This beautiful 1951 Land Rover Series 1 80" (1952 Model Year) Restored by the legendary Ken Wheelwright. Ken became the go to guy for Land Rover restorations in the world. Many of Ken's restorations are in Museums including Land Rover Heritage, Coventry, British Heritage and a German Motor Museum, and are rarely available for private sale.
A reputation to his unsurpassable reputation Ken was commissioned by Land Rover to restore a Series IIA Land Rover which had been owned by the wilks family and was presented to the founder of the Rover Company on his retirement. This vehicle now forms part of Land Rover's own heritage collection, joining Kens other restored Land Rovers.
This beautiful example has done less than 1000 miles since Ken worked his magic on it.
The Vehicle was originally built on 11th October 1951 and despatched from the Factory on 23rd October 1951.
This is a Bronze Green example and still has all its original running gear, matching number engine, gearbox & axles. To find a vehicle that is 66 years old and retains all its original running gear is outstanding let alone to be restored to such a high standard.
For anyone wanting to own a bit of British History and become the custodian of something truly special this is a rare opportunity.
This is a stunning example and would look great in any collection and as an investment.
