1966 Landrover 88 Series 2A And a 1978 Series 3 For Spares!

Sellers Comments - For sale my landrover series 88 2a project with most of a series 3 for parts. I had great intentions to build a running 2a for the farm to get us out in the winter snow but it has never happened! Time to admit defeat and pass it on! 
 I trailered both the 2a and the 3 to the carpak and after an hour or so got both of them running and drove them to there resting places! They have not been run or turned over for a few years now. Both will need taking away on trailer with a winch You will need a 4 wheel drive to tow them from where they are now. 
 What you get? 
 A 1966 2a that at some point has had a refurb and a series 3 bulkhead Installed and series 3 wings not sure about the shell! The guy i got it off had just fitted a recon gear box from ebay but never got it back on the road! When i drove it it ran well and all gears seemed to work,the only problem driving it was the brakes where binding. I did get them all freed up but that was two years ago now. A year later i bought a 1978 series 3 for spares its all there apart from the roof which i sold on ebay. It also had an overdrive which i sold too. Both the 2 and 3 have free wheeling hubs and have the 2 1/4 petrol engine in them. I also have a box of new light lenses. Who ever rebuilt the series2 made it look like a mod version! But it is not. I would recommend any one who is serious about bidding to view it first! This is a project for someone with time on there hands! The the chassis on the 2a has been refurbished when it was rebuilt many moons ago but will now need attention again most of it is solid apart from the rear bumper section. I have the floor panels in the back took them off to fit a new clutch slave unit.the bulkhead is pretty rottern low down by the floor this would need chopping out and plating. The series 3 chassis is totally rotted ! But you could salvage some parts off it.
