Sellers Comments - Bought this vehicle in 2004 from an enthusiast, little used since on my paddocks. Originally diesel, not known when converted. Previous owner fitted a reconditioned 5 bearing engine with 36000 miles on the clock. I doubt it have done 500 miles in last 12 years. It is maddeningly a non-runner at present despite having a new electronic distributor fitted recently. I suspect the problem is in low tension or solenoid. NO MOT so will have to be towed or trailered away. Previous owner put on a half chassis,new foot wells, dumb irons ,outriggers, parabolic springs, brakes, large wheels (no spare), steering damper, freewheeling hubs and QT diff guards front and rear, Rebel steering guard, set of Series 3 Rocksliders/jackable sills, K & N air filter. I have fitted in the last few years a new Zenith carb, Bosch battery, exhaust, petrol pump, starter, Powermax Electronic distributor and coil, top half of driver's door. In the back it has 2 jerry can holders and a military tool box. Unfitted over drive. Tall lever jack included with sundry spare parts eg light stalk, Haynes Service and Repair and Restoration manuals included. Reasons for selling : so little use, moving house and age (mine)
