HELP! Owner's desperate plea for safe return of super rare Land Rover
Even the slightest scratch could make this car worthless...
Last week, scumbags... I mean thieves broke into a secure farm shed in Cambridge and stole an extremely rare 1958 Land Rover Series II - Even the slightest damage can make this £40,000 completely worthless. No, I do mean Scumbags.
But for owner Julian Shoolheifer, it's not about the money, it's about preservation. This car is unique in the world of Land Rovers as it is possibly the only Series II that has its original paintwork, trim and papers. No work has been done to the car, only having two owners in its lifetime and astonishingly, only has done 29,000 miles.
"I have searched for 35 years for this car and if it gets damaged then a Land Rover of this quality and in this condition would be lost in history. People always say that something stolen from them is irreplaceable but this car actually is."
Julian runs a classic car business, with this knowledge he has recorded all the numbers and dates on each part of the Land Rover. So even if - heaven forbid - the car is scraped, he will know the parts on the market. 'LMS 940' has a distinguishing feature to look out for, on the back is a power take-off-unit - it allows the engine to transfer some power to any attached machine.
Keep your eyes open in the UK for this very rare and special Land Rover, so this unique and much-loved car can hopefully avoid being ripped apart or burnt. The licence plate is LMS 940, share this information around the UK car clubs, websites and social media. Essex police are still investigating this matter. We can do our bit at Petrolheads to save this old timer.
Let's get this car home again!
