1955 SERIES 1 LAND ROVER - RUMSEY SPECIAL - Vintage & Prestige

Vintage Rolls Royce Cars

With Land Rover extending the life of the Defender the legend will continue just a little longer.
So to celebrate we found this little beauty.

1955 Series 1 Land Rover - Rumsey Special


Registration number: 436 UYE

This Land Rover is truly great fun! Engage the aircraft toggle switches to on, press the starter button and the 3.5 ltr V8 engine will burble to life, feel the smile widen across your face!!

This is a totally unique 1955 Series 1 Land Rover, there is nothing like this on the road today. The vehicle is also known as a Rumsey Special after the late Mark Rumsey, a well-known Land Rover enthusiast who spent an estimated £25,000 restoring this vehicle.

The vehicle is fitted with a 1990s Range Rover (Buick) 3.5ltr V8 engine and gearbox that runs beautifully. The sound this engine makes is fantastic and turns many heads! It is shod with 4 good Land Rover Wolf tyres, which are reputed to best off road tyres available. The vehicle also has high and low range selector as well as diff lock. 

The vehicle is not subject to an MOT, however the previous owner carried one out, which expires at the end of December. There is also zero road fund license on this vehicle.

In approx. 2011 the vehicle underwent a complete restoration, where the engine and the body were overhauled. In the last 6 months the vehicle has had a new radiator, larger uprated brakes/ discs, starter motor, wax oil to the chassis and a tune. The Rumsey was the subject of a multi page article in Land Rover International, where its uniqueness can be verified.

This Land Rover is a great vehicle to drive and has attracted much attention.
