1949 Land Rover Tickford

Rare Land Rover from long term ownership; three owners from new; part restored; huge potential

One of the rarest and most desirable of Land Rovers.

First registered on 22nd November 1949 by Mrs Amy Simmons of Hereford before being transferred to Holloway & Sons (Motor Engineers) in 1954.

The engine was changed to 26100954 and rated as 1,997cc in approximately 1956.

The next registered keeper, recorded in 1983 is where the car has been laid up since.

The club records and paperwork on file confirm all the above.

For some considerable time, the car has been set aside to restore one day. More and more parts have been purchased over the years and the front end has only loosely been put together for the auction.

The rare Tickford body is of course original. The chassis is also original and surprisingly solid so this definitely has lots of potential.

The 62 photographs showing here clearly show the extent of what needs doing and show everything that arrived with us for the auction. It is worth noting that the vendors family have many other parts which may well be available by way of separate negotiation after the auction.
