This wonderfully presented Series 1 Land Rover has featured in numerous Classic Land Rover magazines and was entered into the Strata to Florida tour in 2016. The Series 1 was professionally restored in 2015 which included a rebuild of the engine, gearbox and a refinish to the paintwork. A comprehensive history file accompanies the car and includes the original ownership documents dating back to 1953, old photographs from the 1950's and 60's and documentation of the recent restoration. A wonderful usable example with a fantastic history.
