[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Arriving in with us today, our 1966 Austin Gipsy.

Spent many years right here in Ipswich with original receipts from Firman’s Garage on Norman Crescent dating back to 1982.

This 4×4 utility vehicle was originally manufactured in 1962. It is one of four that were originally built for Heathrow Airport to transport VIP’s to and from the planes.

It was not registered for the UK roads until 1st December 1966.

Comes with lots of fantastic, local history and even the original workshop manual. The previous owner drove her daily and it came to us still with 7 months MOT.

As with all of the wonderful classics on the road today, it comes with it’s own unique and intriguing story. There are images online of The Beatles being transported in one of the four Gipsy’s used by Heathrow Airport but unfortunately no one has been able to identify which of the four was used.

Maybe one day, someone somewhere may be able to find out the truth![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”9874,9875,9876,9877,9878,9879,9880,9881,9882,9883,9884,9885,9886,9887,9888,9889,9890,9891,9892,9893,9894,9872″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
