Motodrome are pleased to offer this utterly charming early 1950 Land Rover Series 1 80in lights behind grille model.

Chassis R06106109

Engine 47102346

An original UK car, according to it’s heritage certificate it was built and dispatched on 4th Jan 1950 to C Allen and Sons Limited of Taunton, and first registered 16th January 1950. The registration number appears to be the original.

Fitted with a matching set of Avon Traction Master 600x16 tyres, Exmoor Trim hood, and a towbar, but otherwise standard.

Odometer reading 6000 miles (which is presumably incorrect and hence should be disregarded, although given the low ownership, you never know), and the last owner had it since 2001 bedore it came to us, and the owner previous to him 1994-2001

LYC is quite a well-known vehicle and features on a fair amount of Series One memorabilia such as mugs, cups etc. It was the subject of a painting by Trevor Mitchell ‘a veteran’s day out’ and we have a printer’s proof copy of the picture.

It recently emerged from our workshop having had a thorough check over, including a full brake rebuild with the correct (and expensive) early Series One parts, and now goes (and, more importantly, stops) as it should do.

It’s on it’s original green-painted chassis, and, whilst the heritage certificate isn’t helpful here as it doesn’t show the original engine number, the engine visually looks like the period-correct 1. 6 as it has the earlier rocker cover. with the engine number 47102346, it's a 1954 2. 0 unit

It is, of course RFL, MOT and ULEZ exempt, and is rather lovely in my opinion.

On our own website, you’ll find our usual 2 videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, which form part of the description.
