the first pre-production Land Rover series one has been found in a garden, and is in the hands of Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works just in time for its 70-year anniversary celebration

The utilitarian star of the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show went missing in the 1950s, it resurfaced in a garden in Birmingham( U.K.) in 2016

This demonstration vehicle from the Amsterdam show was last on the road in the 1960s, after which it spent 20 years in a Welsh field before being bought as a restoration project. It then stayed in that garden, languishing until Land Rover's recent discovery.

JLR plans to preserve the vehicle while also maintaining the 63 years of patina it developed

Land Rover will show off the finished product, which should be in driving shape by the conclusion of 2018.
