Austin® Champ *Rare & Tax Exempt* (GEB)


For sale, Austin Champ in Deep Bronze Green (1967).

B60 Rolls-Royce Petrol Engine (3L). Will be supplied with 12 months MOT and will be MOT exempt thereafter. Tax Exempt.  Retractable Canvas hood. 

We are delighted to present for sale this Champ, which we sold previously to a collector.  The Austin® Champ was built to last, and they were used post war by the territorial army. In our opinion they were made to a much higher technical specification than the Land Rover® we have all come to love, and this makes a difference. The suspension on a Champ is superb, and speed bumps can be tackled without deceleration. The controls are all heavy pedals or steering wheel, so they feel lovely to drive. Then there's that lovely Rolls Royce engine and sturdy auxiliary components designed for reliability in battle.....they have good power and sound lovely out on the road. 

In addition to the good drive, the easy drop roof and screen are great for summer showers....the windscreen both tilts and opens so it can be run with wind in the face, or, if the weather looks threatening, with the front window open but up, so the roof can be easily closed. The lack of doors is not really noticed and it feels liberating when bombing along! Fuel economy is not too terrible in comparison to the Land Rover® Series, although no one buys one of these for the purposes of fuel saving!

We have prepared this Champ as we do all our stock, and been out for a test drive, and it feels lovely. It has been enthusiast owned and this seems evident in the drive! You need not be an enthusiast to own one of these though, as they are still "old school" enough to maintain.....however, we have never had the opportunity to work on them, as they have never given any trouble!

If you are looking for a four wheel drive, perhaps with that jeep look, but you want English not American - something to enjoy in the summer with low maintenance and a sound investment, then we suggest you join the elite club to which we also belong - a Champ owner!
