Safari roof and hatch style rear door. 
Bodywork nice and straight but chassis needs a little welding in outriggers. Bulkhead does need some work however and needs repair or replacement.
Two owner vehicle from new and was last restored in 1993 with bodywork repainted, chassis painted and waxoiled. New wiring loom put in at that time and still seems ok.
It’s all original with V5 document and number plate that will go with the vehicle. I have owned the vehicle for many years, restored once but and simply have not had the time to start again after having a family.
Engine last ran 4 years ago but still moves freely with the starter handle. Can connect up a battery if you want to try and start her up.
Can't drive at the moment because the clutch needs bleeding and the same goes for the brakes
Many parts and spares included to start off any restoration project.
Please remember the vehicle is 47 years young and has not moved for a while. It will most definitely need a trailer to remove probably with a winch to get onto the trailer!
If you require further information or photographs please contact me and I will do my best to help. The vehicle and extras are listed elsewhere so the auction may cease if a buyer outside ebay comes forward before the auction end time.
