Land Rover Series 1 (88") Canvas Top, 2 Litre Petrol, Historic Vehicle Road Tax & MOT Exempt.
First Registered 25/03/1958, the vehicle is almost 60 years old and as the Series 2 was launched in April 1958 this must be one of the last of the Series 1 model.
Whilst long term service history is limited, over the past 3 years a lot of work has been carried out which is listed below. It starts, stops, runs very well hence it is very usable.
The 4 wheel drive system works well. The canvas top, which is on a galvanised frame is in good condition with no tears.
Work Carried Out :-
Professionally fitted Brand New Bulkhead, Rear Tub Re-mounted, engine and brake system serviced, new clutch fitted, new wiring loom fitted, new stainless steel exhaust and manifold, new dynamo, new fuel pump, new petrol tank. new rectifier and new front & rear crankshaft bearings.
The vehicle was bought by the vendor as a retirement project but continuing contracts has left him with no time to finish the job and he feels very strongly that the vehicle should be used and enjoyed rather than stood idle.
Small plate welding to rear of the chassis just in from the passenger side, Speed cable to fit (provided), Front grill panel to repair, windscreen wipers blow a fuse,and occasionally the engine is slow to start when up to temperature.
Overall the main work has been completed and the bodywork is sound. The front chassis is solid and was subject to a clean up when the engine was out for the bulkhead replacement. The stands well and look great so go on, spoil yourself and bring the fun back into your life
