This is a working Series II with bags of character and a full MOT. It was MOT tested last Wednesday 25th March 2015. Insurance is usually less than £100.
It is in regular use so a good runner but needs some TLC. It will need a new chassis at some stage and it really needs a new canvass tilt as the existing one is full of holes. I have owned it for about 5 years and I have used it a lot during the summer.
I have changed the brakes and the doors and it has been hand painted.
The engine is the Perkins conversion to a 2.0 litre diesel. I have never been able to engage low range so I presume this needs looking at.
It is a 1961 so please don't buy it if you don't know what you are expecting. It has no seat belts and the seats are a mix and match of bits that I have picked up.
It runs like a typical series - very loud and no cabin insulation. It has a full stainless exhaust system.
I have a few spares that I will throw in plus a couple of manuals. I have lots of receipts too.

This is a great basis to start a genuine rebuild on.
