We currently sell all of the Series II Land Rover chassis.
Richards Chassis was established around the manufacture of Series chassis. When Defender came of age and the chassis on the "New" vehicles started to require replacement most people thought the days of us still manufacturing Series were done. How wrong they were. Today, many years on from the first replacement chassis we built in 1984 Series chassis still make up 40% of our total production, which goes to show just how brilliant the original design concept was with no major design changes made until the introduction of the 90 in 1984. Minor refinements and improvements were carried out throughout the production life, some to improve the chassis, some to make it easier to produce. These changes are reflected in the Suffix Letter which is at the end of the chassis number. Series vehicles are now becoming very collectable and sale prices are reflecting this which why we now build replica Series 2 chassis to the same standard and attention to detail as our Series 1 chassis.
When we first approached them back in 2005 they were keen to listen and explore all options. This lead to three very individual Defender based race cars that dominated podiums across Europe in Trophy raid and winch challenge events from 2006 to 2015. These cars also attended events in the USA and Africa where again they showed their pedigree taking podium positions.
We are proud to work with Richards and still use their superb chassis’ to this day on tow cars, show cars and on some of our race cars. They are simply the best Landrover chassis money can buy.
