fitted an adjustable drop plate
