Classic Car Auctions says:

"The one everyone wants!"

This desirable, 1955 Series One Land Rover, has been with its current owners for the past 50 years and is described by them as 'well used'. Up until recently it's been used on their estate as a workhorse and has served them very well in that role. Now in retirement, this faithful Landy is now looking for a new home. The current vendor has owned the vehicle since 1965, however they have changed the ownership name a few times for operational reasons so it appears on paper to have had more than the two owners it really has had. These early Series One variants are the ones everybody now wants and this one has perfect potential as a rolling restoration or the basis of a ground up 'concours' project.
