With only just 39,000 ever made, the Land Rover Series I is a national treasure brimming with automotive pride

Primed and born in 1948, the inspiration for this historic motor vehicle came from the iconic Jeep. Tellingly, the original Series I shared its wheelbase with the US legend.

This Land Rover Series I has an honesty anyone who’s driven a modern Defender will recognise.

Complete with a small 1.6-litre petrol engine, three seats squeezed within the interior, canvas hood and single windscreen wiper, this national treasure of automotive pride shows its younger stable mates here at Kahn H.Q the way to go.

In case you missed it, this particular vehicle was featured on Channel 4’s For The Love of Cars, starring Philip Glenister and Ant Anstead, a close friend of Afzal Kahn.

Philip and Ant found and restored this particular Land Rover Series I which had been sitting in a barn, un-driven, for over 41 years.

Tune into Channel 4- 4OD to see the vehicle featured in episode 2 and 7 of 'For the Love of Cars'.
