This is a genuine 2A originally supplied to the Army as a General Service (GS) Fitted for Radio (FFR) 1/4 ton truck. The Army reg number was 61 ER 52.
It was cast from military service on 21/7/75 after which it got it's first civilian registration number which is a P reg. The V5 recognizes it as a 1966 Historic Vehicle and an age related number could be obtained from the DVLA. The chassis and bulkhead have been shot blasted and repaired and you will not find any rust anywhere. The body panels have been stripped back to bare metal, etch primed and painted in satin desert sand.
(Don't expect to find a gloss finish). The engine is the original petrol unit which was rebuilt before I bought the vehicle. It has been completely rewired. Braking system has copper pipes and new flexible hoses. Wheel cylinders and drums are new.The Smiths heater has been rebuilt with a copper core. Seat belts and seat cushions are new.
It has parabolic springs, long wheelbase wheels and tyres, 12 volt alternator, an electric fan and a Series 3 radiator (original 2A big top radiator is included in the sale). Passed MOT on 9th May 2016 with no advisories.
To finish it needs doors and tail gate seals, some capping strips need to be riveted on, one corner window in the truck cab needs the filler strip fitting and the rear sliding window catches need replacing with ones that work. The wiper are very slow but that could be typical of the type.Demister hoses need to be made and fitted. All the hard work has been done and it will not take a lot to get this into show condition. Moving very soon and there isn't room for the Land Rover and my everyday car so the Land Rover has to go. Be aware that it has only done one 4 mile round trip to the MOT station in the last 6 years.
