This Land Rover was first registered in February 1955 to the Auxiliary fire service, registration number SXF 115, where it spent the first 20 years or so of its life. It then moved to an estate in Suffolk and remained there until 2001 when it was bought by the current owner and moved to his estate in Sussex, where it has seen light work for the last 20 years. The mileage indicated is 35,000 and entirely plausible and believed to be correct. The vehicle has been maintained and road licensed continuously whilst in current ownership. Since MOTs became optional it has not been MOTd, but it has just passed an MOT which expires in October 2022. The brakes required servicing and a chassis outrigger replaced. A new petrol tank has been fitted recently and the radiator has been replaced or reconditioned at some stage. Replacement seats were fitted some years ago. The engine runs sweetly and the vehicle drives well, but is original and very scruffy. It will be driven 100 miles to the auction. The vehicle comes with V5 document, current MOT, some old MOT certificates, some old licence discs and the tilt frame.
