1965 Austin Gipsy G4 M10 Ex Ministry of Defence. Only 2,000 miles covered from new. Part of a Home Office "reserve" fleet purchased by the Government of the day (Harold Wilson's) as a contingency in case of a national emercency. All were stored in a hangar at a Midlands MOD airfield and exercised on the runway once a year. The Gipsy has a Heritage certificate showing the build date as 2nd May 1965. The recorded mileage is just over 2,000 which is correct. The 2199cc petrol engine came from the Austin A70 Hereford car. The Austin has the "Flexitor" rubber trailing arm suspension. Leaf springs and the London Taxi 2178cc diesel engines were options. Production ceased in 1968 with the British Leyland Motor Corporation merger which also encompassed the Rover car company. As Land Rover was a direct competitor and the preferred option the Gipsy was discontinued. This particular car has been in a private collection for many years and has not been offered for sale before. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of these vehicles with very few coming to market especially with such low mileage. The car starts on the button and drives very well and is in super condition and very very original. We think this is a car that any collector or enthusiast would be pleased to own and because of the rarity surely a sound investment. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery to mainland UK included in the asking price. Shipping can be arranged.
