1953 Series 1 80" - $9,750

1953 Land-Rover
80 wheelbase
Red with red seats and tan canvas top
Originally built as a fire tender
Delivered new to the Ministry of Works in London, England
Have British Motor Heritage Certificate documenting build date and picture of truck as-delivered

Nice overall condition.
Runs, drives and stops well.
Recent maintenance on brakes, swivels and steering.
Recent rollbar added for safe(r) mild off-roading (club trials).
Original engine, gearbox, transfer case, axles, gauges, switches, lights, wheels, jack, starting handle, etc.
No rust in chassis or bulkhead (original galvanized bulkhead from factory).
Fuel pump replaced with solid state unit to stand up to ethanol in fuel.
Firestone 215/85-16 MT tires (with around 500 miles) and new battery.
Includes, but not installed, reproduction Clayton heater, original trafficators and fuel pump.
Prior owner provided receipts for more than $10k of work including new wiring harness, repaired fuel tank, replaced generator, etc., etc.
Paint has a few nicks and scratches, and top is pretty worn out.
Used for local Land Rover club trials events a few times.
Generates a lot of interest at British car shows.
52 bhp. Slow with vague steering so unable to compete with modern traffic. Think of it as being half way between a later Series Land-Rover and a tractor.
Deserves a quiet life of puttering around a neighborhood or a farm.
In the right setting, partly because of the color, this is a very cool vehicle.

Like most of us, I have too many projects.
As much as I like this old Rover, I hardly ever use it and I'm paying for storage.
$9,750

Cool looking truck.

I was looking at Land Rover tin signs today because of another post, and found a sign that looks a lot like the Heritage picture you rec'd off of the assembly line.

Might be cool for your collection. Plate 1 though

Thanks. It's difficult to imagine racing to put out a fire in a 52bhp Land-Rover . . .

I'm ready for something different and am lowering my asking price to $9,000. (This truck was bought by the prior owner for $13,000 in 2001.) It seems it might be more sought-after in the U.K. than over here.

One possibility would be a trade towards something more trail-worthy, but it would need to be a Defender (either mid-80's or a keenly-priced NAS D-90).

My wife would kill me, but how about a '84 110 that does great on the trails?

Sorry I suggested a trade. I love that truck but I'm trying to reduce the rover count, and as much as I'd love to own one of each model my wife would not

That would be a great trade...on both sides. Charles, you could store it at my house, and I will bring it to Uwharrie twice a year.

Updated pictures and lower price - $7,500

OK, I'm serious about selling this Land Rover. Before I resort to eBay, I'll give it another try.

Price now lowered to $7,500.

Includes new Exmoor 3-seater canvas 'tilt' (truck cab). Cost $500. (see updated picture gallery)
http://picasaweb.google.com/banniste...eat=directlink

The prior owner paid $13,000 for this truck in 2001, and it came to me with receipts for over $10,000 in parts and labor. I've owned it since January 2008 and have replaced the tires, battery, rebuilt the brakes, etc.

I drove it around today, probably about 10 miles. Drove my daughter to work. It's slow, but it gets around. I'm ready for something different.
