Description

- Genuine UK supplied first registered 8 October 1956

- Original and transferable registration mark

- 2 litre petrol, overdrive gearbox

This is where 'The Best 4x4 by Far' started - a utility vehicle devised in 1947 by the Wilks brothers for use on their farm and inspired by the wartime Jeep. Thanks to its ingenious high/low ratio four-wheel drive system, the resultant 4x4 was possessed of incredible climbing ability in all conditions including battlefields.

This UK supplied Land Rover 107 pick-up was first registered on 8th October 1956 and comes with a host of old tax discs from new. The two-litre petrol engine is believed to be the original unit and is said to be in "good" condition, as is the bodywork, gearbox and interior trim. A buyer may wish to smarten the "old" paintwork or use the vehicle as is. An invoice on file details recent work to the front and rear brakes and a re-cored radiator. Finished in grey with grey interior, the odometer displays some 68,450 miles and the Swansea V5 indicates the registration RAA 293 is transferable. With the 70th anniversary of production coming up next year interest in the marque is sure to grow and now may well be a wise time to buy.
