Classic Car Auctions says:

A Restored 1952 Land Rover with overdrive offered with no reserve. Showing just 72,000 miles this 80"inch Land Rover fitted with the later body was restored we are informed some 7 years ago and will be supplied with some photos showing the restoration.

This 80" chassis Series 1 Landrover restored and upgraded some 7 years ago we are told as a lightweight styled trials machine. Vendor informs at the time all rust was removed with chassis and bulkhead blasted clean, before proper repairs and then 20 litres of paint applied. 

Fitted we are told with a rare series 2 (not 2A) 2 1/4 litre petrol engine with overdrive providing apparently better economy than the standard 2 litre set up.

The vendor goes on to tell us that this Land Rover at the time of restoration was also fitted with free wheeling hubs and 11" twin leading shoe front brakes, as was new wiring loom with new lights, all new brake cylinders, new brake pipes, new clutch and clutch slave cylinder too. 

Supplied with an MOT and offered with no reserve this 1952 Land Rover must be of consideration.
