Description

This outstanding totally nut and bolt restored 1953 (last year of production) original 80 inch wheelbase Land Rover Series One is in outstanding condition throughout. Restored three years ago and only covered 315 miles since.

Originally UK supplied example is an unusual aluminium bulkhead vehicle. From the Land Rover history books it mentioned that the press tool broke at Fisher and Ludlow in Castle Bromwich where the steel bulkheads was made, to keep production going at Solihull a new fabricated version was manufactured in a short turnaround , making them an unusual and collectable model.

Sold new through Crabtree and Nicholl of Sheffield, the car still carries its original registration number.

The car was discovered in the 1980’s in the Doncaster region by enthusiast of the early 80 inch wheelbase. The previous owner has owned the car since November 1978.

The recent restoration was carried out by the world renown John Taylor for his collection, but owning to changing the collection around has decided to part with the car.

The 2 litre Land Rover series one late cars are very desirable and this would make an ideal collectors item
