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.
