Land Rover® Series 2 109 *CUTHBERTSON*

Sellers Comments - John Brown 4x4 Ltd of Thirsk, supplier of quality, vintage Land Rovers® to customers Worldwide, is delighted to present, on behalf of a third party, this very rare and superb CUTHBERTSON Land Rover®. Built and first registered on 8th September 1958, so a "proper" series 2, requiring no TAX or MOT, the original vehicle was despatched on 12th September 1958 to SMT Sales and Service Company Limited, Carlisle. The Cuthbertson conversion was carried out in 1958, and from there it has had an interesting history and has travelled around The World at various points, prior to returning to The UK in 2016. This is a matching numbers vehicle - chassis No 151900157 engine No 151901372. Both numbers are present on the vehicle where they should be. We are assuming that the ultra low mileage of 3982 to be correct, as who would do 100,000 road miles in a vehicle like this?! As you would imagine, mechanically it sounds and drives really well. Actually, the Cuthbertson factory still functions, and they hold records of it from 1958! That said, you could and can drive this on the road, it being road registered and road legal - in fact it is currently taxed too.
