2 x original corrosion-free Series side frames, which I have had galvanised for long life. 2 x swivel replacement kit, which includes new swivels and all necessary seals, shims and bolts etc. Plus a bunch of other odds and bods spares, including some interior trim.Video of the truck running and driving on request. I had intended to finish the restoration this summer, but realistically, that's not going to happen. So rather than put it back into storage once more, I think it's time to find it a home with an owner who has the time.
The vehicle already has many of the most desirable parts for an everyday truck. 300tdi conversion with a rebuilt top end, injector pump, injectors and fuel system, intercooler.Steering is unusually accurate for a Series truck. The mileage is 27,719 indicated and cannot be verified, actual mileage is unknown. I originally bought it for the galvanised chassis and other goodies, had a 300tdi installed, plumbed in a temporary exhaust and air box, and ran it for a year including a trip to southern France and then put it into storage until I had time to begin stage two of the restoration.
We had known from the start that the bulkhead and side frames were corroded and ultimately needed to be repaired or replaced and new swivels fitted. My list of things to replace or repair. Lower front doors (but not the fancy aluminium windows, which are fine). Second row doors - which could be repaired and reskinned as the window frames are okay. Headlining (not so hard if you've got basic machine sewing skills or know someone who has and Woolies Trim sells suitable fabric).I had intended to do a bare-metal respray when the vehicle was stripped down to replace the bulkhead and side frames panels. A previous owner had blown it over with a paint you can scratch off with your fingernails.
The air box is a temporary fitting and likewise the exhaust, which was made from Defender sections that we happened to have in the workshop on the day and were put together just so that the truck could be used before the next step in restoration. Their scruffiness does not reflect the fitting of the 300tdi and plumbing, which was done beautifully. I'd intended to fit a 109 6 cylinder exhaust and find a proper solution for the airbox while the truck was stripped. I'd very much rather sell this truck as a running restoration with the new bulkhead and side frames rather than strip it and sell off the parts individually. It's worth noting that a pair of original Series side frames with no corrosion whatsoever are pretty much unobtainable and that clean, rot-free replacement Series 3 bulkhead is also a very expensive item to acquire and the valuation of the truck with the spares reflects this.
