The iconic Land Rover Series I, II, and III, commonly referred to as 'Series' Land Rovers to distinguish them from later models, are off-road vehicles produced in the Midlands by the iconic and world-famous manufacturer. Land Rover claim that 70% of the vehicles ever made are still in use today - a claim first made in the 1992 brochure and repeated many times since.
We are told that this rare and striking, matching numbers petrol engined Land Rover was ordered by the Swiss post office. The sides of the car still feature the original PTT logo which stands for Postal, Telegraph and Telephone. We are also informed that the unusual tailor-made roof and roof rack are original and rare. This left hand drive example of the go anywhere 4x4 was kept in storage for 14 years hence the low mileage. The DVLA record for this Land Rover shows only 1 former keeper and it is offered without reserve. This Land Rover runs but will require some recommissioning.
