Cuthbertson Conversion

At some point in time the Australian Army trialed a tracked Land Rover. These vehicles were called Cuthbertson Conversions and were intended as a bolt on kit for a regular land rover, although they were a little more complex than that.

Apparently they were unstoppable off road, but their performance on paved surfaces was very poor.

This vehicle ended it's days as a criver training vehicle with adolly attached to lift the vehicle's tyres off the ground to break traction and sumulate driving in slippery conditions.

The vehicle only exists today as a bare chassis and is in the hands of REMLR member Kevin H.
