Land Rover was first  produced in 1948 with the Series I.

It was designed for farm and light industrial use, and had a steel box-section chassis, and an aluminum body. From the beginning it was realised that some buyers would want a Land Rover’s abilities without the spartan interiors.

In 1952 and 1953, a larger 2.0-litre petrol engine was fitted. This engine has Siamese bores, meaning that there are no water passages for cooling between the cylinders. During 1950, the unusual semi-permanent 4WD system was replaced with a more conventional setup, with drive to the front axle being taken through a simple dog clutch.

The 1954 model year brought major changes. The 80-inch wheelbase model was replaced by an 86-inch wheelbase model and the extra wheelbase was added behind the cab area to provide additional load space. In mid-1954 the “spread bore” petrol engine was introduced (from engines 5710xxxx), allowing better cooling between the cylinders. The engine was modified again in 1955 (from engine 1706xxxxx), sometimes known as the ‘later’ spread bore, like in the case of this example we have here.
