1967 Land Rover Series 2a 88inch 2 1/4 Petrol SWB Pickup £500 NO RESERVE

Sellers Comments - Welcome to my Auction for a Land Rover series 2a 1967 SWB I purchased this in 2009 and have not done anything with it, I was intending to completely strip and restore / overhaul to a usable everyday vehicle,however 7 years down the line I have realized this isn't going to happen its just sad to see the old girl deteriorating outside the house so reluctantly I have decided to part with her, she comes with current mot and obviously TAX EXEMPT (huge saving) Body work wise she is best described as tatty and functional,Doors need usual repairs, interior is basic and shabby seats are not original but functional, the engine seems fine to me and always starts OK (bit smoky initially) the bulk head could do with tidying and as for the chassis it has had welding in the past and is covered in some type of bitumen, the rear chassis has been replaced at some time,Heater has been bodged into engine bay and hot water pipes feed into cab, I replaced the fuel tank with a Brand new one in January,also the Solex carburetor was replaced (see photo) the only time I drive this is to the MOT station and around the block ! please study the pictures carefully and I would advise viewing before bidding (it's old and needs TLC), to be on the safe side I would advise trailering away as never driven over 5 miles at a time, (only when I initially collected the vehicle 45 miles away 7 years ago !) Does drive and seems to stop in a straight line ! Comes with the 4 spare tyres and a CRANKING HANDLE ! This may be a bargain and with a bit of time and effort should turn out a reliable Iconic vehicle Number Plates will be replaced with newer white and Yellow.
