For Sale: 1961 Austin Champ in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

The Austin Champ was a Military and Civilian Jeep like vehicle made in the 1950's. The Military versions were known by Truck, � ton, CT, 4x4, Cargo, FFW and Mk1. After about 30 prototypes were built they decided on what you see here. Most of these vehicles went to the British Military hence the FFW stands for Fitted For Wireless or Remote radio communications. These were also quite unique because of the indestructible Rolls Royce 4-Cylinder engines that were made for these. Another unique feature is the fact that these engines were basically water-proof. This technology also proved to be extremely expensive too complex and limited to just cross-country travel which it was extremely capable of. In-fact, it cost way more than the Land Rovers that were being built for the same thing.

The 1961 Austin Champ offered here was bought by the current owner in 1972 and was painted about 10 years ago. It was used as a cottage and run around vehicle. The Champ rides on LT215/85R16 tires on steel wheels. The Champ has full soft stop with doors as well. This is an excellent addition to any collection!
