1950 Land Rover Series 1

Earlier Series 1 direct from many years in storage; starts, runs and drives in low-ratio; later 2.25 petrol engine fitted; Heritage Certificate 

Supplied new to W Holloway & Sons Limited of Worcester, this 1950 Series 1 Land Rover 80” maintains its original colour scheme and was a Home Market (UK) model fitted originally with a1.6 litre four-cylinder engine. The registration EFK 215 which it still wears was issued at first registration in Worcester.

With our vendor for the last six years, the truck has remained mostly unused in storage during this time seeing very limited use on initial purchase. 

In a very much “as removed from the barn” state, the Series 1 does start, stop and run, but is stuck in low-ratio meaning purposeful forward motion is relatively limited until this is addressed.  Under the bonnet, the original 1.6 litre engine looks to have been replaced by a later 2.25 petrol engine.

Requiring a degree of re-commissioning by a new loving owner, these early Series trucks have a huge and devoted following and although not the earliest, its still an early and largely (bar the engine change) unadulterated example.

The history file includes the V5C, Heritage Certificate issued in November 2016, Land Rover Series 1 Club dating certificate and duplicate buff log book issued by East Suffolk County Council to the then owner, Capel Motor Works stamped October 1959.
