Genuine "Barn Find" 1963 Classic Land Rover Series 2 Truck Cab - For Sale £5495

original condition with a solid bulkhead and chassis for year - Registration 66 GXE - Valued at £1400

Sellers Comments
I would like this real gem, an original barn find, from a farm in Somerset to go to a club member, or enthusiast. It is in original condition with a solid bulkhead and chassis for year. Lovely patina and paintwork. It was MOT'd back in March. It shows 74,000 miles, believed to be genuine with some old mots, and the engine is strong and drives well. It does not burn any oil or smoke so backs that up. It also starts on the button. A nice transferable number 66 GXE comes with the vehicle at the asking price (number valued at £1,400). However if you are on a limited budget, and do not require the number, I am happy to keep the number and reduce the asking price accordingly. It will need new door tops as they are in need of replacement (new glazed ones are only £100 for two). I am trying to source a pair of aged replacements though. The brake lights at the back are also odd, the foot wheels have been repaired at some stage, not the best job in the world, but are OK and are solid. It has one of the original seats, but they are not in great condition. Would benefit from a new set really. I drove the Land Rover back from Somerset myself, 208 miles without a problem and no need for the big yellow taxi. Sold as a nice re-commissioning project. The Land Rover can be viewed in Kent from Monday 8th June (by appointment only).  sensible offers near the £5,495 asking price considered or £3,995 without the 66 GXE registration number. A great investment with classic Land Rover prices rising fast. Better than money in the bank. The Land Rover is advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to the end the listing earlier. £300 deposit within 24 hours of winning bid.

1969 Series 2a 88" diesel. MoT Nov 15. See description, any inspection welcome

Sellers Notes
1969 Series 2a. 88" 2.5 diesel. MoT Nov 15. Owned for 8 years, previous owner 16 years, history from 1991. Classic Land Rover that looks great as it is. Minimal cosmetic TLC needed if you want pristine, but not necessary. It needs a new wind screen wiper motor (which recently failed, £50 on eBay), driver's side internal door handle and it jumps out of 1st and 2nd gear on occasion (it did this when i bought it) but not if the gear stick is held and it has not bothered me in 8 years.

It is fitted with Land Rover's updated 2.5 litre diesel engine (Freight Rover 300 Series) that was introduced in 1984, i have the manual/workbook (there is lots on line about this type of engine in Land Rovers ). I use it daily / weekly and i am only selling due to job move, i would not be selling otherwise or change it in any way. I have only 4700 local miles over the last 8 years.

This Land Rover would suit a first time Land Rover buyer or experienced Land Rover person who with minimal time and effort will increase its value, i wish i could keep it. I have had several offers and have received a lot of feedback with reference to the price, as such I now know that it would be worth the price I was originally asking for 3 listings ago if the gearbox was sound. So i am relisting at 'buy it now' price of £2000, no offers. (She owes me more than this!)

This landy has now been sold on three occasions to people who have not paid, please do not bid unless you are a genuine buyer.

Land Rover Defender TD5 110 Crew Double Cab - Galvanised Chassis & Low Miles 51k

Originally a Land Rover Special Vehicles build for the military and served its time in the falkland as an officers car. On retiring to civvie streat 3 years ago it was rebuilt on a glavanised chassis.

Land Rover Defender TD5 110 Crew Double Cab - Galvenised Chassis & Low Miles 51k

This is a great 2001 TD5 110, I only bought it recently (couple of months ago) thinking that a crew cab would be the way forward. Unfortunatly for us the crew cab model just doesnt work for us (due to space) and we need a station wagon, but other than that it is still a reluctant sale.
It was originally a Land Rover Special Vehicles build for the military and served its time in the falkland as an officers car.  On retiring to civvie streat 3 years ago it was rebuilt on a glavanised chassis.

As its stands today it benefits from the following....
- Genuine low milage at only 51,030 miles (speedo is in Km's reading 82,123.9)
- Rebult on a HD galvanised chassis  3 years ago
- All doors are the new TDCI steel doors with not a sign of rust, they are also far more solid than the old ones giving a better seal
- Modern TD5 dash
- TDCI Bonnet with contract black metalic fleck paint job (matches roof)
- New ECU (flashable)
- Central locking & alarm (2 sets of keys/fobs)
- Electric front windows
- 2" lift with galvanised shock turrets
- Galvanised swinging spare wheer carrier
- Galvanised front bumper
- Steering guard
- Front diff guard
- Rear quarter steps
- Rock/tree slider side step
- 18" Boost alloys in excellent condition
- Maxis Bravo 771 265/65 tyres with 10mm tread
- Tow bar with electrics
- Recent new clutch
- Front seats have the heating elements fitted but they are not wired in so would need switchs and wiring to work
- IFOR canopy mesh & perspex door - with matching external paint job
- load area wood lined
- Uprated headlamps (no problems seeing where you are going!)
- 8 months MOT (feb 2016)
- Comes with original landrover jack and spare number plate

Since I bought it I have...
- Changed the fuel filter (no problems, it just looked very old)
- Fitted a new centre cubby box
- Replaced speakers

Points to note...
- The polybushes squeak a bit
- Chequer plate on the wings could do with being repainted or replaced as they are peeling in few spots
- Load area could do with a clean up
- It lloks like the galvanised front bumper wasnt primed properly when painted with means the paint has flaked off in places
- It's a land rover and has been used although it does look far better than its age

Just to make it clear, the chassis, doors, bulkhead and body work are spotless with no dents or corrosion.  It has not skipped a beat, when I recently drove it on a 300 miles journey and there was no sign of any problems, no over heating, it pulled well and sat with the traffic at 70+ and delivered power on the button when needing to overtake/pull away etc using no water or oil and has driven well.
It has been a really hard decison to come to but one I have to sadly make, I need a station wagon.

I had intended to drop it down to standard height and have a full 'new take off' suspension set including anti roll bars and steering dampener up sitting in my garage (taken off and brand new 110 that was having a lift). If someone wanted this I would throw it in if it went for the asking price or close to, if not make an offer.

Notes for bidding & buying
- Please do come and look
- Bidders must have a min of 10 good feedback otherwise please contact me in advance

She is a nice solid motor and i will miss it, i love these petrol engines and i will be sad to see her go . please bear in mind that this is a classic and not a super comfortable and plush modern car. they bounce and they rattle, they are simple and basic but all the more rugged for it. so don't expect a truck with all the mod cons as they weren't invented when this was made. this is a solid example of a proper series though and nothing rattles that would have done in the first place.

Land Rover Restored SERIES 3 88 SWB 3 1983 2286CC petrol 48284 miles NO RUST Chasis & Bulkhead completely rust proofed inside & out

Land Rover Restored SERIES 3 88 SWB 3 1983 2286CC petrol 48284 miles NO RUST

I have a complete specifications sheet available (as a PDF) for this car.  It details much more than I can fit into an e-bay listing including many more photos.  Please text me (at 07783 685 042) your email address and I will email you the PDF ASAP

I am semi retired and restore Landy's for a hobby, buying, rust proofing and renovating them and I also work to order, .I.E. you specify the model and colour of Landy and I obtain one to suit you, and then renovate it to whatever level; you require.  My role is to restore the vehicle and set it up properly for the next 35 - 50 years of use.  The job is done properly regardless of time or cost.  They
However, these old Land Rovers are better suited to agricultural work than driving on a motorway.

My restoration principle is to restore the vehicle to original as much as possible using new parts built in the original way.  I never buy used parts or panels unless they are major panels (such as a undamaged roof) in excellent condition.   Corroded parts such as doors bottoms and door tops I replace with new.  Rubber seals are replaced as necessary and that will be shown in the information below.

I re-use the original bolts and nuts as much as possible as this helps to maintain the cars original, genuine character.  I only use stainless steel bolts in non critical areas. Exactly why automotive companies DON'T USE STAINLESS STEEL BOLTS is shown at the end of this listing

I normally drive the car I have just purchased home so I only buy cars I am sure are in generally sound condition.  I then drive them around whilst working on them to get everything right.  They normally travel 200 to 500 miles before I have completed it.

My experience of the car so far
I drove it 115 miles on the day I picked it up and it ran very strongly. I worked up the cruising speed from 45 to 65 mph so I could feel how it was performing at all speeds.  Then I did the last stretch few hours at a steady 60 mph on the motorway.  Although it will go quite a bit faster I prefer to stay a bit slower initially as naturally I don't have any replacement parts with me on the first journey.  Once home and have had a chance to work it over from end to end I can then just drive at in the A & B road speeds

Chassis- This car has no visible rust in either the chassis or bulkhead and that's before I rust proofed it!  It has had rust work in the past every car I have ever worked on!
RUST - All old landy's seem to have rust even if you can't see it! - I CONVERT it and/or REMOVE IT.
I have pressured spray the inside of bulkhead and inside and outside the chassis using a solution of Phosphoric Acid.  Phosphoric Acid converts iron oxide (rust) up to 10mm thick into Iron Phosphate!  The 10mm depth of conversion is approximately 4 times thicker than the steel in the chassis and bulkhead.  So, it is gone!  If the rust is worse than surface rust, i.e. it creates a hole the rust cut out and new steel welded into place. Items such as outriggers etc are simply completely replaced. I tend to weld in thicker steel than I take out so it is stronger than new

When the rust becomes iron phosphate it forms a protective layer that cannot rust again.  It is actually better galvanising! The converted protective layer can then be painted over as an inert stable surface.

We used to do this to vehicles and trailers used on the salt lakes in northern Australia (see the photos below to get an idea of what this treatment protects against. Google Dampier Salt to see what a salt field looks like)

New vehicles and trailers were scrapped after 3-4 years use on this level of salt.  Then we started treating them with phosphoric acid.

Please note that if the rust is worse than surface rust, it part is replaced, either with a brand new part or is the rust cut out and new steel welded into place.  I tend to weld in thicker steel than we take out so it is stronger than new

Chassis Photos! - Here are some current shots of the underneath.As you can see no sign of rust anywhere

As you can see no sign of rust anywhere

What I do to each vehicle (including this one) before delivery
I test each cylinders compression, checked the spark delivery and then tuned the engine.  I put in a distributor overhaul kit and new spark plugs as called for. On this car I also
Rust proofed the chassis and bulkhead as described elsewhere in this spec sheet
Installed a new battery with 3 year warranty
Installed new keys and matching locks for all doors with key locks. Normally the driver's door and rear safari door.  If the passenger door has a key lock that is also replaced. .  If the passenger door is the common snib from the inside type lock as in this car, a key is not used
Tuned and tested the engine
Check the cooling system is working correctly and replace any components necessary.
Remove the small light fitting as they get corroded inside over years.  I replace all of the indicator, stop lights and front side light fitting.  I repainted the area under lights and then replaced them all with brand new fittings ready for the next 30+  years
Undertook any small repairs and replacements needed
Installed new checker plate protection panels on top of the wings.
Any work with a safety consideration such a brakes, steering and cutting out rust in a chassis etc I have undertaken by qualified local independent engineering shop who have much more specialist equipment than it pays me to have.  It is also better for my insurance premiums!
I have been over the whole body and the paint was generally good but needed some fettling to make it exactly right.  I had some paint exactly colour matched to the original and used this for the corrective work.  The left over new paint will go with the car so you can do your own touch up work to the new scratches and marks you will make in the future.  All you need to provide is a tiny school paint brush
The current colour is light blue and the tub mouldings are in Galvanised finish JUST AS THEY SHOULD BE..  The tub moulding were once painted but they are pretty clean now
The external and internal pain is excellent -  See the photos
The inside is very normal and practical as its stands ,being painted in light blue.  The front floor is carpeted and there is an insulation kit installed on the from firewall and side of the seat box.
The rear floor is blue with rubber matting in the load area.
See the photos.

Roof above drivers compartment.  In the past this car had an insulation kit that someone has since removed. This was removed and someone HAS painted over the remaining fibrous material still glued to the roof.  If it bothers you can either re-install  an insulation kit or perhaps a head lining kit.

No Filler
I do not normally add body filler!  I prefer to paint over small imperfections leaving them visible.  Land Rovers are subject to a lot of vibration and this can be really bad for filler which ends up cracking and even flaking and looking much worse that the small dents you are trying to cover up.  It even falls out!    If there is a bad dent, I replace the panel.  I think a 30+ year old Land Rover should have small flaws.  If it is too perfect it looks wrong. I think my Landy's are good looking honest cars that are properly overhauled and will run for years.  However if someone has used filler in the past I leave it in place as obviously it is holding on well and it not clear what is behind it..
The engine number prefix is 361 meaning it is the last engine type used in Series vehicles by Land Rover and it is by far the very best type. It is a 4 cylinder petrol engine with 8:1 compression and 5 bearing instead of the earlier 3 bearing engine. It starts straight away and pulls strongly throughout a range of driving conditions, hills, motorways, A & B roads etc.  It also Idles beautifully for a Landy.  I have been told the car was serviced and had a distributor kit and new spark plugs installed just prior to the MOT
Mileage -
The odometer says 48284 at time of writing.  Judging by the overall condition of the vehicle I think it might be the genuine original mileages - but - see my notes below.  I have only ever had one old Landy with the mileage fully documented.  That was at 67000 miles and this one is better than that!

Mileages.  Unless I actually have documentary evidence going a very long way back I can't guarantee the mileage on any odometer is accurate.  The clocks only go to 99999 miles and so if it trips over, it starts again from 0.  Also, over 40 to 50 years the occasional clock can have been repaired or replaced.
When you are looking at old vehicles, the mileage is not so important. 4WD vehicle with too low a mileage can be subject to deterioration in the drive train and brake drums that won't occur in a higher mileage vehicle because the parts are used and lubricated.  Also, parts may have been replaced in the higher mileage vehicle. It is the overall mechanicals and panel condition that needs to be considered.
MOT Expiry  20/02/2016   -  So you know it is in excellent shape!
All 5 tyres are excellent with lots of tread.  These will last this cars for many, many, years.  They are Deestone Extra Traction 7.50-16 8 ply re-moulded tyres.
Wheels - the rims are superb having just been powder coated at a cost of £300.00
The brakes are excellent.  The vehicle stops quickly and in a straight line, even under very, very hard emergency style braking
The steering is tight and straight for a land rover.  Stops in a dead straight line when you brake, even when you brake really hard as I do to test it.  This car has had the Land Rover steering wheel replaced with a smaller wheel that looks good and makes driving so much easier and more precise.  You can have a Land Rover wheel reinstalled but I strongly recommend you drive it with this steering wheel as it is a many, many times better driving experience.
Gear Box
The gearbox is exceptionally good.  Absolutely firm with good positive and easy change with good movement and no strange noises.  It is tested in all gears and drive configurations for the MOT and so you know it is good.
Drive Train and Suspension
The MOT TEST checks the drive train in 2WD, 4WD, and High and Low ranges and it passed with flying colours so you know it is good.  The drive train is solid and normal throughout driving solidly down the road. 
This sympathetic restoration includes
new battery with 3 year warranty
freewheeling hubs that work
new keys and matching locks f
New deluxe seats (3 of) in the front that are colour coded to the blue of the car.
The paint on the inside of the car matches the outside of the car.  Doors insides are light blue and the inside roof and sides colour is sandstone matching the outside roof and sides.
Interior sound deadening kit on bulkhead and seat fronts - recently installed
Carpet on front floor and rubber matting installed in rear load area- recently installed
Only 11 owners from new!  This car is a real keeper! 
5 excellent matching tyres with substantial tread
New spare wheel cover
I have supplied a free spares kit with this car comprising of
set of spare heater hoses
New radiator cap (fitted)
New expansion tank cap, (fitted)
new fuel tank cap (fitted)
6 new spare bulbs , as follows; indicators (2) brake lights (2) front side lights (2).  (a sensible precaution and are mandatory if travelling to Europe)
Full set of 4 x 35amp barrel fuses (a complete set for a series)
New spare fan belt
You also get the old items I have replaced as they were working but had been used
These all fit in the commodious tool box under the passenger seat
Other good points
VALUE of these is going up fast.  In my experience they have zoomed upwards in the past 12-18 months.  I think as the economy improves they will continue to strongly increase in value
NO RUST - In the chassis and bulkhead - you can see the photos
only 11 owners since new!  It's obviously never been a lemon and I don't think it is now either
Registration mark, this old style plate number can be sold.  I haven't had that valued yet and you would need to write to the DVLA to get permission first  That takes about 2-3 weeks but so far they have never yet said no to me to having any of these very old plates being transferred.
Seat belts on either side are recently added inertia reel and ;lap sash in the middle
No overdrive to go scream as you drive and go wrong.  I really try to avoid buying  car with an overdrive. The more common overdrives can be awkward to use, troublesome to maintain and really don't make much of a practical difference for people.  Most of us use these cars as second cars on  A & B roads near home. You just don't use overdrive in that situation.  If you want to use the Landy a lot, it is better to add a  4 cyl LPG conversion for £720.00.  I had a telephone quote for the this size engine from a place near Liverpool. This really pays as LPG 59.9p per litre right now on my high performance super luxury, LWB Mercedes S500.  It is just so cheap and lots more fun than one of those economy tin boxes that my girl friend drives.  I can't actually travel far in her car as my legs don't fit without jamming them in!
Using LPG is cheaper to fit than an overdrive, saves a heck of a lot more money than an overdrive and doesn't deafen you.  At that price, you would save 50p per litre, or £2.25 per gallon and you would re-fill about 10 gallons per tank of petrol.  That means it will have paid for itself in 32 refills and after that you save bundles.  So it depends on how much you intend to drive as to how long it takes to save the cost of installation.  A tank a week and you would break even in only 7.5 months! (approximately)
Negative points
I really can't think of any - and I am reasonably picky !
This is a great car that is runs brilliantly This car starts quickly, even when dead cold, and runs strongly with no overheating, hesitancy or misfiring.  It has a gearbox with a fluid but precise gear change action.
Steering is excellent (by Series standards), good ride and none of the common transmission backlash etc. There really is nothing to criticise, and it's up there with the best Series I or you will have ever driven.

I have driven it over 220 miles includes 125 on motorways and the rest in stop start local small trips and everything works perfectly.  The steering is tight and it drives straight, stops quickly and straight, gearbox is firm, gear change is easy and doesn't grate, and, the engine runs and idles exactly as it should.  Takes a full tank without fumes or dripping so no leaks or split hoses there.
Stainless Steel sheer rating and vibration problems
Why not use Stainless steel bolts in a car? Mercedes, Ford and other auto manufacturers don't use stainless steel in cars because this is a soft and weak alloy material and instead they use high tensile steel. Stainless steel has a very low sheer strength rating that can be a disaster in auto accidents.  To put in simply the panels etc can shear straight through a stainless steel bolt whereas they can't sheer through a high tensile bolt, hence their use in automobiles.
Also, vibration causes stainless steel bolts and nuts to work loose (although using modern locking nuts helps) and the parts then can come loose and/or cease to function.

Pricing on the vehicle is as follows

Sellers Comments
1955 LWB Land rover pick up. Sold as a none runner as it has been in storage for many years. Chassis is not too bad and could be welded by any competent man with the correct skills. The bulk head would in my opinion need to be replaced. As you can see the body is very nice and straight. The pick up cab and the rear tub are also good. i was told that the engine is 2L and it is the correct one for this model .It has been painted at some stage but the log book states green. ( V5 in my name and all correct.) It will make a great start for a very sound project that will when complete be worth a considerable amount of money. the LWB models are very rear and sort after looking at the side and head lights its possible they are the original lucas ones. . The number plate has been valued at £1500 but really would be a shame to remove it. You will need a trailer to remove it but it will run free on all wheels . I can assist with loading. Please contact me for any more information. I was going to restore this but unfortunately circumstances have changed so i must part with it. Cash on collection only please. I have this advertised else where so it may be removed at any time. Thanks for looking. If you need any more information contact jeff on 07836 692839.

Land Rover SWB 88 Series 3 1972, Hard Top,Tax Exempt

1972 Series 3 88" Hard Top Land Rover is now up for sale due to the justification for the lack of use.

I bought the vehicle as it is with all the Modifications done by previous owners, I have only  Used, Maintained and Repaired the vehicle.

I have owned it since 2011 and have only covered  around 1700 miles, which is pretty low, it only tends to get used  for shooting activities, carrying feed, water, straw, farming type articles and people to places that are pretty far from maintained roads.

I normally drive a small van for my work as a daily runner and cover a lot of miles, so the Land Rover would be too cosly in fuel if I used it as my daily, therefore I need to get a vehicle that would do both tasks and not be too heavy on fuel, i.e. something modern.

As much as I like my Landy I can't justify keeping it.

It has been pretty good as an Offroader it has not let me down, it has been up, down and through places not for the faint hearted and it has not got stuck ( I'm not talking about doing things like the Extreme Mud Pluggers get up to).

It plodds along with lots of low end torque from the 2 1/4  Diesel,  although as all of you will know it wont break any land speed records, the journey is at a steady pace.

It has the following:

 MOT done on 21 May 2015

  A working Fairey Overdrive fitted

  Working Fairey Free Wheeling Hubs fitted

 Parabolic Springs fitted front and rear with suitable Shocks

General Grabber AT2 tyres fitted 235/85/R16 the equivalent of the 7.50 (Long wheel base type) due to having Parabolic springs

A  TMax 9500 winch fitted and working

Diff Guards front and rear.

Exmoor trim acoustic rubber moulded floor matt

Bonnet has been sound insulated

Wading Snorkel

Front Spot Lamps

Bumper Bar Brush Guard

High Lift Jack

Stainless Exhaust pipe from after the Down Pipe

Recent work done

Brake Shoes changed on Front

Brake Shoes Changed on Rear

N/S Rear Brake Slave Cylinder changed

N/S Front Hub oil seal changed

Rear Flexible Brake Hose changed

Both Front Flexible Brake Hoses changed

All Brake drums checked for ovality and wear

All Brake drums machined on lathe to true up.

Front axle removed to weld section on front Cross Member

Weld repair on Rear Cross Member O/S extension

New Front Side Lights fitted

New Modern H4 Type Head lights fitted

New Horn fitted

New Rear Propshaft fitted (12 months ago)

Repaced Broken Rear Diff unit with used Unit from Spare Axle (12 months ago)

Oil Changed on Engine, Gearbox and Axles 6 months ago

Bad Points

As with all Land Rovers of this age it will have the usual scratches and scrapes

The usual level of wear to its components for its age.

The usual small drips that the Land Rovers feel that they have to marks it's terrirory with.

The gear change between 2nd to 3rd  and 3rd to 4th is not as smooth as it first came out of the factory it has been like this pretty much when I first took ownership. It hasn't been an issue  because I've been driving it for nearly 4 years.

It has corrosion on the  Rear Tub  Support Cross Members, it is not an MOT issue being that it is just part of the Tub and not the chassis

Good Points

It has a very recent MOT

It is a solid strong vehicle

It has been cared for and maintained to good standard

All tyres have hardly any wear, the spare is unused

It has not been abused or used to tow heavy trailers

It comes with a Spare Gearbox, C/W Transfer box

It comes with 3 Brand New OEM Rear Tub Support Cross Members

It comes with a Spare Front Axle

It comes with a Spare Rear Axle ( The diff unit itself will need repairing)

Any questions you have please contact me, Wayne on 07970 824751  or send me an email

I am approx 20 miles West of Swansea, 3 miles past the end of the M4, near Cross Hands

I would recommend viewing, it is Not a pristine example of a Series Land Rover but it is solid.

I have access to a  2 poster Ramp so the vehicle can be inspected if required.

Buyer will need a Van/Truck  to carry the Axles and Gearbox, bear in mind the axles are very heavy  probably over 150kg each.

1958 series 1 (one) Land Rover 109"

Here we have a 1958 109" Land Rover Series 1. Engine is a later 2.25 diesel. Bulkhead needs work,

1958 land Rover Series 1 109 inch pick up. Fitted with a later 2.25 diesel engine. Tax and MoT exempt and cheap to insure.
I have had the vehicle for just over a year. It was bought to assist in moving furniture and taking household rubbish to the tip. The house move is now completed and I have no further use for it.
The engine starts well even on frosty mornings, it could do with a service (I have new filters and oil for it) and I notice there is oil leaking from the engine top so it may need a new rocker cover gasket. the gearbox is noisy and jumps out of 3rd gear on overrun. The bulkhead has been repaired in the foot-wells at some time but the top needs some repair. It would require a new top rail and plating on the inside above and at the back of the storage compartments (see picture). It was like this when I bought it but it has not bothered me, but it would need repairing as a project. The body has been painted in matt green. It has the usual dings and dents particularly in the n/s rear wing (see photo). The chassis is sound, there are signs of patching on the bulkhead out riggers and a new rear cross member has been fit at some time.  unfortunately wasps attached the rear tilt last summer and it is now full of holes. there is no bonnet stay. It has had a new wiring loom fit which now means there is only one ignition key/start switch rather than the usual two.

I have MoT certs going back to 1994. The engine must have been fit prior to 1994 as its listed as a 2.25 engine then.
This would make a good project vehicle or a cheap workhorse for some one.

Viewing welcome.

Land Rover Series 3 Military

Series III 109 LWB ex-Operation Talic/Desert Storm. Masses of military history
Series III 109 LWB ex-Operation Talic/Desert Storm. Masses of military history in a file with original number details, she was TA, 3 Para & 2 Para and Army Air Corps, she went out to Iraq with the Paras where the side boxes where field fitted. I've had several of these over the years and other military vehicles, we've had great fun with her at shows so far and always gets masses of attention. This is one of the very few not messed about with Series 3's I've had and seen, runs like a sewing machine.   

Bad bits are that although the floors are solid, aren't pretty but paint and matts and job done, there would be needed a small L patch needed on the rear x-member done for the winter time..

Rubbed down, primed & fresh paint
Bulkhead and floors sorted and solid
New brakes
Overhauled engine including distrib/coil/pump
Webber carb, making the solid engine spritely and fresh
Brand new recon gearbox, new lay shaft etc with the clutch done last year
Brand new FFR hood which is 2 weeks old, clearly no leaks or drips
Pioneer kit fitted at the back.

Internally she has floor mats front and rear, as you can see the footwells have been sorted aswell as primed, I haven painted them as the matts go over. Recon seats both front and rear, front has 3 seat belts fitted, rewired and all mil lighting works with mil lighting consol, new dash top, jerry can rack inside. Fuel system is a single fuel tank but all the plumbing is there but take not that this means the fuel gauge doesn't indicate. Door tops are 6/10. Driving is a pleasure,not all over the place and the gear box is great an not your usual wishy washy affair. I'm very sad to see this go as had alot of shows planned with the children but a loss of job means I cant keep everything at the moment but if I could I would as there is nothing quite like driving around in a soft-top ex-army Landy. Comes with a spare hood but this really is a temp cover with tea bag like qualities and the remainder of the paint so you have the right colour and batch details. Advertised else where on an OVNO basis, absolutely perfect for the summer season..viewing anytime

1952 Land Rover Series 1 80" Tax & MOT Exempt

.You are looking at a 1952 Land Rover Series 1 80", first registered on 03/01/1952.

Sellers Comments
This really is an amazing little Landy, read on! This 63 year old has a recently fitted 200tdi engine and reconditioned gearbox fitted. She also benefits from a Fairey Overdrive unit that brings the revs down on longer journeys and helps return that 30mpg! I really like this old girl, its a bit special.
Also fitted is RRC differentials which give it the road speed and drivability of a Defender so it's very usable. It is in fact my daily driver car. It's ready to drive away, it's tax and MOT exempt due to it's historic status but I also have a valid MOT for her and piece of mind.
The chassis is in great condition, very solid indeed. Rare aluminium bulkhead which is perfect. The photos speak a thousand words.
If you are looking for an'original' vehicle then this is not for you but if you like fun, drivability, head turning journeys then you'll totally love this old girl. Guaranteed to make you smile.
The Capstan winch is not connected, ammo box and ropes are not included, private reg may be included dependent on sale price. Currently running rear wheel drive only as the front diff needs the correct unit fitting which is included. I never use for off roading so never changed it when the rear was fitted.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to phone me on 07875556687 any time up until around 9.00pm. The Land Rover is situated near Manchester Airport and any inspection is invited. Delivery can also be arranged if required.

Land Rover 1980, SWB ( 88'') Diesel, Series 3, Very good cond. MOT april 2016

It is a 35 year old diesel (5 years to go for free tax) and as far as I can tell it is the original Perkins engine.

comparatively rare.  This vehicle is in good condition for age bodywork is very straight. (see Land Rover Owner International, Dec' 2013 issue - "buying a Series 3", which uses this type as an example).
The MOT runs until April 2016.
The chassis has had a lot of work carried out on it prior to my purchase and looks very good and is complete with new, shocks, rear cross member and also has a tow hook.  Any steel to aluminium contact has been gasketed to prevent metal on metal reaction.  The bulkhead has been fully repaired, as have the seat boxes and foot wells.  The brakes have been replaced when the chassis work was done.  It has also had new lights.
I have replaced the driver's door complete and the passenger door top for new including glazing, which enhances the integrity. Forward gears work fine in two wheel drive, four wheel drive high and low ratio.  The previous owner tells me there is also a new clutch fitted but I haven't attempted to verify that.  It starts as it should and does not run smokey.
As with any old Landy, there are a few 'isms!.

The not so small print:
Viewing is welcomed in the pe6 peterborough area  A 10% deposit will be payable and due immediately on auction end via PayPal or bank transfer, with the remainder as cash on collection  The vehicle will not be released without full cleared funds.  No tyre kickers or haggling after the event, you bid to buy.

1980 LAND ROVER 88" - 4 CYL Series IIa no reserve! - Location Swanage - Petrol - Owned for the last ten years

FOR SALE: Land Rover 88" series 2a, first registered 08/01/1980.

I've owned her for about ten years; I had a house in the South of France that I originally used as a main home and then used as a second home. I'd always wanted a Series IIa and found this one; we bought her and drove her down to the South of France with family on board, family dog and towing a trailer. She stayed at our house in France, and once we moved back to the UK, was used as a runabout whilst we were staying in France on holidays.

She's always run well and anyone who's looking at these knows how desirable they are. This is a lovely example, unmolested, not modified with big wheels/high lift etc and is ideal for either restoration, work and use as she is (a good honest workhorse) or even turning into a fully-fledged off roader for green laning etc. She drives beautifully and always has done.

It's currently on SORN and also doesn't have an active MOT; my daily is a Discovery 3 and so I've not got back round to putting the old girl back on the road. Obviously any inspection or appointment is more than welcome; I live in Swanage (BH19) and if you would like to come and see her, please let me know in advance and we can sort something out.

These are really versatile; it's got bench seats in the back (great for kids) and the top unbolts (these are all modular etc so it's all interchangeable) - great for summers!
She's also got the freewheeling hubs so great basis for off roading. She's also got an overdrive fitted so cruises nicely on the motorway.

As she's spent the last ten years in the South of France, she's in good order - remarkably little rust apart from surface rust, and been well looked after. What she needs now is some TLC but she's a good, solid, honest vehicle who needs to be taken on and restored back to everyday order.

I've also fitted a new battery to her and she turns over fine but hasn't caught. I've not had time to get her going and points etc probably need looking at and replacing, but these really are indestructible vehicles and will be a lovely little project for someone. Mileage - I've not listed as with a car this age, who knows exactly what it is, it's had a replacement instrument cluster at one time so she needs looking at and appreciating.

Unfortunately, I can't devote the time and attention she needs to getting up and running but she really is all there and together. Once MOT'd and taxed, it'll be a fantastic car for someone and I genuinely will be saddened to see her go.

The car is advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to end the auction early; any questions, please message me here or contact me directly.
She will need trailering away as there is no MOT etc currently.

Cash on collection please or bank transfer - keys and V5 release upon cleared funds!

Thanks for your interest.












LAND ROVER SERIES 3 88 INCH SWB 200 Tdi Great steering and up to 30 mpg - Location Wimbourne

MOT until February 2016.
78,600 miles showing on the odometer.
Sellers Comments
If you are looking for a Series Land Rover to use and enjoy daily, this must be for you.

Comfortable and quiet to drive, this Land Rover can achieve 30 mpg with the diesel 200 Tdi engine.

200 Tdi ENGINE checked over and fitted with new cambelt.  Professionally installed into the vehicle complete with turbocharger, intercooler, Glencoyne anti-vibration engine mounts plus an electric cooling fan.

NEW GEARBOX overhauled by the recognised specialists, Midland Transmissions, at a cost of over £1100 to handle the extra power of the 200 Tdi.  All gears, four wheel drive and high and low ranges work as they should. Clutch overhauled with new release bearing.

This Land Rover is comfortable and quiet, and drives extremely well. It has VERY GOOD STEERING which is not heavy and does not wander as it has the correct steering geometry owing to the original size 5 inch wheels being fitted with NEW AVON RANGER ALL-TERRAIN TYRES.

The BRAKES pull up strongly and in a straight line.

Structurally very sound with good bodywork, thanks to a photographic  BODY-OFF RESTORATION in 2006.  Waxoyled and well-maintained since.  Original unspoiled appearance, very attractive with black paintwork as an alternative to the usual colours.   Solid chassis, bulkhead, crossmember and floors. The bodywork is not in concours condition and has a few minor blemishes – what old Land Rover hasn’t? – but nothing at all serious.

Great cab INTERIOR with excellent front seats, inertia reel seat belts and stereo AM/FM radio cassette (that’s the white box on the dashboard in the pictures).

Full Wright Off-Road mats and sound insulation installed on the bulkhead, floors and seatbox (see plus an additional heavy rubber acoustic insulation mat on the rear floor.

Halogen headlamp conversion.

Replacement heater.

Electronic flasher unit.

Towbar (of course!).

Swing-away rear spare wheel carrier with cantilever action which swings automatically with the back door as it is opened.

As this is a 42 year old vehicle you cannot expect it to be perfect, but the only faults of which I am aware are:      1.The fuel and temperature gauges don’t work, which has never concerned me (it has been suggested that this is due to the instrument resistor needing replacement, but I haven’t had time to investigate).       2. There is minor corrosion in the door bottoms which is more cosmetic than anything else.     3. The nearside door mirror is cracked but serviceable.    4. Chipped nearside windscreen but it doesn’t affect the MOT.    5. There is a little constant velocity joint noise on full lock, but my garage says it’s nothing to worry about.

The large and detailed HISTORY FILE includes the photographic record of the restoration, invoices for repairs and maintenance, service records and a Workshop Manual on CD.

HERITAGE CERTIFICATE from British Motor Industry Heritage Trust confirming the date of manufacture.

Regretful sale due to change of circumstances.  My family will be sad to see it go, especially my wife who loves driving it (unlike many Landy wives, which says a lot for the useability of this particular example).

This probably isn’t the cheapest Land Rover for sale, but it is by far from being the most expensive either.  However, it is probably one of the most driveable as a result of having been fully sorted during regular use after the restoration and treated to the sensible upgrades detailed above.

Now for the serious bit: please only bid if you want to buy my Land Rover as the highest bid is a binding contract.  The winning bidder to please pay £200 deposit on Paypal immediately after the auction and the balance in cash within seven days of the end of the auction . Collection only please, or arrange your own transport.  Thank you.
