Thank you for taking the time to look at the advert for my Series 1 Land Rover reluctantly for sale. According to a previous owner the Rover V8 engine, now installed, was undertaken in 1979 but the engine number in the registration document doesn't show a change until the car changed hands in 1994. The restoration was started in 2013 which took the best part of five years. Chassis stripped and using parts from a donor chassis, and from the Radford brothers of Aberdeen, professionally rebuilt to exacting standards, shot blasted and powder coated and the hollow sections sprayed internally with Dinitrol.The bulkhead is the original item that has been rebuilt by a professional series 1 restorer in the Land Rover series 1 club. The engine, from an early Sd1, has been completely rebuilt. The crankshaft main bearings are -0.20 and the big ends are -0.1, the bores were honed and the pistons are standard size with new rings, new ERR 5924 camshaft, new core plugs, heads overhauled. Gearbox was completely dismantled, any parts needing replacement were replaced and meticulously rebuilt together with the transfer box, front output shaft, handbrake assembly and the overdrive. New front and rear propshafts and rebuilt Range Rover 3.54:1 diffs. New Rocky Mountain parabolic springs and bushes together with Pro Comp shock absorbers.
Both SU carbs were refurbished, new aluminium cored radiator with thermo activated cooling fan, new hoses. Fitted with Rover coolant header tank. New Lumenition electronic ignition, starter motor.
Complete braking system replaced and filled with silicon brake fluid. All the cappings re-galvanised, the body has been resprayed, the seats are good as is the cab and instruments, there is a new high quality tilt and fume curtain. The wheels are wider than standard and fitted with 7.50 x 16 Michelin XZL tyres with plenty of life left in them.
Steering relay internals all renewed. The vehicle has been rewired with a Autosparks wiring loom and there is a rare Roto-Flare spot light fitted to the front, the reflector of which can be swivelled from a handle in the cab. New side, rear and indicator lights. The fuel tank has been replaced recently.There is an electric fuel pump. Twin bench seats in the rear, so seating for 7. It drives very nicely for a Series 1 Land Rover and with the Rover V8 has a bit more power and speed. The exhaust note is restrained but wonderful. I would urge anyone interested in my car to come and view it. A towbar and electrics are fitted to the S1 and the lights on the trailer are working. Advertised elsewhere so may be withdrawn at any point. For Viewing or questions please call 07542261594.
