Land Rover: 80", 1951

Land Rover: Series 1 80", 1951 for sale

A Beautifully restored Land Rover Series 1, 80".

A fully reconditioned 1951 Land Rover, made in Solihull, England.

It was exported to Sydney, Australia. Where it worked until falling into disrepair. It was repatriated to the UK in the last 10 years, where it was rebuilt by a fanatical private classic car enthusiast.

Taking advice from people in the trade, who knew these early Land Rovers, the owner was able to achieve a fantastic standard. The original chassis was repaired, galvanized, and painted in the correct shade of deep bronze green. The original bulkhead was also repaired and painted at the same time.

All by Tom Pickford and his team at Vintage LR Co.

A new complete Body kit was bought from CKD body shop. And the engine was built by Tom Pickford to the same standards that were guided by the Reborn program.

Finished with the first owners name and location (Hall near Canberra, Act) and tare weight, this

80” Land Rover stands out from the crowd. Having completed 250 odd miles, this is a freshly restored car ready to use and enjoy.

Comes with a comprehensive folder of receipts and history, photos and LRO magazine article.

Buy with confidence. This vehicle is ready to use, and with the 75th anniversary coming up this year there will be many events to enjoy.

Land Rover: Rar early Series 2

SOLD (on behalf of a customer):
Land Rover, rare early Series 2

This very special Land Rover is for sale, from a personal collection.
It was bought in since 2015 when it was discovered in North Wales in very original condition, having been stored for many years.
Amazingly it has all its original mechanical components.
V5 document in my name.
Chassis number 221 was built on 21st April 1958 and despatched on 14th March 1958 to D Rosenfield Ltd, Cheetham Hill Road Manchester.
Registered in Stockport as NDB 430 which it still wears today.
Owned by a Coach Company in Rhyll from 1958 until 2015!
When Rover launched the new Series 2 they didn't have enough of the new 2. 25 engines ready, so carried on with the 2ltr Series 1 mechanicals from April until August 1958 for the 88" SWB until they ramped up production.
There were only 1702 of these 1418 chassis number 2ltr 88" SWB home market made, so few have survived especially with their original engines.
Approximately 70 are known about at the present time.
Original engine number, the details below.
I see these as the Holy Grail of Series 2's and have been lucky to have owned a few over the years!
When I acquired it I was lucky enough to get Guy Pickford to work on it and recommission it for the road.
At that time it had a new rear crossmember and LH bulkhead outrigger.
Also overhauled were the clutch hydraulics, all brakes, dynamo, starter motor, horn, wiper motors and lots more. New fuel tank as well.
New Under Cover Covers full Canvas in 2015.
New tyres and wheels shot blasted and painted in 2015
All original Elephant hide sprung seats.
Original dashboard clocks with the Series 1 warning lights
Original 3 bolt tailgate.
Original front galvanised valance.
I could go on but you get the picture!
Little used and dry stored. It is time to pass it on to someone to get it out and about!
The 2ltr petrol engine starts on the button and sounds nice.
The recorded mileage is approx 55, 000 and I believe this may be genuine although cannot prove it.
Original bulkhead in sound condition.
Original chassis with recent rear crossmember in sound condition.
It drives well and the gearbox is good with no jumping out of gear.
The paintwork is dull and aged but I rather like it as is.
This is a very rare early Series 2 that will look good at any show and is great fun for kids/ dogs/ logging etc!
Find another as correct as this!
