The recent MOT Mileages are as follows. So, only around 1350 miles in the last 6 years, tootling around, and the odd local show. During the restoration, the body was removed, and the Land Rover was repaired and restored where necessary. This included localised repairs to the chassis, and a new rear cross member fitted (all welding done to a high standard). The bulkhead was repaired in the footwells, again, to a good standard.
The interior seat bases were replaced with quality new pads etc, so the seats look nice (All replaced to original spec). Originality was the key to the restoration, but a couple of minor, but sensible modifications were done. (1) The wing mirrors were updated to a slightly bigger version akin to the Series 3 mirrors. (2) A cab heater was plumbed in and fitted, this is a BMC unit of similar era, but with a good powerful blower fan (works very well). (3) A brand new Weber Carburetor was fitted, which gives reliability and super easy starting It's starts first time on the button!(4) Rear clear lights were fitted, to aid with reversing at night (These are switched on and off, with a period dash toggle switch). The Land Rover had all service items done, including a brake overhaul, plugs and leads etc, etc. The Land Rover starts, and runs lovely. The gear change is nice, easy and crisp, just like it should be, and the gearbox works well in both high and low ratio's.
This is a really nice Series 2A, from 1969, which I understand was the year, when the headlights were moved to the front wings, giving a slightly more modern look, than the original Series 2, but retaining the wire mesh front grill, in keeping with Land Rover traditions. Please don't shoot me if I'm out with a year or so! It has a lovely patina, and to say it's 47 years old, it really is lovely... It's not a trailer queen, or a show winner, but it has real charm, and I'm sure that the new owner will be proud to own it. Please don't expect it to be brand new, it's obviously not, but I think the new owner will be pleased with it.As you can tell by the mileage, it hasn't really made any journeys of any great length in recent years, so it may be best transporting it via trailer if you are travelling a long distance? The Landy Would probably be fine to drive, but at 47 years old, I could hardly offer a guarantee, if you decide to drive it a few hundred miles home. My advice would be transport it, and get used to it at home, before setting off on any adventures. I'm sure most folks will understand this. There is not a lot more to say really, other than viewings are welcomed and encouraged, as I have absolutely nothing to hide about this Land Rover.
