One of the last Series 1 Land Rovers producedbefore the introduction of the Series 2Ground-up restoration completed on a new chassisBeautifully detailed throughout including the often ignored engine bayTotally retrimmed interior.New Exmoor Canvas hood with rear window fittedNew tyres all round. Unleaded head conversionNot a trailer Queen, just a thoughtfully restored early car that's now ready for anythingThis particular Land Rover is one of the last Series 1s to leave the production line and wasregistered on the first ofJanuary 1958 as 707 AYA, a number it still proudly wears today.It has been restored over the last few years with serious input to try and achieve dent-free panels, a rare thing indeed on an early Land Rover! Itretains its original rear tub sitting on a new chassis with almost everything else being replaced as required as you mightexpect of a true workhorse that is now a little over sixty years old. Externally, all the steel trims and canopy bars weregalvanised before attention was paid to achieving a top class paint finish to the remainder of the Land Rover. Internally the front seats and rear benches have been retrimmed and a new Exmoor Canvas hood with rear window fitted. It is often said that the devil is in the detail and this certainly applies here with the engine bay being as clean and as tidy as the remainder of the vehicle, even down to the correct-type rubber cased battery. All wheels have been refurbished and now wear new tyres, even the bonnet mounted spare. As you would expect all mechanical aspects have been checked over and the engine was fitted with an 'unleaded' conversion along the way. Photographs pre-restoration are included as is a detailed owner trace from the DVLA.Often restored and rebuilt but rarely to this standard, an exceptional Series 1 88 that is now ready to be enjoyed once again, be that on the show circuit or worrying the pheasants down acountry lane!You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Friday between Thursday 29th October - 12th November.
