Land Rover Classic has announced a plan to fully restore 25 units of its famous Series I for customers to purchase.
The “Reborn” initiative for the Series I was presented at Techno-Classica in Essen, Germany, a show for vintage, classic and prestige automobiles.
The team restoring the Series Is first found 25 Series I chassis sourced from around the world. Once back in England, each model will undergo a full restoration to bring it back to original 1948 factory specification. All of the parts used will come from Land Rover Classic Parts, and each one of these models will be finished in one of five period-correct colors: light green, bronze green, RAF blue, dove grey and poppy red.
Each customer will be able to choose their preferred base vehicle before the restoration begins, while they can also follow along with restoration which takes place at the brand’s plant in Solihull, England.
“The launch of the Reborn initiative represents a fantastic opportunity for customers to own a valuable and collectable automotive icon,” said Tim Hannig, Director, Jaguar Land Rover Classic. “Reborn showcases Land Rover Classic’s expertise in restoring and maintaining our loyal customers’ prized Land Rovers. It also demonstrates the business’ commitment to supporting customers with original and genuine parts for Land Rover models that have been out for production for longer than 10 years.”
