Ex-MOD 1955 Land Rover Series 1 For Sale

The word ‘stunning’ is overused, so I apologise, but this ex-military 1955 Land Rover Series 1 is stunning!

From the seller: “The Land Rover began its life as a Column Commander’s vehicle for the British Army, whose job it was to lay communications cables across strategic territories.

It was registered in 1955 to the Halesowen Engineering Company, which converted vehicles for military contracts.

It then passed through a succession of owners before being acquired by the restorer in 2018. He completely stripped and rebuilt the vehicle and although the focus was on it being structurally and mechanically perfect, he’s been careful to preserve some of its patina as that – in his opinion – is a core part of its appeal.

There are a few bills and receipts supplied with the Land Rover including a selection from a well-known Series One specialist documenting many of the model specific parts that were required for its restoration.

In addition, there’s a British Motor Heritage certificate confirming that the Land Rover was made in February 1955 and dispatched from the factory the following month. Also included are a selection of photographs of the Land Rover ‘as found’ and also during its restoration.”
