Sorry why would anyone with any sense want a MK1 Landrover or an even rougher preproduction one in the first place never mind a refurbed one.

A very good friend into Range Rovers calls them Hen Houses on wheels when he remembers his original Mk1 and he cannot work out why people want them either.

My neighbor across the street has one and loves it. Whatever floats your boat.

My late brother used to have a 1949 Series 1 80", lovely little thing it was. Worked for its keep too. Used to run a Bamford circular saw off the PTO to saw up firewood.

Pulled the local gamekeepers L200 out of axle deep mud as well!

I bought a 1949 model in the late 60's for £10. I loved it and wish I still had it.

I used it to collect the wife's granny (76yrs old) from Derbyshire when she stayed with us in Mansfield for the weekend and then take her home again. She loved it too.

I once drove one from Dartmouth to Bath return in a day to deliver some heavy lifting equipment for a friend, what a consummately dreadful vehicle to drive over distances.

In RSA they were good on dirt roads and we often had to recover the Ford 4x4 with it, they were very useful in the correct environment.

Would I want one - No.
