Registered in October 1959, this Land Rover 109" truck cab originally went to work with the newly‑created Central Electricity Generating Board's Southern Division, and was worked hard until retirement in 1971. Since then, the vendor tells us, it was stored in various barns and sheds by the subsequent four owners. Its first post‑CEGB owner kept it among a collection of Rolls‑Royces and Bentleys and used it occasionally on the road until 1984, but after he passed away, it was given to one of his friends, who soon passed it onto somebody else. He stored it in a barn for seven years, after which it moved to another owner, who then put it away in a shed until 2004. The next owner, from that year onwards, also stored it in a shed ‑ where it stayed until 2021.

Thanks to its lack of use post‑electricity board service, its recorded mileage is still low for a vehicle of this age, at an indicated 38,199 miles. It is believed to still be totally original, still with electricity board transfers in place on the doors and black and white flashes on the rear. The grey paint, although worn and battered, is original, with the bulkhead, chassis engine and gearbox untouched. Because it hasn't on the road since 1984, it will require recommissioning to be used again.      

Included in the history folder are two original buff logbooks, an MoT certificate from 1983 and the current V5C registration document.
