For sale through AB 4X4s Cleveland and on behalf of a customer is this delightful Series 1 Land Rover, 1953, 80". It is lovely and a remarkable survivor, with much originality and patina.
Chassis is excellent, with the rare and desirable ALUMINIUM BULKHEAD, (apparently due to the steel press breaking at the factory in this limited period for vehicles produced between 1952/1953)
This historic and characterful Landy, has retained much originality over the years including its original registration and correct period 'D lights' etc...The 2 litre petrol engine is the correct period 'Siamese Bore' engine and we believe the chassis/engine combination could be correct and original. The mileage is indicated at circa 45,000 although we cannot obviously verify this. In it's distant past the steering box was apparently upgraded to an improved Series 2/3. This was a popular upgrade in the past and very positive, and remains on the vehicle, although in the interests of originality this could of course be reverted back to the series 1 type. We do this for many customers and in fact did one just last week.
The vehicle has been in the custodianship of the last 2 owners who are both avid Land Rover enthusiasts. The present owner, who has a private collection of historic vehicles, has recently sent this Land Rover to a professional Series 1 mechanic and classic bodywork specialist to sympathetically and thoroughly recommission the vehicle. Consequently, the vehicle has had various works carried out (full written details on request) including, various mechanical parts, servicing, quality respray in correct cellulose bronze green, new quality hood, seats etc.. The vehicle starts well and 'on the button' although the engine has not been rebuilt at this stage, which the next owner may well decide to undertake in the future.
This historic vehicle has obviously led a 'charmed' life in respect of being dry stored for much of its life, which included in the county of Kent and then more latterly in it's life in Ireland and Derbyshire. This must explain the outstanding condition of the chassis and bulkhead etc..
This charming Series 1 is a rare and remarkable survivor and represents excellent value for money with these increasing daily in value.
We can arrange worldwide delivery or in the UK at £1 a mile one way. Viewing and test drive welcome. Call Anthony on 07947608966
