Fans of Land Rover are in for a treat as it has been announced that the Land Rover Series 1 will make a return in the form of 25 factory restored examples.

Although the production of the model ceased back in 1985, it remains very popular with collectors as well as Land Rover enthusiasts so the 25 cars will likely sell out instantly.

The vehicles are believed to appear at the Techno-Classica car show in Germany, where they will be sold to those interested.

Since the production of the Defender came to an end earlier this years, fans of the brand have been keeping a close eye on any announcements regarding the car’s successor. Although the car won’t be unveiled any time soon, people are speculating about what it might look like once it finally goes on sale.

Due to the fact that Land Rover is receiving a lot of attention at the moment, it’s no surprise that it decided to something a little different with the Series 1. Read our other articles about Land Rover here.

Introduced in 1948, the car remained in production until 1985, and became of the most iconic vehicle of all time. Perhaps it never achieved the same popularity as the Defender, however it completely transformed the industry, introducing millions across the globe to the world of off-road vehicles.

Customers will be able to purchase the vehicle and follow its restoration, making changes to the vehicle as they see fit. According to reports, five colour finishes will be available, inspired by the original colours that the vehicle came available in back when it was launched.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing the restored vehicles in the near future.

It’s not clear at the moment how much the vehicles will cost, however a restored example of the Series 1 can fetch up to £30,000, so we can probably expect the 25 cars to cost more than that.
