LAND ROVER SERIES 1 RHD
This incredibly original series 1 Land Rover was manufactured by the Rover Company in 1955 and delivered in CKD (Completely Knocked Down) form to the Grenville Motors assembly plant in Sydney, Australia. From there it was sold to its first owner, Mr F. B. Burton, a farmer from New South Wales, whose sign-written name can still be found on the front wing. Burton soon put the Land Rover to good use on the family farm and, as the son of the first owner recalled, for fishing trips down to Lake Jindabyne and hunting expeditions. In spite of its hard use and the rugged environment, Burton's careful ownership and the favourable climate preserved the car in wonderfully original condition. After several decades of faithful service in Australia, the Land Rover eventually found its way back to the UK where it was equally at home driving around London or taking its new owners up to Norfolk for family summer holidays.
Having been lovingly used and well maintained over the years this Land Rover remains incredibly original and displays a wonderful patina on its original paint. In addition, the chassis is completely rust free and has never been welded, and the car has recently benefitted from an engine and suspension overhaul. UK registered and ready to enjoy, it offers an unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a charmingly original Series 1 Land Rover. Please contact us for further details.
