Litter Austin Gipsy 's

Austin Gipsy
His 'brother' will also no longer make it as a 4x4 in this world ...

Touring through the British landscape in Buxton, County of Derbyshire, in a bit of a 'messy yard' as it is called, attention is drawn by two fraternally leaning against each other 4 × 4s. Elderly Land Rovers?

No, they are two Austin Gipsy 's. And they have been at the mercy of the elements for a little longer than a few days. It is well nibbled. Restoration is no longer feasible. Too far away. Our conversation partner, listening to the name Percy, has found them in a garden. Of a building that was put up for sale by the heirs after the owner's death. Both Austin Gipsy 's have a still valid license plate. After asking an asking price for this litter of a thousand pounds sterling, a questioning look followed. No, your editorial team was a 'this timetime waster'because the interest in something like that was level zero. Had to also be picked up ... and then? No chance for these classics, at least in the Netherlands ... The engine of such a Gipsy would in principle be suitable for mounting in an Austin-Healey 100. The model with the four-cylinder engine referred to by many as 100 / 4. Only the cylinder capacity would then have to be drilled from almost 2,2 liters to 2.660 cm3

Pretty 'crispy' and therefore no longer economically justified to restore
Little sad view
