Land Rover

Land Rover Series 1, 2.0 Petrol, 88"SWB, 1958, 7 seater, fully registered on the road.

Video
This video was made at a recent Christmas Party for children with cancer. I volunteered to drive the kids and parents at Sandown Racecourse and went on safari with them. It was great fun. 55 years young and still going strong.



I am sorry to say that the Series 1 kept driving all day long while many of the Hot Rods and Speedsters had to take cooling down breaks.

The only other colleague 4x4 was a WW2 Jeep. It did a few slow off road sessions together with the Series 1 but then went on a flatbed home. The Series 1 just drove home.

Colour!

When I got the car it was painted over in white. When the engine was out for reconditioning I had the panels taken off and painted in a Land Rover beige/sand colour which was one of the (export models only) options in 1958.

Other Series 1s for sale!

What can I say about this one!? If you have the cash, go for it. It's been well cared for as I can see. Restoration work, or maintenance, is faithful and good. Aparently it has been driven daily and it's on the road. No pictures of the engine though. Yes, it's worth the money but check it out first. Sorry, but you never know with anyone else but me. Another example of a Series 1 currently on sale which seems to be worth the money. No pictures of the engine though. But what can be seen is immaculate and probably restored to better than new from factory. Got the money? Go for it, but do check it out first. Sorry, but you never know with anyone else but me. No pictures of the engine. Needs a lot of work from what I can see. Sure, $10,000 is cheap. But then the work starts. The time and expenses will probably surpass mine. It's an option though.

Undoubtedly one of the most recognisable four-wheel drives in the world.

This Series One Land Rover is one of the coolest examples we have seen to date. With a few simple switches and a gauge here and there the Land Rovers dash is completely metal with no padding and looks fantastic. No mod cons here, who needs stereos and blue tooth and GPS? This is all metal and no frills. From a period where four-wheel drives where made for working the land not dropping the kids to footy practice, this is a car that even back then boasted itself to be "The World's Most Versatile Vehicle".

These 'Landies' go anywhere, once accounted for 90% of 4WD in Australia and Land Rover claim that 70% of all series production are still in use today. This car is accompanied by the original handbooks and was delivered new to the Snowy Mountain Hydro as one of three delivered in 1951.

A complete knockdown kit assembled in Australia these cars are fast becoming very collectable, the rugged good looks and simple engineering make this model remain the coolest four wheel drive ever made.

Hebe's Photos

The below photos are NOT photoshopped and professionaly made by Clarence Tang, more here. It looks very good. This is close to how the car looks in reality as well. However, it is an 55 year old car and there are some minor blemishes and dints. I instructed the panel beaters not to go all the way and leave some character (inside). The pictures are real and unaltered, but indeed models you meet in real life don't look as great as in the magazine. Photography like this is an art. Further below some photos I shot without cleaning the car, just after rain.
