For Sale: 1955 Land Rover Series I in Calgary, Alberta

Vehicle Description

Latest from the garages of Richfort Classics, this iconic 1955 Land Rover Series 1 has been professionally, and might we add, painstakingly restored. This is a full ground up rebuild with every component given the attention such a classic deserves.  Extreme care has been given to every part - be it the chassis, engine & bodywork or even the smallest washer.

Land Rovers are meant to be driven and enjoyed. With a proven and efficient 2 litre later spread bore engine (not the smaller 1600cc engines), these cars are one of a kind. Take this one out for a spin from time to time, get into North America's highways and backroads, be the envy of the guy in the next lane!

Classics are our passion and it shows in our work!
