  • Rare diesel model

Built between 1949 and 1958, the Series I Land Rover was available in no fewer than five different wheelbase lengths ranging from 80" to 109". The original 1.6-litre petrol engine was soon superseded by a 2.0-litre unit (for 1952) and the company set about developing its own diesel, which was first offered in 1956. Ruggedly built and simple in construction, the Land Rover proved capable of surviving in countries where conditions were primitive to say the least, a virtue that helped contribute to its worldwide acceptance. Indeed, it is estimated that two-thirds of all Land Rovers ever produced are still in existence today. In the course of more than 60 years in production the supremely versatile Land Rover would prove itself adaptable to innumerable civilian and military roles.

This Series I 107 pick-up example was purchased as a chassis, engine and gearbox which benefitted from servicing but with the body removed. The body has subsequently been refitted but we are informed will require a new wiring loom and fettling to be road worthy. Offered to auction with a V5C UK registration document and large number of spare parts the rebuilding of this classic Land Rover could prove an enjoyable project. Consigned by Dominic Lake.
