series 1 80 1.6 2dr Light 4X4 Utility manual Petrol

Fisher Performance Carss are delighted to offer this iconic British motor car for sale, known to be the ultimate Land Rover Series 1 80 inch 1600cc Petrol.
Part of a private car collection seldom driven this, vehicle has been dry stored and highly maintained. First registered 24th May 1951 Series 1 80 Chassis number 161-03146. Supplied by Henlys Limited of London, showing 40,012 miles. Mot'd until July 2020, all of the restoration work has been completed to a high standard.
Originally the Land Rover was a single model offering, which from 1948 until 1951 used an 80-inch (2.03 m) wheelbase and a 1.6-litre petrol engine producing around 50 bhp (37 kW; 51 PS). The four-speed gearbox from the Rover P3 was used, with a new two-speed transfer box. This incorporated an unusual four-wheel-drive system, with a freewheel unit (as used on several Rover cars of the time). This disengaged the front axle from the manual transmission on the overrun, allowing a form of permanent 4WD. A ring-pull mechanism in the driver's footwell allowed the freewheel to be locked to provide more traditional 4WD. This was a basic vehicle: tops for the doors and a roof (canvas or metal) were optional extras. In 1950, the lights moved from a position behind the grille to protruding through the grille.
