Welcome to my listing for my 1955 86 wheelbase Land Rover Series One. Family owned for last 40 years.
Dry stored for over 17 years after rolling chassis renovation. Recently removed from a garage location where the vehicle has sat untouched for the past 17 years. The vehicle was restored to a rolling chassis back in 2004. Every washer, gasket, oil seal and bearing was replaced.
Old studs and bolts reused unless they needed replacement. All chassis ancillaries were refitted, brake lines, cylinders and linkages. The chassis was repaired where necessary by a professional coded welder. Once solid, she was painted in black Miaguard chassis paint.The chassis work has seen the test of time and when uncovered from her dry location in early July, was found to be in excellent and rust free condition. The original 2ltr engine was reconditioned and has been mated to an S2 gearbox. The cylinders have been kept lubricated and the engine turns on the starting handle. Original set of 5 Michelin 7.50 R 16 tyres all holding air and in totally excellent condition with no splits or perishing. The tilt cover is in good cond with no holes, rips or tears, though slightly faded.
The hoops and sticks are all present. 2 radiators present, the original and an aftermarket replacement. Doors, windows, dashboard clocks, seats, fuel tank, original floor mats, mud flaps, bonnet, windscreen and vents, Steering rack, old wire steering wheel all present and in good condition. Sadly the person carrying out the restoration in their retirement fell into ill health and didn't get around to restoring the upper bodywork.We have not been able to locate the original V5 or bulkhead chassis plate, but following extensive research with LRSOC, the chassis number has been located and the V5 applied for. I will update the listing when the V5 arrives. (I see no reason for it not to be issued). This LR is registered on the LRSOC register from 1982. The registration plates (present) and chassis numbers tie up and are recorded. As far as we can see, most of everything is present to make a complete vehicle great again.
Items we haven't found: Wire mesh grille, Bulkhead plate, Old V5. As with nearly all Series 1 of this age, the bulkhead has suffered extensive rusting and will require complete replacement. All other body panels are serviceable but will require stripping and paint renovation. Many more photos available on request.If you require any item specifics, please ask. The vehicle is located just off the M4 J17.
