Vehicle(s) Information: FRX 970….Chassis 06115174….Engine 57102586 registered 03/08/1950
Other Information: Our dear old landrover was built on 11/07/50..shipped on 19/07/50 to Green and Whincup dealers of Newberry. We think she was first used and owned by the Oxford Air Training School at Kidlington…alledgedly to pull Gliders….so possibly the Oxford Gliders Club…certainly she still has a Crest hand painted on the door that I would love to identify.
She is fitted with an early 2L IOE engine unit which she has carried since at least the late 1960s (as it appears in the Green Log Books) but would love to know more of the engine and if is an early Rover Service Exchange as I suspect, as she was built just prior to the prototype 2L I think?
I first knew our Landrover in 1972…and in the late 1980s helped the previous owner with her early restoration. Upon his passing in the late 1990s, I was very fortunate to acquire her and she has sat awaiting since. As I have just passed the 50 yrs mark myself it is time to finish this restoration.
She retains an excellent restored chassis and early bulkhead, all in new paint, and her rear axle is done. About to start on front axle rebuild and engine reassembly, body is off and stripped to repaint.
