Classic Car Auctions says:

Wonderfully rustic daily driver, restore or keep as it is...The original Land Rover Series 1 was designed by Maurice Wilks and launched by the Rover Company of Solihull on 30th April 1948. It had an 80inch wheelbase and a sturdy box section ladder-frame chassis. The open back with 3 seats in the front design was heavily influenced by the American World War Two Willys Jeep and the Land Rover quickly became popular with both the army and the farming fraternity.

This super 1951 'Landy' has the patina of good, regular use and the 2-litre petrol engine runs sweetly. Interestingly, it has the rare aluminium bulkhead and is one of the last original 80-inch Land Rovers produced before production changed to the 86-inch chassis. According to the Heritage Certificate, it was sold new by Caffyns Ltd of Maidstone on the 18th November 1951. Having resided in a superb private Land Rover collection, OKM 410 was by no means the ugly duckling, as the vendor wanted to keep it looking authentic. With just four former keepers this is a simple, unadulterated early car and would be at home on the farm, outside the pub or just doing Land Rover things.
