Series 1 land rover 1955 86" field cable party For Sale
1955 86" series 1 Landrover.
Genuine "ministry of supply, Home office, line layer" field cable party..
All the hard metalwork done. Just engine and box to refresh.
Chassis was well repaired by previous owner and is solid and straight with visible chassis number that matches it's brass ministry plate on inner wing, which in turn matches the registration number on front and rear.
Bulkhead extensively rebuild by myself, with a Radford's top rail 2x bottom feet and 2a type pendulum clutch/brake footwells. Needs a minimal final fettling depending on your level of restoration.
All structural metalwork repairs needed have been done bar dents and a few cracks in the wings where wing mirrors were mounted, as I was not intending to do anything with paintwork just make it solid and safe.
All running gear is as original with 2ltr engine, semi dismantled for inspection (needs water pump, carb and a few studs)
I have also been collecting NOS and remanufactured parts ready for the reassembly including brand new stainless steel fuel tank, NOS fuel pickup, fuel sender, ign/light switch, bonnet retainer hooks, seatbox to bulkhead sill brackets and lots of other parts. Parts like wiper motors etc are boxed but not in pictures
It also comes with a large amount of doubles including rear axle, windscreen, door tops and bottoms, front wings and a second 2ltr engine (siezed and no top end)
And a truck cab hard top (missing rear window panel) and an extra radiator grill
She's a 95%+ complete vehicle that comes with pretty much all parts apart from consumables (like brakes and a wiring loom) needed to finish. The only parts I know to be missing is a dashboard, carb, steering wheel centre and a few off the shelf parts.
I've owned this for 5 years now and have just managed to buy my very first car back meaning this has to go.
Not currently on the DVLA system as I think she's been off the road for longer than she ever was on it. Re-registration will be straight forward once re assembled and MOT'd with an age related number issued at worst.
Viewing during daylight hours any day of the week welcome.
Located just north of Buckingham
