1957 107" Land Rover SW

I imported the truck myself from England two years ago and have all importation papers (I employed a really good import agent so everything went exceedingly smoothly). Truck is registered, inspected and insured here in VT.

This truck is built to tackle anything off-road but still provide comfortable and powerful on-road performance including plenty of horsepower to keep up with highway traffic. It's a one-of-a-kind truly practical Series 1 built entirely with easily serviceable and sourced parts, including the Mazda engine, parts for which are sourced at M & D Engineering in the UK. I'm running the truck with the soft-top truck cab at the moment and it's just awesome for utility as a pickup. Huge payload and you can get at everything through the rear passenger doors. As stated, I do have the original hard-top with alpine windows and safari roof as well as the original rear bench seat which actually folds flat into a bed (a 107" exclusive feature) but I so prefer running the truck as a pickup for the better handling and utility.

NOTE TO BUY IT NOW CUSTOMERS: Buy it now purchase includes a brand new set of RCV cv-jointed lifetime warranty front axle assemblies and a front disc brake conversion kit that's taken half a year to get from England and Performance Unlimited in Bridgewater Vermont is poised to install them for you. As I'm sure you can gather, I have far more than $35k into this truck and I feel that this price is incredibly reasonable in light of other recent northeast Series 1 rover sales:

Selling because my main Vermont Overland vehicle is my LR3 and, to be very honest, with kids heading into college, I can't justify owning two rovers anymore.
