*Running well
*Good mellowed condition
*Some history

Still in use throughout the world and still immeasurably popular Land Rovers have been involved in almost every form of trade or task and even early examples, such as this 1951 model remain highly useful. This example starts and runs well and engine and gearbox are said to be generally good, as are the brakes, steering and suspension. Body and paint are good to fair but Land Rovers – and especially older ones – are one classic where appearance isn't all about looking showroom fresh. The interior is eminently usable and generally good, and we advised there is some history. An ideal daily driver that would score serious cool points on the school run, for shopping errands or load-lugging, this is one early Landie not to be missed.
