LAND ROVER V8 TRIALER OFF ROAD AIR LOCKING DIFF FIDDLE BRAKES

Sellers Comments - Land Rover based modified competition trialer. Front diff lock, fiddle brakes This vehicle has been designed and built for off road use. I have recently been allocated Registration mark BKU 390 B ENGINE 3500 cc Rover V8 engine, in very good running condition. Recently serviced. Looks to be a military recon unit Ex Forward control FC 101. Oil is clean and rocker assemblies tell me that this engine has done very little work. Accuspark electronic ignition. Distributor breather system to stop water ingress through drain holes. Starts runs and drives very well. GEARBOX LT 95 Forward control FC 101 gearbox. As with the engine this seems to be an excellent unit that has done little work. Drained oil was very clean. Gearbox changes gear very well no whines or knocks has good strong synchromesh operation. Centre diff lock works well, recent new actuator and selector valve. FRONT AXLE 4 link suspension with panhard rod. All tie bars rose jointed. Left hand drive swivel housing fitted enabling track rod to be fitted at the front of the axle. Track rod and drag link are solid steel. Recently rebuilt. New CV joints and bushings, new half shaft, new swivel seals and bearings. Recent new wheel bearings and hub seals. ARB Air locking differential. Fully functional with no knocks or bangs or air leaks. Axle and swivel oils recently changed. Defender front brake calipers. Brake pads hardly worn excellent brake discs. QT Diff guard. REAR AXLE 3 Link suspension with panhard rod all rose jointed. Recently stripped and rebuilt. Replacement standard rear diff. Recent new bearings and hub seals.

SUSPENSION Suspension is based around coil over shocks. 4 link with panhard rod on the front and 3 Link with panhard rod on the rear. Have been informed that they are Old Man Emu units. They work very well with this vehicle and it has crazy amounts of axle travel. The suspension has very positive damping and is very well suited to trialing. WHEELS Discovery wheels with turned centres 5 with tyres and spare rim. 5 New Malatesta Kaiman 235/85/16 Tyres SPARES AND EXTRAS Comes with fire extinguisher, spill kit, tow rope, jack and wheel brace. Spare wheel rim. 2pairs rear half shafts, set of spark plugs. To be offered to prospective purchaser, Gwyn lewis bead lock kit ( will not fit to these rims as the wheel well is reversed) Overall this is a very capable off road trialer. The Land Rover is on the road at the moment. There has been a recent registration transfer and I have been allocated registration BKU 390 B . I have V5C registration document for this allocated number, and a valid MOT certificate. NOTE VERY IMPORTANT. This vehicle has been designed and built for off road use. It's modifcations are heavily bias for off road trials. These modifications severely affect its on road handling and performance. I happily use it for local journeys for parts and supplies and local green lanes I treat it as a TRACTOR 30mph. If you think you can drive this away for 100 miles think again. Best picked up by trailer.






1968 Landrover Series IIa/2a LWB 109" Barn find/Project/Restoration

Sellers Comments - For Sale

1968 Series 2A 109" Landrover

Restoration Project - Runs and drives


Please Note: Harvey Frost Recovery Hook is NOT included in this sale. It will be removed before selling.

I am selling my 1968 Series 2A as I do not have time to restore this to the condition it deserves. I have owned the vehicle for over 10 years, and was purchased as a non-runner. I have had it MOT'd and on the road since I recomissioned it, and it passed its last MOT in November 2015. However a rear wheel cylinder has now seized up and it will not pass another one. The mileage listed is shown on the odometer, but cannot in anyway be verified. I honestly have no idea how many miles it has done in 38 years.

The vehicle is complete, but in poor condition. It has had lots of modifications in the time I have had it, and some done before I purchased the vehicle. The rear springs are heavy duty 10 leaf, and were presumably fitted when the hook was fitted. The Harvey Frost hook is NOT included with the vehicle. Everything else is as seen in photographs. It has an alternator converson fitted, and a SU electric fuel pump under the drivers seat. The original mechanical one is still fitted to the block but bypassed. Has Weber 34ICH carb fitted.Starts and runs first time, even after standing for 6 months without turning. Front tyres are very old, but have quite a bit of tread left they are Colways I think. Rear tyres are younger but still more than 10 years old, Wrangler AP with plenty of tread left on these too. 7.50x16 all round on LWB rims. Has retrofitted mirrors on the windscreen hinges, give excellent view to rear when towing. Rear lights were re-wired recently but main looms are all original. The steering box was rebuilt around 5 years ago when it failed.

Now for the some bad points! Paintwork and bodywork as you can see is dreadful. It was originally blue, but has been resprayed red, then bronze green, then Nato green. It will need completely stripping, respraying and quite a bit of undenting, however all the parts are there and the bulkhead and inner wings, rad panel etc. are all in good condition. I can see no major rot on the bulkhead, the tops, shoulders and outrigger mounts are all solid, though the footwells have been patched and could do with attention. Any restoration would involve a complete stripdown and the buklheads are easily repaired. The rear tub has definitly seen better days, the floor panel will need changing as it was cut about by whoever put the recovery hook in place, and I have had to patch the joint. The sides of the rear tub are creased and dented. Better I think to fit another tub in better condition. The rear crossmember is reasonably solid, however there has been patching to the rear chassis rails on several MOT's to pass, I suspect a new rear half chassis or replacement crossmember with extensions would be the best solution, as the rot keeps reappearing. Front of chassis is all solid. Moving inside the original seats and Smiths heater have long gone, the nearside seat is something unknown and far too high, the drivers seat I fitted is from a Bedford Midi van mounted to a custom frame which hinges up to allow access to fuel tank and pump. Middle seat is unusable. Steering wheel has been changed to one from a Trimuph PI 2500 but the leather is cracked and broken at the top. It has been taped up. Under the bonnet the master cylinder has been reconditioned and an alternator has been fitted, removing the original regulator box. The connections have been maintained at the regulator and one could be refitted and a dynamo replaced (why would you do this?). The engine has seen better days and is exhibiting some big end rumble under load, and top speed is down from the 70mph when I bought it to nearer 55mph. The water pump is leaking from the spindle and will need replacing, however it the engine does start up without any difficulty even after it has been unused for 3months plus. Gearbox and axles have never given any trouble, and as far as I know are original and all work fine, except the reverse detent springs on the gearlever itself, which have long gone. 2WD/4WD and low levers all work correctly.

To be honest I will be reluctant to see this go, but it is getting to the stage where it needs complete restoration and I simply do not have the time to restore another Series at present. I would like to see it go to a good home, but I will not accept silly offers. I know what they are worth both as a barn find and in good condition.

I strongly reccomend viewing before purchase. I can be contacted via email or on 07005 980949. Please be aware that I am unable to take calls at work until after 8pm, please call befor 11pm or at weekends.

Sellers Comments - Purchased from John Brown Landrovers about 5 years ago and used every year for about 200/300 miles with the kids and bikes and dog walks etc. Ran out of MOT last year and failed only on Brakes. Selling as an easy project as I do not have the time to devote to the old girl. Chassis and Bulkhead sound although underneath could do with a clean and re-waxoil. Needs new door tops ideally and a new battery and the brakes sorting and a general tidy up as she has stood for 6 months under the trees. Other than that she starts and drives well. Never let me down when we were using her. Will need trailering away. Cash on Collection from Cornwall Please.




Land Rover Lightweight SIII - 1974

Sellers Comments - For sale, my Land Rover Lightweight Series III. I've owned it for 20 years. The actual vehicle was built in January 1974 (I recently got a Heritage Certificate as proof) and demobbed from the army in 1983. The owner at that time give it the look it has now although I added forward-facing rear seats and a Lightweight grille. It has twin tanks and a Kenlowe fan. I have MOTs going back to the very first one in 1983 so you can check mileage. I also have receipts for jobs/service going back to 1994. I haven't used the vehicle for aggressive off-roading, just the occasional poodling around gentle runs on off-road courses at various Land Rover shows. The reason why I'm selling is that I'm simply not using it enough and it needs to go to somebody who will. It passed its MOT a couple of weeks ago with an advisory for a slight leak on nearside rear hub seal. It could do with a decent service and some TLC. Please bear in mind this a 42-year-old Land Rover! Vehicle is in Clapham, SW London.

Land Rover Series 1 (107" truck)

Sellers Comments Here we have my 1955 Series 1 Land Rover 107" MOT expiry shown, but it is MOT Exempt! I bought the vehicle 3 years ago, as a pastime for my imminent retirement. Retired last year, but now back at work! Enough of that, so here's a description: 1955 Land Rover 107" truck RAF Blue Should have a petrol engine, but a previous owner installed a 2.5 litre turbo diesel The engine is what I believe is called a 19j. Early Disco? I am told that the reg. no. is "age related", the original transferred to another vehicle I have evidence that the original number was OWW 705 I have no idea of the mileage, as the odometer does not work Chassis is sound, and possibly a replacement for the original, but I am no expert The only instrument that works is the speedo Full tilt by Exmoor Trim, in contrasting blue Sticks are not a genuine set, but are perfectly useable I believe that the bloke I bought the vehicle from mixed the sticks with his 80" Series 1 Seats are in very good order, and obviously a replacement for the originals When I bought it, there were 12 seats, 3 up front and 9 in the tub (see photos) I have only used it as a truck, so the 9 in the tub were removed, but are included Tyres are in very good order (see photos) Last three photos were from the bloke who sold me the vehicle These show the possible seating configuration, engine and underside The V5 states "Date of first registration" as 01.10.1998 At section 8 it states "Decl/d manuf 1955" I translate this as "declared manufactured 1955" The VIN plate is present, though not attached to the Land Rover, giving the manufacturer's serial number







Land Rover Series 3 Safari Edition

Sellers Comments - Offered for sale is my Land Rover Series III. It has been a great companion this summer but sadly I do not have both the time to give it the attention it should have, or winter parking for it. I would much rather it be used by someone who can give it the time and appreciation it deserves. It is rather special as it features a full safari roof rack with safari vents underneath and a ladder to get up onto the top. It also has windows in the back, which means is gives great vision when driving, and if anyone wanted to put seats into the back it would give a better view to the passengers. I have also fitted a custom made cubby-box in between the front seats, which is very useful to keep bits and bobs that would normally roll around the dashboard! The middle seat in included in the sale however, just in case you prefer it with three seats in the front. Whilst I have owned it, I have fitted a new battery (with a 3 year guarantee), upgraded the headlights to halogen, fitted a new rear view mirror, a new windscreen washer motor. The Land Rover also benefits from a Fairey overdrive to give you a bit of a boost, and free wheeling hubs on the front axle. It has been oiled and greased every week by myself, with a full oil change every 6 months. The Land Rover also comes with a box of spares including seals and headlights, and a full folder of receipts and invoices. It is Tax exempt next year, which would save a great amount of money, and I insure it using Classic Car insurance which, even though I'm only 23, is a third of my 'modern' car insurance. It has MOT until March 2017 with NO advisories given on the previous inspection, and drives very well. I'm not going to claim it is the fastest thing in the world, but it gets you from A to B and you have an enormous amount of fun with it.

Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon

Seller Comments - Alex’ is a 1968 series 2a Land Rover with the 109-inch chassis and the straight-six 2.6-litre petrol engine. He went straight from the Land Rover factory to R.J. Searle Ltd. in Sunbury on Thames to be fitted with a Carawagon interior and solid raising roof. The resulting vehicle looks very period and will sleep and cater for four people (two in the roof and two on the rear seats that fold down to make a double bed). The current owner purchased in 1998 from an elderly gentleman on the Isle of Wight who carried out a lot of work on the car to make it fit for expedition travel. So the original petrol tank has been replaced with a long-range military version, the electrical system was upgraded and an LPG system (untested) fitted. The seller used it for a few years as a second vehicle and self-contained holiday camper but was forced to lay it up in 2005 due a change in job that meant he needed a more sensible car. (Although we struggle to think of any car that is more sensible than a Land Rover with a bed in it, even our enthusiasm allows us to acknowledge that this is not, perhaps, an ideal car in which to commute…) If you subscribe to the theory that old Land Rovers look best when they’re battled scarred and well patinated then you’ll agree that Alex is an absolute beauty! The bulkhead and rear chassis has been the subject of some work previously but no enthusiast would approach this car with anything other than a full restoration in mind. He or she might strike lucky and get away with only mild fettling but a chassis-up refurbishment would probably be the most cost-effective (and fun!) way to get Alex back on the road. The front door tops have started to rot, and the bulkhead is starting to rust at the bottom. The bonnet-mounted spare wheel is to hand. Having said that, there is no evidence that Alex has ever been seriously off-roaded, so he has avoided the sort of conditions that have led to the early death of so many Land Rovers.





1972 LandRover Series 3 109 (tax exempt).

Sellers Comments - This is my lovely old 1972 109. It requires a gearbox, as it expired last week after several months of trouble free use and I simply don't have the time or motivation or space to work on another one just at present. I've used this vehicle every day for several months and it's about what you'd expect for a Series 109, The mileage wont be correct (it never is on these) and it requires a couple of welds (as pictured), but there is no terminal corrosion, the chassis itself is pretty good and the 4 cylinder petrol is about the smoothest I've ever owned and I've had many series Landrovers. There are the usual dents and knocks and custom additions, here and there, but nothing really noticeable. I believe this vehicle was in an earlier life, originally a 6 cylinder petrol The gentleman who owned it previously had spent over several previous years, a great deal of money on it, ie new rear cross member, headlights, new fuel tank, brake cylinders and shoes, replacement engine, swivel pin housings etc and much much more, in fact I have all the bills and they add up to an awful lot! Due to the gearbox problem, i'd advice the buyer to have a trailer winch, as I can't guarantee it will pull itself up under its own power, it may, but could totally give up the ghost when it's half way up! the problem does sound rather terminal! I'm always totally honest when selling, as I myself would not wish to be sold anything with horrible surprises in store! so please, if you've any questions feel free to email me or phone me on 01946 693929. Please remember that this is basically a 1948 designed 44 year old ladder chassis truck, so subsequently drives like one, It's noisy, zero to 60 is via a calendar, it's rather uncomfortable and with the turning circle of the Exon Valsez, so if you're not used to them, you'll be in for a nasty shock! but after saying all that, I still love 'em! This vehicle is advertised elsewhere so I do reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Happy bidding and I hope you win!





Very early 1958 Series 2 II Land Rover SWB 88" barn find restoration project Possibly the earliest series 2 in existence number 313

Sellers Comments - Land Rover Series 2 1958 This is number 313 off the production line so could possibly be the earliest series 2 in existence. I bought this with the intention of restoring it to its former glory. However my misses has decided to put a stop to that with the announcement of another baby, cheers! I have never had it running but the engine does turn over and the gear lever moves between the gears. The clutch and brake pedals are seized but it does roll freely. Bulkhead has rusted, mainly around the door hinges. Chassis has rusted all over. Bodywork looks fairly straight, paintwork is tatty. The number plate has been valued at £1,200 This was to be my first Land Rover project so although I'm no expert I will do my best to answer any questions. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone to arrange a viewing.

Land Rover lightweight,date built 1st Feb 1979

Sellers Comments - Here we have my Land Rover lightweight,date built 1st Feb 1979,date of dispatch,10th Feb 1979,Destination (dealer) Central Army Vehicle Depot,Hilton (for C.A.V.D.,Ashchurch) Label (line) 3/335. She is a 12v 2.25 petrol with 36k reading on the clock which I was told is genuine,I found this lightweight in a barn in June,she has been off the road since 2007 until I bought her,after some tinkering and fitting new plugs,coil,points,leads,distributer cap and arm and drained the old petrol and filling with fresh fuel she fired up.

I drove her 10miles home with no issues,I have had to clean an free the brakes and adjust the wheel bearings with some added fresh grease along with a rub down and fresh paint with NATO green and Matt black,this was done via a roller but has come up very well and is tough and durable paint.

I put her in for mot in August and all she needed was the brake light switch adjusted again and the sidelight sorting,the only advisory was the windscreen marked,although she should of had two advisorys due to the left hand footwell needing repair which I haven't been able to do due to recent hand injury,otherwise I would repair with ease as I'm a welder/mechanic by trade,the chassis is perfect and not a patch work qualt,she has had a new rear quarter chassis in the past.

Onto the bulkhead now and the prone top panel is again perfect along with the rest of the bulkhead,the only part being the footwell needing repair but that's the only welding repair needed.
Fitted with a good Fairey Overdrive and Free wheeling hubs is another added bonus reducing fuel costs and improves driving over 55mph,she drives very well with no excessive free play in the steering or slack in the drivetrain or excessive oil leaks,perhaps a few minor drips from the gearbox nothing to be overly concerned about.

The clutch has a slight Judder when pulling away but I'm not a clutch rider so it's not an issue,the brakes are spot on as to be expected as I've checked cleaned and adjusted the brakes,no spongy pedal or pulling when braking,as a lot of people seem to say,they are all like that,well not any of my series Landys as I actually like to maintain mine :)

The engine runs lovely and has been fitted with a Webber carb,she pulls well and has no excessive smoke ,she could benefit from an oil change now as not been able to do this due to recent hand injury although the oil is still very clean,along with a fresh coolant change,the cooling fan has been removed and a kenlow kit fitted.
Interior is in good condition with a seat upgrade to cloth series seats with head rests which in my opinion do not suit a lightweight But are comfy,the heater unit works well and is complete,along with that is a military fire extinguisher in passenger side footwell area which adds to the character,the doors are good,but drivers door top is a tad ropy but is still strong and not swinging in the wind but will need to be replaced in the near future,on a positive note they are just standard series door tops and readily available unlike some lightweight parts which as people who are in the know are hard to come by nowadays,and complete vehicles are fetching silly money.

In terms of service history all I have is the last mot certificate from 2007 a heritage certificate issued 2014 a complete Land Rover lightweight army manual and an old V5 along with the current up to date V5 the same owner since 1998 only 3 former keepers.

The hood and sticks are in good condition and she is water proof but the hood is showing signs of age so not new,back bench seats are fitted along with lap belts,the split tailgate is good with the straps to hold the pic axe and shovel sadly I don't have these but they do come up on here from time to time.
She has not been used as an off road toy but a piece of military history I have driven her like 30 miles since she was motd,so I'm testing the waters here as I'm not in a great rush to sell and a realistic reserve is set,viewing is welcome by appointment and test drives around the block so to speak.
