Vehicle Description

We are delighted to offer this very rare 1958 Land Rover Series 2 Cuthbertson tracked vehicle. Cuthbertson was an early manufacturer of rubber tracks, dating back to World War 2, and designed the first endless rubber belt. This led to many further developments based on applications for his invention. Including half tracks, the unique 'water buffalo' and the Land Rover conversions specifically for farmers forced to work in an uneven and hostile landscape.
This Series 2 Land Rover has one of James A Cuthbertson LTD'S tracked conversions complete with Power steering. Each track is 12-inches wide and has 40 steel shoes which drive four wheels on skinny tyres.
The modifications mean it now sits at more than eight-feet high, with the greater ground clearance enabling it to wade rivers and travel through swampy marshes with ease. The tracks were fitted in 1958 when the vehicle was new. A 2,286 cc petrol engined model 109 wheelbase, it was built on 8th September 1958 and dispatched on the 12th September to SMT sales and service company. It was given the reg number NHH 297. It is a very early Series 2. Production began in 1958 of the Series 2. This Cuthbertson was bought and put into a private Norwegian collection before being sold in 2011 to a German businessman.
This is the perfect investment Land Rover. Supplied with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate. If you have any questions please do get in touch.
