*A worthy project with pedigree
*Unused since the 1990s
*Previously owned by a son of Spencer Wilks


The story of the Land Rover and its creation by the Wilks Brothers is well documented and today Series I models remain some of the most desirable among the Land Rover fraternity.

This 1955 86" Utility was bought and registered in the mid-1990s by Nicholas Wilks, the youngest son of Land Rover co-creator Spencer Wilks, as a project for his use but plans to restore 'Enry' did not come about due to ill health. When work stopped, fresh oil was added and the coolant drained with the odometer showing a non-confirmable 58,000 miles. Now needing a full restoration this worthy project comes with a current V5, old buff logbook, two keys, receipts for pre-storage work and a quartet of front doors believed to have come from a late Series 1 on the Wilks' Scottish estate.
