Congrats! I had one briefly, but it was way too far gone in the frame and I could not get a new chassis at the time so I sold it on.

How about some interior pics? If you do not have it, try to find a copy of James Taylor's the original series I and the series I green bible and parts manual. The series one club in the UK at least used to sell the latter two books. The James Taylor book has become unobtainium. Also, I note you have a full floater rear axle. That is nice.

And please put the correct lights on it and find it the right grill with the Birmingham Land Rover badge.

I have already talked with Ike, he seems like a really cool guy.

I have the original grill on the way, and lights well I haven't even had a chance to look at them yet. My goal is to keep it pretty original but functional...

Very Cool......add me to the call list if you ever want to sell please.




In addition to Ike your other best resource is going to be the LRSOC - Land Rover Series One Club. It's a fantastic resource and you can find tons of parts. Plus, their magazine publication is worth the price to join.....it's a great read.

I would have bought it for the sign paint on the door alone.

It would be criminal to ever paint over that.

I believe it would have had two filament Lucas 488 lights in clear with amber bulbs in front

L488 SIDE or BRAKE LAMP ASSEMBLY

reproductions.

The taillights were in various styles. If I can see more pics, I can probably tell you what it had.

Great company to deal with. Look at their keys. Under $7 for a key. Fantastic value.

Big fan of "Huxley" the VOT 107 complete with diesel.....

Brewie, I sent pics of your find to a friend (you know, to kind rub it in). Not nearly as cool as your find, IMO, but look what he literally found last week. VIN# 0006, just a brother from another mother.

Saw this in person at URE this weekend...the pics don't even remotely do it justice. One of the coolest Rovers I've seen in awhile!
