Land Rover 1949 Series One 80″ – For Sale


Land Rover 1949 Series One OVX 717 - For Sale

FOR SALE: Land Rover 1949 Series One 80″ – OVX 717

This lovely little, ‘lights-behind-the-grille’, Series One, built in 1949, is offered for sale from a well-known collector.

This Land Rover was restored many years ago and was on display in the showroom of Sturgess of Leicester, where we believe it resided for some years. The vehicle has covered less than 50 miles since it was purchased by the present owner 19 years ago.

The engine fires on the button every time, and runs very sweetly. The chassis and the bulkhead are original and in very good condition, as is the drive-train and important parts such as the radiator. The hood and interior are in as-new condition. The bodywork is in very good used condition. This is a very usable Series One.
