1949 Land Rover Series One 80" SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Wonderful early lights-behind-grille 80" in incredible 'time-warp' condition with original paint throughout.

A genuine 1949 model (866-chassis number) it is one of the very first painted in the now-traditional Deep Bronze Green.

Delivered new on the 15th June 1949 from The Rover Company to Botwoods of Ipswich, 'Jethro' was transferred for sale through Barnards of Stowmarket, Suffolk and has remained in East Anglia its entire life.

Genuine 49-model Land Rovers are rare in any condition and this represents what must be just a handful of very early Land Rovers that exist in such incredibly preserved cosmetic and structural order. The original engine was replaced many years ago for reasons unknown, but the genuine Series One engine that replaced it starts on the button, runs well and all the original and correct early running gear performs well.

After many years laid up in farm storage in Suffolk the gearbox was professionally restored around 10 years ago, the brakes refurbished and the wiring replaced with a period-correct cloth loom at the same time. It remains in very good running, driving, roadworthy condition. Amazingly the chassis retains much of its original paint. The body and chassis have been preserved using gentle 'oiling' methods.

Offered for sale on behalf of one of our long-standing clients, it is a worthy addition to a mature collection at around a third of the cost of a JLR factory restored example.
