Want to inspire the next generation to love classic cars but don’t know how? We might have the answer…

This pint-sized Land Rover is going under the hammer at H&H Classics’ sale at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on 16 October and it could be just the ticket.

What’s more, this is no pedal-powered toy; it can move under its own steam thanks to a pair of 24V electric motors, giving its lucky next owner the freedom of the open road – or at least the back garden.

However, while it might have all the classic looks, this Landie is actually a Toylander kit built in 2012.

That said, it still has authentic touches such as a folding windscreen and tailgate, forward and reverse gears and a handbrake, and it has a top speed of 5mph.

The Lilliputian Landie has been renovated in the past year, meaning it’s now ready to bring pleasure to its next owner.

But that’s not all – it’s being sold with a charming, child’s-sized, vintage-style caravan that since being built last year has never been used.

With 1250mm of headroom, a play kitchen, bench seats, and a table which lowers to form a bed, it has everything to set little people’s imaginations free.

It can be towed by the Land Rover and, apparently, even two-up in the tow car, it still pulls well.

So if you think this classic combination is the Christmas present you’re looking for, don’t miss H&H Classics’ forthcoming sale.

They’re being sold as a pair without reserve – and you can check out the full lot list here.
