    Part of the charm in my view. Each to his own I guess, but although I have no difficulty with mechanical upgrades to improve reliability, longevity and efficiency – I would leave the body work as it is. But Landrovers may be in unique in this regard. It’s an approach that would not work for most classic cars.

    • Thanks for your contribution, Andrew. I have just finished repainting my battered Series One. I fixed some of the worst dents, but have left the home-made cabin on the car. It looks pretty awful, but is practical. My Landy is approaching its 60th birthday, but is still expected to earn its keep. Spent two days trying to replace the engine before I realised that the clutch friction plates have slightly different splines. The wait for a new clutch will give my knuckles, back and bruised head time to recover before I tackle the job again. Wondering if I should have just bought a better paddock car.
