A Land Rover owned by the late racing legend Gerry Marshall, and still sporting a series of ‘optional extras’ that signify his infectious enthusiasm for both cars and competition, will be auctioned at Historics Summer sale at Brooklands on Tuesday 19 July.
The 1972 Series III workhorse has stickers detailing Marshall’s various memberships, interests and passions, such as the Aston Martin Owners Club, the British Racing Drivers Club and Historic Sports Car Club amongst others that reflect Marshall’s racing credentials of 625 race wins across various formulas, spanning 40 years. It is a short wheel base, 88in Station Wagon model with the addition of a competition rev counter, freewheeling hubs, later wing mirrors and aftermarket wheels. Currently owned by a close family friend, this reliable Land Rover has spent its most recent years garaged, seeing only limited use outside of the annual MOT test and offers in the region of £4,000-6000 are anticipated for this famous example of the Series III Land Rover.
