"1985 Highlander 6, powered by the 5.3-litre, 12-cylinder Jaguar engine, which apparently only found eight eager customers"

- I wonder how many of those 8 are still about?

These were a conversion offered by Williams Town. It's based on a Mini Moke.

 

 

 

So you took them a Mini Moke and they gave you that monstrosity?

 

or they looked at the design and thought they could come up with something better (and failed) ??

From what I understand, you took them a Mini Moke, and they built this on top of it.

No! That would be like trying to make an orange out of a potato -they're completely different animals.

 

I will have to check with a friend who built a Six but as far as i can make out it was a low-slung steel floorpan mounted in a tubular square steel frame, acres of glass & aluminum for all-consuming dehydration, & optional lower fibreglass body panels.

(the donor vehicle for the suspension/running gear/brakes/electrics could be whatever you wanted- Mini, 1100/1300, Moke etc).

I have a strange deja-vu feeling about this car, like I've seen it at a show when I was a kid, or it was on a TV show or something. Hmm. 

 

 

i know what you mean, but i can't figure out if those memories relate to the car or the magazine of the same name !!

 

Did the one you're thinking of have a pope in the back?

And here's proof of the Lego connection!

 

 

That back axle seems to be a bit too far back in the wheelarch..

Perhaps he's hiding a couple of choirboys under his cassock

.....you never know when you might have to do an emergency mass.
