Land Rover Series 1 one 1952 80"

1952 series 1 80"

2 Litre engine
P4 Head conversion
Professionally fully rebuilt SU carb
Overdrive (no linkage)
Free wheeling hubs
Good door tops and windscreen
solid bulkhead (messy welding and past repairs, but perfectly usable and strong)
Solid chassis, no rot anywhere. (Again some messy welding in the past, but very strong and painted black)
All new brakes and pipes
New professional wiring loom
New dash switch
Original wheels (5x)
Spare set of wings (as set on have been cut down (off a trailer)
Full set of glass lights
New exhaust
New clutch
Various spares including old loom, clutch mechanism, brake mechanisms, dizzy, carb bits, lights.

Everything is there to complete it, apart from dash warning lights, a couple of switches, canvas hood and external door handles

It runs and drives very well, had it going round my yard, it pulls very well, and stops well.

All the lights, horn etc works. Dash just needs putting back in.

It could be put back on the road after a couple of days tinkering, being tax and mot exempt.

It really is a lovely little thing, just a bit rough round the edges where she’s been patched up in the past.

I would love to get her back on the road, but I just can’t at the minute.

It’s hard to value her really, as she a working project, that’s got no rust, but is just a little rough.

She is based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
