1949 Land Rover Series One 80"
This fabulous 1949-built 80” Land Rover is the desirable ‘lights-behind-the-grille’ model. Unlike many early 80” on the market today this is a genuine UK car, still with its lovely UK reg and an amazing history file going back to the 1950s. Restored comprehensively and to a high standard in 1990-1991, it was never used at the time and was stored in perfect conditions for over 30 years. We have recently carried out a detailed recommissioning which has included the best of everything; new original 1948-pattern tyres, new Michelin inner tubes, new Undercover Covers hood, brake overhaul, carburettor restoration, new exhaust, new fuel pump, restored dynamo, reinstating the original early headlights and an extensive mechanical service followed by 250-mile test.
Now in regular reliable use a massive history file accompanies the 80, with copious invoices and paperwork dating back to the 1950s and many hand-written notes. Early Land Rovers in such lovely, ‘properly sorted’ wonderful driving condition and with extensive and genuine UK history are rare to the market. Selling on behalf of our client.
