MOT until April 2019, currently taxed and in weekend use. Ready to drive away and have fun! This Land Rover'Thing' has been fitted with a 2.0 litre Pinto engine as fitted to Escort RS2000, so it's a lot faster than a standard Land Rover. This is fed by a Facet type electric fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, and Weber carb with K&N air Filter.Cooling is by a Mazda MX5 Radiator and twin electric fans. It is plenty fast enough for a vehicle like this, a bit nuts actually! It'll have fresh oil and filter, and a new cambelt and fan belt for the new owner.
This vehicle was originally built as an off road trialer/ATV in the 1990's, it's got a strong, welded rollcage/body structure and had the Pinto engine fitted at this stage. I have spent the last year or so recommissioning, modifying and adapting it to comply with MOT regulations in order to have this great fun toy that can be legally driven on the road. As you can imagine, it's not really for commuting or motorway use, although will do if you're mental! It is noisy, it sounds like a modified Mk2 Escort RS2000....... Except there's no windows or doors or sound deadening, it's fairly uncomfortable, a bit too fast, a bit of an ordeal to get in and out of, and it's like a big Mecano kit that you're always tinkering with, but it's brilliant fun and you'll never be sad when driving it!
Also it'll go anywhere on on its 32x12.5R15 BFG mud tyres, so will be great fun in the snow if you wrap up warm! The chassis is like new underneath and has all been repainted black. It also has near new shocks. It really impressed the MOT man actually, a very proud day indeed! The paint job looks ace in the pics, and it looks amazing driving down the road, but it is an off roader, built to do a job, so it is a'10 yard car', and when you get near it isn't the best paint job in the world, does look cool tho and gets loads of looks and compliments.
It is Green/Black on the V5c Logbook, even though it comes up as black on the reg search. I'm open to sensible offers, swaps etc. The vehicle must be paid for before it leaves here.
Due to the age and nature of this vehicle, I must sell it'As is, where is'. Please check out my other items, and add me to your favourite sellers :.
