1956 Land Rover Series 1 Pickup
One previous keeper
66 Years with last owner
In constant use since 1956 on a croft on Loch Drumbuie
  This old Series 1 has been in continuous regular use since it was first registered in 1956 and has been regulary maintained by Land Rover specialist Alex Lindsay. It's had a replacement chassis some years ago which remains in solid condition and it retains many of it's original parts and features. This has been a working vehicle which starts immediatly on the button (literally) and runs very well and has been over some of the most demanding landscapes in the country, regulary. 

It was first registered new in 1956 and was bought in early 1960 by Campbell Semple, a Surgeon and Inventor, and used on the family croft on the banks of Loch Drambuie where it was mainly used to traverse some rough roughs leading to the croft. Interestingly, the character of 'Godwin Baxter' in the film 'Poor Things' was based on Campbell Semple. Loch Drumbuie, along with Campbell's experimental wind turbines are famous features in the area.

In 2016 Campbells' daughter, Sally, inherited the Land Rover and in 2017 was a delegate for Highland Council, hence the 'Vote Sally' text on each side of the truck.

It has been regulary maintained by the above specialist and is a vehicle that you can use right now. Sally drove this to us from the north of Scotland just last week, testament to it's reliability and her confidence in the vehicle was not misplaced.
