1951 80” Landrover Series 1 original patination For Sale
Wonderfully original 80” Series 1 2.0 Landrover. A remarkable survivor in highly original and untouched off-farm condition. Built on August 14th, 1951, and registered in October by Altwoods of Stafford, this early 2.0 80” was registered to its first owner of some six years, Venables timber merchants of Stafford, an old established firm. The Landrover then moved to a rural country inn near Rhayader before going on to two large farms near Hereford. It then belonged to a garage in Hereford before being sold to its last owner who kept and treasured it on his farm and country estate on the edge of the Bretons. It was found on his passing during 2014 in one of the barns with one of the owners two airworthy tiger moths that had been on either side since 1989! Quite an amazing history of this wonderful landrovers working life as they were intended for. Still retaining its original Staffordshire number and plates (which are transferable) although that would be a shame after 68 years. Unbelievably the interior, although worn, is complete as rarely found and original. The engine is matching numbers as is the chassis. As you can see from the photos, the chassis and bulkhead are in incredible condition and the x member is original. The radiator (also matching dates) is original large core but could do with a re core!
