Description Land Rover Series 1 One 80" Minerva 1951 LHD

Here we have a Land Rover 80" Minerva chassis number 26630433 so very early in production and has the Land Rover bulkhead instead of the Minerva one which came later in production.
TAX & MOT EXEMPT
UK registered with 1st registration date of 15th September 1951.
Correct instrument dials, recent new seats.
Engine number 26135140. Engine runs very well and sounds good.
Gearbox is good.
Brakes are particularly good for a Series Land Rover!!
Chassis solid, has had some welding on the front dumb irons.
Bulkhead has had some welding but could do with a bit more to tidy it up.
This is a great running restoration project that can be used immediately and improved as you go along for a fraction of the cost of an 80".
HISTORY OF THE LAND ROVER MINERVA
When Belgium's army needed a lightweight 4×4 vehicle, the head of Minerva, Monsieur van Roggen approached Rover in the spring of 1951. On 21 June, Rover discovered that they were competing against Willys Jeep for the contract. In October 1951, the deal was agreed and in 1952, the Minerva-Land Rover was produced. Both 80" and 86" models were made until production ended in 1956.
The Rover company supplied technical support for Minerva and allowed Minerva to produce Land Rovers under licence to Rover. Arthur Goddard, Rover Assistant Chief Engineer and head of Land Rover development was in charge of approving the changes Minerva wanted to make to the Land Rover as well as setting the factory up to assemble the vehicles.
Can be viewed off Junc 14 M4 Near Hungerford Berkshire.
Call 07768 056254 to discuss.
Transport can be arranged at a competitive price.
