MOTODROME ARE CLASSIC LAND ROVER SPECIALISTS -- SEE WEBSITE FOR FULL STOCKMotodrome offer this beautifully restored 1958 example of the ever-popular Land Rover Series One , this one an 88in soft top, finished in the classic Bronze Green..Fitted with it's original type 2.0 petrol engine, windowed soft top, and a matching set of 5 recent Avon 600x16 tyresInside it has 3 seats across the front, a pair of twin rear benches in the load area (making it a 7 seater at a pinch) and floor mats.Odometer reading 36000m, although as always this should be taken with a pinch of salt, although it may be correct.It lived in the dry climate of Australia all it's life until being repatriated to the UK by a specialist in 2015. The last owner, on acquiring it as a restoration project from said specialist in 2016, set about a full restoration with proper attention to detail and originality , which was completed in 2020, and I think the results speak for themselves -- it's about as close to as-new as it's likely to get. We have plenty of photos of it both 'as found' and undergoing restoration, which can be accessed via our websiteThe only spec. difference in an Australian Series 1 is the drop-down rear number plate and light ('54-'58 America and Australia), and it has a heavy-duty rear axle.The engine, gearbox and diffs have been fully rebuilt, it's been fully rewired, the chassis, bulkhead, outer panels, axles etc were all shot or bead blasted before being returned to as new standard. The previous owner reports there was 'zero rust in the chassis or bulkhead -- just plenty of Oz dirt to flush out'. I haven't yet found anything that jumps out as being old or worn -- even the speedo needle doesn't wave around.The body and paintwork are magnificent-- it's at least as good as it would have been when new in 1958. We have a massive stack of bills detailing what's been done -- I haven't added them up but I suspect it's an eye-watering total.It's recently visited a well-respected motor engineer (well-known to us) to have the inevitable 'shakedown' glitches rectified, and drives absolutely faultlessly. I've tried very hard to find something to criticise, but I just can't, it's that good. I think it's done around 300 miles since the full rebuild. Whilst due to it's age it qualifies for both free historic tax and MOT exemption, the previous owner has had it MOT'd since it's been back on the road, and it has MOT to March 2022, with no advisories. I seriously doubt you'll find a better example on the market currently. It will stand any inspection. On our own website, you'll find our usual 2 videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions.
