Series 2A Lightweight (Half Ton 88”) Land Rover with 200tdi engine, Tax exempt.
Sellers Comments -
Original military reg. number 26 RN 89 (think that makes it Royal Navy?)
This is RHD No 1321, I understand only 1893 RHD and 1096 LHD of these Land Rovers were built so it is a very rare vehicle especially in this condition.
Very good chassis
Very good bulkhead
Very straight bodywork
Hardly any rust
Metallic brown paintwork - looks very good.
Usual military lightweight spec, e.g. strengthened front and rear axles, front and rear military bumpers, twin fuel tanks (but only one currently piped in), 2 piece tailgate etc....
Just passed an MOT 31st July 2017
Cheap to insure only costing me £70 a year fully comp for 3,000 miles.
5 almost new 7.50 Goodyear G90 Tyres on military split rims.
Good Exmoor hood with roll up sides.
It has the following upgrades
Discovery 200tdi engine that runs very well still with turbo and intercooler fitted. Looks like a nice conversion. It is more powerful and more economical than the standard engine.
Originally it had 2 1/4 (2286cc 4 cylinder) Petrol engine. I have a complete spare 2286cc petrol engine that is available to the winning bidder for an additional £200 if you would like to make it more original.
High ratio Range Rover type (3.5) diffs – these enable it to cruse at 70mph
Body mounted role bar
Rocky mountain parabolic springs
Pro Comp Shock absorbers
LWB Brakes with servo
Fairy Free Wheel Hubs
Front seat belts
Defender door mirrors
High back seats etc…
These mods make it more usable especially if you are thinking of it as a daily drive without losing any of its unique nature.
Remember it is 45 years and I am selling it as seen without any guarantee.
Viewing and any inspection welcome and encouraged.
The V5 is in my name.
