Land Rover Series 1 109" Truck Cab with 3/4 Tilt 1957


Land Rover Series 1 109" Truck Cab with 3/4 Tilt

On offer is a nice example of a long wheel base Series 1. This vehicle was original built on 6th May 1957 and despatched out of the factory 15th May 1957. The vehicle was supplied new to Males Garage Limited, Yeovil.

This vehicle has been subject to a sympathetic restoration and looks really well.

A very straight and original example, retaining many original features.

The vehicle has recently benefited from some recommissioning this has included, a new carburettor, brakes overhauled including new shoes and wheel cylinders all round, full service, all the electrics now work as they should. The vehicle has also had a new canvas fitted.

The engine runs very well and is apparent the vehicle has not covered many miles. Thousands of pounds have been spent on this vehicle, to ensure original parts have been used. The bodywork is all original and the vehicle has also recently benefited from some paintwork.

The Land Rover is in one of the most classic colour combinations light grey with matching body colour wheels and truck cab it looks fantastic and is correct to the vehicle.

To find an unmolested example has become very hard, but to find one that is in such straight condition and only covered a low mileage, retains all of its original panels, and its original chassis, is becoming very hard. The bodywork is very good and all the panels are straight with the exception of a very few dents and scraps. Which adds to the character of the vehicle.

One of the best original engine bays we have seen on a Series 1, extremely clean with original stickers still in place. The petrol engine fires up and drives very well there is no smoke, it idles sweetly and has plenty of power. The engine has been fully serviced by ourselves. It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and covered low mileage it runs as quiet and smooth as any Series Land Rover that we have ever had. It really is a credit to the previous owners work and maintenance over the years that the vehicle is still present in the such great usable condition.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will be supplied with a full 12 month mot. Four wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gears change up and down as they should it has a very quiet gearbox which is a good sign of it's light use over the years.

Almost all Series Land Rovers we have had drip a little oil, this is an exception though no drips of oil to speak of even after standing for days in the same place. The steering is as it should be and the vehicle doesn't wonder on the road like some series vehicles do. This is a very honest Series Land Rover. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle. Anything on this Land Rover that required attention has been done it is now faultless.
