Land Rover Series 1 80" 1951 1600cc Lights Through The Grille Original matching number 1600cc engine. Original Buff style log book present. Complete with it's original Scottish registration number SO 9581. The vehicle is very original and has a good bulkhead and chassis. The body panels are very straight for such an old example. There are some imperfections in the paint work in places however it adds to the character of the vehicle and reflects it's age well. The vehicle drives well with no engine or transmission issues. The last owner had the vehicle for 15 years. The vehicle was subject to a body of chassis restoration 12 years ago. The history file notes that the vehicle is believed to have started it's life in Scotland with the AA. There is yellow paint present in places especially around the cappings so although we haven't got any photographs to prove the ex AA use we believe it to be highly likely and will do more research and check the dispatch records. From the MOT history we can see that the vehicle has covered 2000 miles since 1989 and so has clearly had very little use. Current mileage is 77,695 miles in 1989 it was 75,338 miles although we can't prove this to be the genuine mileage it is more than likely to be correct given the vehicles condition. There are also tax discs dating back to December 1973. This is an ideal vehicle for somebody who is looking for a good usable example. http://www.williamsclassics.co.uk Try our new free valuations service http://www.williamsclassics.co.uk/valuations/ Any trail or inspection welcome, Credit and debit cards accepted, Delivery can also be arranged, P/X welcome, Any enquires please call 078255 87155.
This 88" Series 1 is in superb condition, following a comprehensive chassis up restoration by specialists, during which all bodywork was removed, stripped and repaired as necessary. The bumper and window frames were galvanised, and all the body panels prepared and painted individually prior to final assembly. The 2.0-litre petrol engine was fully overhauled by historic engine specialist Agra Engineering and the gearbox stripped and checked. The list of new items fitted includes: clutch assembly, exhaust system, brakes, front springs and hood. The car has also been fully rewired with the correct period-style wiring loom. Very few miles have been covered since the restoration was completed in 2014. According to the Heritage Certificate, chassis 116-8-00655 began life with a diesel engine but has since been converted to petrol power and performs exceptionally well. The history file includes detailed invoices and extensive photos of the restoration work, together with magazine articles featuring the car.

The engine does run when fed direct to the fuel pump from a jerry can. A new exhaust system has been fitted which includes bolt on exhaust heat shields. The chassis and bulkhead do need extensive repairs however a new bulkhead can be purchased for £1,200. This vehicle would be suitable for a full restoration or a mechanical and structural restoration and then the bodywork could be left alone and go back on the vehicle, retaining an original patina look whilst driving like a fully restored vehicle. The last owner has owned the vehicle since 2014 previously to that the keeper before owned it from 1983 so it has been in long term ownership spanning 31 years. Only 3 owners are recorded on the log book it is probably more due to the change over from the Buff log book.

A rare opportunity to acquire an exceptionally restored and very desirable 1949 Land Rover Series 1 80". R8665*** chassis number this vehicle is a genuine 1949 model finished in the correct Sage Green. When Maurice Wilks, Rover's chief designer, came up with a plan to produce a light agricultural utility vehicle in 1947 he would have no idea that his design would become an icon and launch a whole new industry sector. The original Land Rover was presented in sage green with a canvas roof and revolutionised rural transport. As an engineering marvel it can still outstrip its modern counterparts, and the Series I rightly belongs in the Motoring Hall of Fame. Hugely successful globally, improvements were made throughout the production run. This vehicle has covered less than 500 miles since restoration. Vehicles like this don't often come on the market in fact the most recent vehicles to be of the same quality were sold in the last 18 months at Silverstone Auctions for £38,250 and £39,375 respectively. A very rare opportunity indeed. More recently a 1948 example sold for £47,250. Therefore, this vehicle represents good value for money. BODYWORK It has had new wings from Keith Wadsworth, doors, tailgate etc. The rear tub unlike most Land Rovers is remarkably straight and original in the back and doesn't show any signs of hard use and is fitted with matching rear bench seats. The bulkhead is exceptionally solid and in great condition. It has the export vent at the top of the bulkhead which allows you to let fresh air straight into the cab which is great on a hot day. The chassis is in good condition and is original and has been restored to a high standard having had any necessary outriggers. It has then been finished in the correct sage green. This vehicle is one of the rare sage green body and matching chassis colour models which were made for only a very short period at the same time the factory had starting making bronze green vehicles. This vehicle has always had a spare wheel fitted in the back and has the more attractive bonnet without the wheel mounting. The underside of the bonnet is unpainted and back to the bare aluminum as it would have left the factory the rear tub is also the same. INTERIOR It has a complete set of front seats from Exmoor trim that are the correct square back type for the age of the vehicle there are also rear bench seats in matching trim. It had also had a new canvas and flaps from Undercover Covers in Classic Khaki which looks great against the sage green bodywork. Front and rear mats have also been added which finish off the vehicle well. The load area is exceptionally clean and doesn't show any sights of heavy use. There has certainly been no expense spared on this Land Rover and the vehicle has had a thorough restoration. UNDER THE BONNET The engine bay has been well detailed and finished to a high standard. The restoration includes an overhauled later 2 litre engine that is a early Siamese bore type, dated 1952. The rebuilt 2-litre petrol engine gives huge improvements in reliability and drivability, looking very similar in appearance to the original. A more modern coil has been fitted to improve reliability and also the vehicle has benefited from a new refurbished carburettor and distributor. ON THE ROAD The engine busts into life at the turn of the key. It always starts first time and is a great runner. The vehicle really does pull very well and is a joy to drive and really does burble along. With the canvas sides rolled up and the door tops off this vehicle really does draw some attention. Especially when you put the windscreen down it really is an experience to drive. The vehicle will be supplied with a full 12 month MOT. It has a permanent four wheel drive gearbox which is the early ring pull type and correct for the vehicle. The gears change up and down as they should and goes through all the gears as it should. Almost all Series Land Rovers we have had drip a little oil, some quite a lot, this is the exception though no drips of oil to speak of even after standing for days in the same place. SUMMARY This is a fantastic example of a Series 1 restoration which is ready to use and enjoy this summer. The chassis numbers on the plates are the same as on the log book registration document and that stamped on the chassis itself. This is one of the best value for money 1949 80" we have ever had the opportunity to own. This Land Rover has obviously been cared for and cherished by its previous owners. It is a fantastic example that requires no work and is ready to use and enjoy. If you are an investor, then you will already know how these vehicles have appreciated over the last 5 years some doubling and others even tripling in value. This a very honest 67 year old Series Land Rover. What you see is what you get it looks and drives exactly as it should. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the vehicle. £39,995 Try our new free valuations service http://www.williamsclassics.co.uk/valuations/ http://www.williamsclassics.co.uk Any trail or inspection welcome, Credit and debit cards accepted, Delivery can also be arranged, P/X welcome, Any enquires please call 078255 87155.
