Lot 315 - 1992 Reynolds Boughton RB44
|Odometer reading||3,679 miles|
|Estimate||£5,500 - £7,500|
|Result||Sold - £6,272|
In June 1988, the Ministry of Defence commissioned an order totalling £25m for Reynolds Boughton to build 846 heavy duty utility trucks. The RB44 has a conventional ladder chassis and live axles. Drive passes from the gearbox via a short propshaft to a Reynold Boughton transfer case, thus using a full-time, four-wheel drive system with diff lock. The transfer case has two power take offs for driving auxiliary equipment.
The interior of the RB44 is similar to a modern conventional van with the exception of the additional controls for the four wheel drive system. Sitting on 34 inch tyres, this is quite a large vehicle with good ground clearance. Powered by a 109hp Perkins diesel engine, the top speed is just under 70 miles per hour.
This is the general service version RB44 featuring a canvas top, drop tailgate and bench seating in the rear for six people. Put into service on 27th February1992 and having covered only 3679 miles, this Reynolds Boughton RB44 is available at a fraction of the cost when new. Currently not registered for road use, the necessary paperwork can be supplied to enable this to happen if required.
Interested parties should note that UK VAT will be added to the final hammer price.
