Series Land Rover (Australia & NZ)
Series 3 Land Rover
Rob Frieling's 1955 86" Series 1 Land
When Rob purchased this Land
Rover Series 1 it had the original 2 litre engine but was
in need of a major rebore. An alternative engine was available
so Rob opted to use that.
The chassis was sand blasted, straightened and welded. It was given a prima of Intercure 200 zinc phosphate and then 3 coats of Interfine 629 of black gloss enamel.
"Both the old pitted and rusted swivel pin housings were removed and replaced. Brake cylinders re-sleeved and new brake shoes alround."
We hope to feature an update on Rob's Land Rover Series 1 restoration at some point in the future. In the meantime why not check out Rob's website for more photos and and insight into Rob's other interests.
