the UKs No 1 supplier of Quality Re manufactured, Rebuilt and Refurbished Classic Land Rovers

Are pleased to be able to offer:

SFU 455 – 1958 Land Rover Series 2 – Fully rebuilt

“Mabel” was supplied new by DH & AH Bloomer (Grimsby) to a farm in North kelsey (Lincs) – where it was put to work for the next 25 years.

In 1983, she failed her MOT and ended up in a scrap yard in Holton Le Moor, before being saved by her second owner Michael Shepherd who acquired her by way of a swap for his Chrysler New Yorker !, and subsequently carried out her first rebuild, before being put to work on HIS farm

In 1990, Mr Shepherd moved to North Somercotes, and Mabel played her part, towing a military trailer back and forth to assist the move.

By 2004 Mr Shepherd was ready to retire, Mabel needed another rebuild, so reluctantly they parted company. The history file includes a hand written letter from Mr Shepherd, detailing Mabel’s early life, including the fact that during her first 46 years, she only once ventured outside Lincolnshire – to Beverley (East Riding of Yorkshire).

Today, Mabel has been fully rebuilt to exacting standards, with meticulous attention to detail – so she is now ready for another lifetime of enjoyment, with all parts either being refurbished or new old stock items.

Rebuild included:

New galvanised chassis – painted black for original look
fully refurbished bulkhead
Re galvanised cappings
refurbished body
Full respray inside and out – Pastel Green
New Soft top
New wiring loom
rebuilt engine
rebuilt gearbox
rebuilt transfer box
New Clutch
all new brakes
rebuilt axles
rebuilt steering
New suspension
New distribute
New old stock Solex carburetor (From Cyprus)
New prop shafts
New Avon traction (correct period) tyres
Reproduction 1958 tax disc
Being one of the first 1,500 Series II Land Rovers, it features the 2.0 petrol engine

Mabel is a pleasure to drive and a pleasure to look at, and is simply looking for a new custodian to love and enjoy her for the future.

Free Road Tax, MOT exempt, and classic car insurance make this a very affordable classic to run.

All our classic Land Rovers are sold with 12 months MOT prior to sale (even if they are exempt) and come with our comprehensive 6 months in house warranty.

UK delivery and worldwide shipping a pleasure
