Sellers Comments- Here is my Military Series 2 Landrover I bought it last year (2015) with the intention of making it look like a real military classic, soft top etc. Its been dry stored since I bought it in my Works unit, Put it through an MOT in February , failed on wiper blade , screenwash top up and small weld in the drivers foot well . Total cost inc MOT £101.36 Tax Exempt. Very low insurance £55 Listed the mileage but not sure how accurate it is Comes with two extra front Wings and a rare toast rack grill (not Fitted) Petrol, starts and runs well Could be used as it is or a great restoration project. Seen fully restored at £17,000!!! You will not lose money on this classic, prices are starting to get silly especially this age and model. Some of the body repairs are not pretty but easily sorted, I've just not got the time and I'm getting rid of my unit DESCRIPTION When I bought the Landie reads Rare Rover 8 Forward Controller ,quite an early one the chassis number dates it to 1962 , ID Plate reads TRUCK F F R 1/4 TON 4x4 ROVER 8 On the V5 the vehicle states 1st registration 11.6.1970 which I presume to be when it was put on the road after Military use. Note because I was putting a soft top on the truck I sold the Cat flap door, (A mistake with hindsight) Although would look great with a canvas on it. This is a true historic vehicle , Ive tried to be as honest as I can, feel free to phone me or come and see the truck , its based in Lincoln LN2 Loads of old Bills MOT's etc ..
