Raf airfield lighting 1956 86 series 1 Land rover with military chassis plate, former military reg number 37aa85. Fitted with a rover 3500cc petrol engine on a Borg Warner 65 automatic gearbox. Been dry stored until 6 months ago It has had a full restoration, every nut and bolt on this car has been thoroughly gone through.
No stone has been left unturned on this rebuild, I must say I have kept some of the character, these cars tell a story and a lot of these are over restored with kilos of filler, this is not one of those cars. New v5 present and registration number 998UYO. New stainless fuel tank, new custom Long life custom exhaust (lifetime guaranteed) Facet fuel pump, Edelbrock 500cfm carb, Mallory coil and Mallory Unilite electronic distributor, 4 Brand new tyres, full professional re-wire, Reconditioned steering box, full professional re-spray, inside outside, underneath, wheels etc. Does need some little bits finishing of...
Floor plate needs modifying to clear gearbox pipes, please see picture (this will be done in the next fortnight) and needs wipers fitting. Everything on this car is new or reconditioned except gearbox as it was in excellent order.
It has soft top sticks but no canvas, the sticks are not fitted currently as it becomes to tall for my garage. I have taken quite a number of photos of the restoration these, are in a album to stay with the Land Rover along with the all the original paperwork that comes with it. These Series ones are going up rapidly in value and this car represents a rock solid investment for any perspective purchaser, thats also a usable car that can stay with more modern traffic due to the engine/gearbox combination. For any more pictures please contact me.
I have over 100 pictures of the restoration by myself. (I'm a fully qualified and time served Land Rover mechanic).Any serious offers will be considered only after viewing.
