Land Rover Series IIa 200tdi Tax exempt 88 inch
I think this was originally a petrol powered Landy used by the postal service. 4 speed manual, fairey overdrive and free wheeling hubs. There's a safari roof with vents. Its now a bit of a hybrid, Series 2a body and chassis, Series 3 bulkhead. The Series 3 bulkhead gives a bit more modern! Looking clocks and dashboard layout. The engine is a 200tdi from I believe a Defender (the turbo is mounted higher up than on a Discovery 200tdi, so doesn't foul the chassis). The dash says 17,000 ish miles but to be honest I have no idea how accurate that is. In the last 18 months and 1000 miles I've had extensive work carried out on the engine, the head has been re-skimmed, valves re-cut and timing belt changed along with a full service and all fluids (gearbox, transfer case, axles) changed. The rear axle has also been refurbished professionally and all new shocks and parabolic springs from GB springs fitted. The car now has a bit of flex in the suspension! There's a rear LED worklight and the headlights are DOT marked LED units so you can actually see at night. Also fitted is a galvanised and then powder coated spare wheel carrier from Extreme 4x4. The front doors are completely new with stainless steel hinges and fixings.
The door lowers are hot dipped galvanised units from S&P Land Rovers and the tops are Rocky Mountain. The seats are from a defender, so not too bad comfort wise.
She drives well for an almost 60 year old car, the engine is strong and should be problem free with the recent work completed. The paint isn't the neatest as its just been hand painted in RAF blue and some of the wiring for the headlights and cooling fan could by tidied up. Or just use as is like I have been.
Will come with a spare bonnet (razor type with wheel carrier) and various spare bits and bobs. New project forces sale, I don't have the time, otherwise I'd be keeping her.
