warehouse and comes with a current South Carolina title. We do not

information please visit www.carcaveusa.com.Car Cave is proud to
offer this great running and driving low mileage Series I Land
Rover. This Landy original rolled off the Solihull, England
assembly line on May 12, 1952. A few days later on May 20 the
original factory built 80' left the factory for Stockholm, Sweden.
A professional conversion company, Wiklundsi Stockholm, extended
the chassis, body and driveline an additional 16'. The build was
commissioned by the Link�ping Saab Airport Fire Department and
delivered in 1953. The chassis number reflects this to be a 1952
model year with a date of first registration on 1/1/1953. Included
pictures show this Series stayed in use with Saab Airport Fire
Department until at least 2000, almost 50 years of service, indoor
storage, and fleet maintenance. This is quite possibly the only 96'
Series I as no other are known to exist.As Paul Harvey would say,
now for the rest of the story. This Land Rover was taken out of
service and put into storage for approximately 10 years. The
property caretaker revived this Series and got it road worthy
again. He had followed this Series almost it's entire life with the
fire department. The Series traded hands a few times in Sweden for
a total of four owners since 1952. Mileage is believed to be
original according to the Saab log book and this Landy spending 60
years at an airport. Car Cave purchased the Series from the fourth
owner and imported it to the United States in August of 2021.
Previous owner reported replacing the starter. Very little
maintenance was performed by us as this Series arrived 100% road
worth with all lights, wipers, gauges, doors, handles, hinges full
functional. Starts without needing choked with the push of a
button. Runs like a top and shifts smooth. Some spare parts
included and shown in pictures. Contact us for more information.
