My Sandrail is done and running great, I just sold my business and will be selling the 'rail shortly, so looking for both a new project and a new business (I get bored when things are working!). I have been kicking around the idea of a mostly open frame, off-road/mad max styled road vehicle as my next project for a while, specifically thinking of using a ladder chassis based vehicle that I can re-body to comply with the 8-point rule and avoid the complexity and cost of an IVA - plus keeping the build simple. Something like this: loosely based on the look of this style of US rock bouncer. It occurs to me that there might be a market for kits to make up that sort of vehicle, so it is important that I get the choice of donor right from the start in case I want to turn it into a business - as oppose to just buying whatever turns up on the island. This would be a strictly production business not a custom build business, so one donor, one kit. Yes it has/is being done with Beetle floor pans but now way too expensive for donors. Ideally the donor should be plentiful, not likely to acquire classic status any time soon, or have a "scene tax". Must be separate chassis of course and cheapish around the 300-1000 mark for whole cars (MOT failed/crashed/rusted body etc) but with an active spares market for re-sale of unused bits. At the moment, with previous ideas from @Baloo who knows loads about these things, and wading through lots of on-line information, I am looking at- Vitara - up to 05 (the little Jimmy's seem to be too popular!) Frontera - not sure how plentiful these are but priced well. Range Rover / Discovery - which I read is a low spec Range Rover on the same chassis - not sure. Land Cruiser Kia Sportage Any other suggestions or useful info please - I don't know much about old 4x4's but I know that some people on here know loads!
