Roadless Traction unveils 109

This mad looking Land Rover was the brainchild of Roadless Traction in the 1950s and built for the Forestry Commission. Despite having a fleet of Series 2 Land Rovers, the Forestry Commission found that its 4x4s wouldn't reach everywhere they needed to go. Machinery Research added tractor wheels - 109 inches, hence the name - and removed the front wings to accommodate the  wheels. Sold from 1961, the 109 was officially approved by Rover and capable of reaching 30mph. Fuel economy wasn't so great though, with an optimistic claim of 10mpg.
