As expected, the immaculate restored Series II Cuthbertson fetched the highest price at the sale of 30 Land Rovers that John Craddock Ltd and Exmoor Trim rescued from Norway earlier this year. An internet bidder from Germany paid £46,100 for the immaculate tracked vehicle in the auction at Cannock on September 18.
Prices varied for the Land Rovers, with some people getting bargains – like the 4x2 Series I that fetched just £500 – to the 1967 APGP that reached £27,100 in a fierce internet battle. A tidy unrestored 1964 Series IIA hard top with 33,000 on the clock went for £7600.
Prices achieved for the variety of ex-fire service vehicles were probably lower than expected due to their specialist interest, with the immaculate ex-Cheshire Service Carmichael FC achieving £5100, but others going for under £2000.
