Morris Gutty 4WD.

Morris Gutty 4WD The Morris Gutty was the prototype for the Austin Champ. The only Gutty is now held by the Museum of Army Transport at Beverley.

4WD pictures Morris Gutty At the end of World War II the success of the Jeep MB had many armed forces wanting similar vehicles of their own. The British requirement was known as FV1800 and the Morris Gutty was built by Nuffield as a prototype to meet this specification.

Austin Champ prototype FV1800 Gutty The Gutty features a two-litre flat-four engine as initially proposed by Alec Issigonis for the Morris Minor. The engine drives through a 5-speed gearbox and a conventional 2-speed transfer case; the Champ subsequently took quite a different course. Suspension is independent, like the Champ. The body is of monocoque construction and the electrical system uses 12-volts.
