Help identifying vintage pickup value/make 11 Apr 2021 22:11 #220494

Hi, I'm trying to help my grandma raise some money to help pay for her house to be lifted (it's currently sinking) and she has a couple of old cars in the shed from my Grandfather.

I'm wanting to know whether there is any value to these two vehicles and any info you have on the make/model... I do think that the pickup truck may have been a dodge but I'm not sure.

I'd be so appreciative of any help. Thank you so much!

Ebony, the truck is an Austin, possibly late 40s or 50s. See photo for details of the Landrover. I think the Landrover will create the most interest.

Pretty sure the Landrover series 1 (if that is what is) are pretty desirable pieces

And the one in the shed is a Landrover

The yellow one is an Austin aka, Birmingham Bedford.
The other one is a S1 Land Rover.

The truck with no bonnet is, as said,an Austin K2 from about 1948 to 1952. They are not very valuable in that condition but somebody on this forum was looking for wheels several months ago. I see yours has no front wheels. The term "Birmingham Bedford" was only a nickname and probably only used in Australia. There is one in a paddock near me. It had a bonnet twenty years ago but that disappeared about 17 years ago. I can give directions to anyone who is interested.

The smaller vehicle is obviously a Landrover, Someone has said it is a Series 1 and it may well be. I know very little about them but I do know that the earliest Series 1's had the headlights behind the steel mesh grille. This is probably reasonably valuable. There is at least one Landrover club and I am sure there is a forum you could advertise it on.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

There is a Series I Landrover on ebay right now for $10,000......price depends a lot on originality,like original tray and sides.

Ebony, as has been stated, get good advice on the value of the Landrover, it could be worth good money, don’t sell yourself short. Your grandmother only has one shot at it.

Its an early one(pre 54),which is good........most value comes from having a model sought after in UK..... 80" wheelbase,and the original motor.......(many S1 s have had Holden motors put in them)........check some of the UK Land-rover Forums and vehicle sales to get an idea of potential value.

Ebony never did reply with any feedback about the sale of the Landrover.
