Technical specifications, photos and description:
This Land Rover was recently featured on the front cover of "Legend" The Land Rover Series One Club's Magazine.
It is fitted with what is believed to be the original 2 litre engine and gearbox.
As you can see. the bodywork is in pretty good condition with just the odd age related ding. there is some filler in the wings. but there to fill dents not rust ! (they are aluminium)
The door tops have been fitted with new seals and runners and the old perspex windows have been replaced with toughened glass. I have not got around to repainting them as I rather like them as they are.
It has the benefit of having the very rare aluminium bulkhead which is in excellent condition. The chassis is also in very good condition and requires no welding.
The experts amongst you would have noticed that it is fitted with a 1951 "lights through grill". it is I believe the best looking grill. and worth considerably more than the 1952 item. (I would be happy to replace it with the correct grill if required).
Also fitted is a Aeroparts capstan winch (this alone is worth well over £1000). and free-wheeling hubs.
The original dynamo has been replaced with an alternator and the electrics have been converted to negative earth.
The seats are a recent replacement whilst the tilt is a little older but it is still in good condition.
The petrol tank has been replaced with a stainless steel item.
Recent work has included new brake cylinders and shoes all round. the rear springs refurbished and new rubber bushes fitted. a new coil. points. condenser and rotor arm.
In conclusion. this is a very sound 80 inch. but it must be remembered that it is well over 60 years old. so don't expect it to perfect in every way. it's no trailer queen. but has good old age patina.
I would recommend anyone buying a Series 1 to join the LRSO club. it is a great source of information and help.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
