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.
