Sounds like it was a prototype:

This will, clearly, be the oldest thing they?ll work on, since it was built for the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show at which Land Rover was introduced to the world.

It seems that 48 of these original original Land Rovers, which were really pre-production prototypes, were built around the same time. This one, according to Land Rover, ended up being registered and presumably sold to somebody in 1955.

Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.
