This 1955 Land Rover Series 1 107” pickup was originally sold in the Canadian market to the Curran and Briggs construction company based in PEI. The truck came into ownership at 3 Brothers several years ago, and a complete restoration has been undertaken. As the restoration of this truck began, some hand painted lettering was discovered on the doors of the truck, from the original owners who used the truck for their business. With so much history and patina, it was decided to leave the body panels in their natural state instead of repainting them. So patinaed on the outside, fully restored and customized (tastefully) under the hood and on the inside.
This truck is in better than showroom condition and the detailed restoration includes…
- original restored frame
- original restored bulkhead
- fully rebuilt 2.25L engine and transmission
- complete mechanical restoration from end to end
- new seats and seat belts
- updated period style gauges with GPS speedometer
- Marshall Bluetooth speaker with custom mount
When the truck came into our ownership, the original 2.0L engine had already been replaced with a newer 2.25L engine from a later Series vehicle. As such, this truck has a bit more horsepower and acceleration than a standard Series 1, as well as the benefit of having parts much more easily attainable.
The truck sits on new 16” steel rims painted in Land Rover Mid Grey wrapped in brand new Yokohama LT Radial 742 tires.
The frame is completely rust free and hasn’t been extensively road driven since being restored. The truck is registered in Ontario and will be sold safetied and certified.
