THE BEST of British will be on display at Shannons Sydney Winter Auction on Monday, August 26, with a tidy 1958 Land Rover Series I lining up as one of the headline acts.
According to Shannons, the Land Rover is one of the last examples of its type produced in 1958, and it’s powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine and comes with optional free-wheeling hubs.
The vehicle was originally delivered to its first owner near Hervey Bay, Queensland, and it is said to be in remarkably original condition, having enjoyed limited use in the hands of several enthusiast owners, the last two who kept it in storage.
At the time of cataloguing the old Landy was showing just 8400 miles (13,500km) on its odometer, and Shannons is expecting a sale price in the $25,000-$29,000 vicinity, reflecting a rise in values of early Land Rovers.
Other British vehicles in the auction include a 1920 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, a restored MG TC and a Jaguar XK140 FHC.
