SERIES I, CHAPTER II

From day one, our vehicles have helped map the world, discovering territories no one knew existed. Land Rover Reborn gives you the chance to own one of our original explorers – a fully-restored Land Rover Series I.

We’re going above and beyond to restore original Series Is, handpicked from across the globe for their authenticity. Each classic comes with a 12-month warranty – and a lifetime of history.

DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

No Series I is the same – each has lived a different life, in a different part of the world. Reborn ensures that this is no ordinary restoration – whether it’s an 80” or 86” model, we retain each vehicle’s authenticity and uniqueness.

EXAMINATION

Before we begin any work, we take each individual vehicle through an in-depth examination, uncovering exactly what needs to be restored – performing a physical check against the original build specifications.

BODY PREPARATION

Next, we dismantle the vehicle and restore its panels. Again, in order to preserve its unique personality, the panels are painted by the Land Rover Classic approved Bodyshop, in the five original period colours – Light Green, Bronze Green, Royal Air Force Blue, Dove Grey and Poppy Red.

EXTERIOR

We strip, refinish and retain as many original parts as possible, renewing them only when absolutely necessary. Reborn aims to continue the Series I’s story, not rewrite it.

INTERIOR

We then take a look at the Series I’s interior, stripping back the seats to their bare frames, and re-covering them in the customer’s choice of period material.

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

We strip and rebuild each Series I engine at our Power Train Department. Once its legendary heart is beating again, our 12-month or 12,000-mile manufacturer warranty ensures it will keep going for a long time to come.

FIXINGS AND FINISHES

It’s important to retain each vehicle’s authenticity and character, even in the littlest of details. With this in mind, we ensure all components are refinished to the vehicle’s original cosmetic specification. Once our work has ended, Series I’s next chapter begins…

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
