Killers Comments - I'm Selling my 1955 86' series 1 , very original with a wonderful patina, as you can see from the pictures , Has original engine / gear box , engine was rebuilt around 20 years ago by the previous owner, although I haven't started it , i pretty sure it will once carb is put back together The over condition is pretty good , the previous owner owned it since he was 17 years old and learnt to drive in her, his dad bought it for him to stop him buying a motor bike, so it was with the same family for a very long time, they stored it in a garage for 30 years and you can tell !! The chassis is pretty good , will need a new out rigger on passenger side ( although you could patch it , will need a patch on front cross member , both rails are good , over all chassis is good , bulk head is good , will need small patch on passenger footwell , although I have land rovers running through my veins I am not an expert so you are encouraged to come up to Durham and view her ! Door posts are good , rear cross member solid , like I said shes been in storage for over 30 years so solid OVER ALL A REALLY SOLID ORIGINAL SERIES 1 that will need re-commissioning but not rebuilding , i was going to leave body work and paint as is as I prefer them with character faded paint work and dings , has full sticks for hood but no hood , items in rear are not included in sale , also i have door tops included in sale Please be realistic when bidding as we all know what solid original complete early series 1 are worth It will need trailering away , no silly offers , I'm only selling as I'm buying a house but am in no rush or desperate need to sell , PLEASE NO DO NOT BID IF YOU DONT ACTUALLY WANT TO BUY HER OR DONT HAVE THE FUNDS CASH ON COLLECTION ONLY situated in Durham Comes with original 1940's style log book
