    Hi Harry

    I don't know if you are aware, what you have fitted is the brushguard for the cross-eyed SII and SIIa. There was a later SIIa brushguard for the wide headlamp model where there was a step in the second upright to clear the headlamps. They were very similar to the SIII bar, but didn't have the two horizontal protrusions above the lifting points.

    Sorry I don't know if the mounting holes were in different places.

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    thanks Diana, I didn't know there was a different brush guard, but will look into that also.
    you were also correct with the key/lock numbers, I must see if my first car's ign key fits it...a '49 vanguard,


    for you thieves out there, there are more locks on this car than the love locks on that bridge in Europe...it has no petrol, no battery and a marauding cat lives in it, the dogs love fresh meat and are fed yearly, so they are extra hungry and can smell a postie at 3.75 miles,
    there are six gravestones from previous miscreants and the police still love their old car and look out for it.


    I wish that copper at Woodenbong knew it was an ex cop car!....

    Hi
    I have just acquired a '53 S1(Chassis No 36660505) and am quite interested in collecting as much detail on it as possible. Its been modified (Holden motored and other things) but still has quite a decent amount of original bits hiding under layers of dodgy paint. [pics will be posted after it arrive- currently being en route from vic to qld].


    I already know as much as the online tools can provide, ie
    (from calVIN)
    3
    Model year: 1953
    6
    Model: Land Rover, Series I, 80in, petrol
    6
    Body type: Completely knocked down (CKD)
    6
    Destination: Right-hand drive (RHD), export market
    0505
    Serial number


    (from LRSOC)


    Land Rover80" Basic 1997cc 'Siamese' bore - RHD Export CKD kit



    I also know the original Rego, as its still registered:
    GOA-603 (Victorian)


    Is there any further information that can be obtained based on the above details? In particular, it would be really nice to know the original engine number, when and where it was first sold etc.


    Im told im the 3rd owner (the 1st owner bought it new [then did the modifications, possibly in the eighties; and I bought it [last week] from the bloke who bought it from the original owner [about 25-30 years ago]). I also am reasonably confident it has been a Victorian vehicle all its life (given the rego), although now it will be residing in Qld...


    Many thanks for any info, or pointing in the best direction.

    There is a lovely lady that works at the British Motor Museum called Jan Valentino who will do a search. Depending on what she finds, there might be a smallish fee involved but she'll let you know to see if you want to proceed.

    My 1958 Series 2's (RHD CKD) information was unfortunately limited to the day it was dispatched out of Solihull and that she gave that to me for free...

    Hi Diana,

    Thanks for all the good work you're doing here - it's all very informative.

    I have 141800917/143800079, another one of those 1958 2 lt orphans.
    Only a few numbers away from Seriestwo's vehicle; it may even possibly be part of the same shipment.

    Anything else you can tell me about it?

    Peter.
