 previous owner had it for over 8 years and had used it for towing his speed boat to the lake district so hasnt been used for offroading over this time, i have been using this for my daily driver and has proven to be realiable although a little thirsty!! it also comes with a spare set of conway MT track half worn set of 5 ,Please bear in ,mind this is not a new truck and is forty years old!,does drop an odd spot of oil here and there (as all Landrovers of this age)but have new gaskets/seals to fix that will come with it, just had new handbrake shoes ,its great to drive and gets comments/looks wear ever it goes! Im not an expert on landys but please email any questions you have and feel free to come and have a look so you know what your bidding on.

i have just fitted a list off things in the last two months as i have bought it from a local seller, due to not having any more time to finish i have bitten off more than i can chew as i have my scooby as an ongoing project,

things i have replaced , reconed steering box as this packed up the week i got it, i rebuilt the drag link at the same time.
the distributor packed up as well so i have put a new dizzy , coil, and amplifier on ,

i replaced the front and rear suspension with the gaz 2 inch lift kit wit new poly bushes , new camber arms, new front galvanised strut turrets, also replaced the rear axle input seal as it was leaking badly,

it does want work for its next mot , you would be better coming to mull it over but it runs and drives so you can use it while repairing, wants a little bit off welding here and there not much, the wiring is functional but needs tidying , the chassis needs painting i have done it in places but its a timely job lol,

the only other negative is the front swivel joints need doing they are pitted and leaking , this was my next job its around £140 for the parts and the rest is your labour i have a manual and they arnt bad too replace.

please no messers if you want a project thats in progress and you can drive then this is for you but believe me its not a rolls royce its 40 years old and wants much love
