A 1972 Land Rover once owned by the late, great saloon car champ Gerry Marshall is set to go under the hammer.The Series III 88in off-road vehicle was bought off Marshall in the late 1980s by fellow racer and friend, Kevin Kivlochan who has put the Landy up for sale with Brightwells on 19 July.
The Solihull icon still wears Marshall's BRDC badge on the back - along with decals for the Aston Martin Owners' Club and the Historic Sports Car Club.
Fans of the saloon car ace - famous for his sideways, on the edge antics in his Firenzas (christened Old Nail and Baby Bertha) as well as the V8 Holden-Repco Ventora 'Big Bertha' - will be amused to hear that the Landy still has the rev counter Marshall fitted in the interests of maximising performance.
The consignment follows the news that Sir Stirling Moss' Piaggio Vespa scooter and an Austin A35 van once owned by former F1 World Champion James Hunt are to sell at this year's Silverstone Classic on 23 July. (http://www.classicandsportscar.com/news/classic-car-auctions/stirlings-…
