Series I 80"
Left hand drive USA import. Was used as a prop in the movie "Three Kings" in the scene with Matt Damon (see photo) where the cow steps on a land mine. Had a roll bar back then and painted tan for the movie. This one is a work in progress and will be repainted to original green.
1951 Land Rover Series I 80" (Originally green)
Original 1600 cc engine mostly complete. Fashioned precleaner from Massey Ferguson tractor air cleaner, cleaned up air filter, added rebuilt carb. Radiator sound and original.
Rebuilding instrument panel to take back to original.
No rust on frame but panels pretty knackered and will require some love and attention. Labs can only sit in this one but it is still hard to get them out! Missing a few parts but Santa answered my wish list.
Received new tires for its movie role.
Working on the axle and brake rebuild.

Gas tank took some work
