Tank-Treaded 1958 Land Rover 109 Series II

Land Rover with tank tracks

Tank-Treaded 1958 Land Rover 109 Series II. Designed by James A. Cuthbertson, this vehicle can tackle a variety of challenges, from adverse winter conditions in Greenland to war. The conversion required dropping the base vehicle—without the wheels—onto a sub-frame. This allows for movement and clearance of the treads.



The tyres were replaced with tracks. Each track has 40 steel shoes that drive the four wheels. Power steering was added to make it easier to steer this tank-like vehicle. In addition to its off-road capabilities, this vehicle can be driven on the street, as well. But, you won’t be winning any Grand Prix with this thing as the maximum speed is just 32 km/h. However, who cares when you have such an awesome vehicle?

  • I prefer this landy, it might not have tank tracks, a working passenger window or intact cup-holders, but I can drive it whenever I feel like it (which is often)

  • Must be a tad tricky when getting in and out
