Sellers Comments For sale is a 1971 Land Rover Series 2a 109" pick up. It has been used on a local shoot for the past 4 years, and in that time it hasn't done a great deal of miles. It is being sold as the shoot has just finshed its last season, and is now surplus to requirements. It is MOT'd until feb. 2018 and is tax exempt. It is fitted with a 300tdi engine, coupled up to the original 4 speed gearbox. Everything works fine, high and low range, diff lock, and doesn't jump out of gear or anything like that. Free wheeling hubs are also fitted. All the electrics work, wipers, washers, heater on both speeds, and fuel guage (currently has a full tank of diesel too). Power steering has also been fitted which works very well. The chassis on this is superb, absolutely no rot or signs of rot at all. It could be galvnised given the condition of it, but im unsure as its been painted. The bulkhead is solid, i think the footwells have been replaced at some point in its life. Around the vents there is some rust bubbles under the paint, but appears to still be solid. The canvas is OK, probably could do with replacing depending on your opinion, the odd pin hole has emerged, but it does keep the weather out. This is very straight vehicle for its age and is an ideal work horse, as well as an appreciating classic. The vehicle drives very straight, no play in steering or anything, and stops well too, without pulling to one side under braking. Any questions please dont hesitate to send me a message, Thanks for looking.
Sellers Comments Land Rover Series 3 S.W.B. Safari with Deluxe Bonnet Fitted with Fairey Overdrive, Free Wheel hubs, and nearly new Seats. This Landy had been laid up for a while and I decided to buy her and use her while we are doing up our house. Wife got fed up with me in muddy boots getting into our everyday cars!!! She is dual fuel with gas and petrol. to get her back on the road she has had a lot done. New Swivels new bearings throughout both axles, new track rod ends, new drag links, new hoses, Parabolic springs all round, new fuel tank, new slave cylinders, new clutch master and slave cylinder, plus hose, Seals etc. etc. I have receipts for well over £2600.00 to get her back on the road. The Chassis has been plated in a couple of places and went through the MOT with no worries. She also has electronic ignition and a stainless exhaust with stainless performance manifold! Sounds good!! There is still work to do on her to bring her back to full glory. There is a set of 5 original steel wheels with tyres (crazing a little) Bad bits the gearbox does jump out of second and 3rd occasionally. The A (Bulkhead pillars) will need replacing. As she is used daily as a workhorse so she is not immaculate inside!! This is sold obviously under auction rules and no warranty is given. Contact must be made within 24 hours of sale ending and a deposit of £500 must be paid via paypal at end of the auction. Cash on collection within 7 days of end of auction. No exports!
Sellers Comments Before the end of the week this landrover will have a full 12 months m.o.t. I took it today for its first m.o.t for some years. it only failed on some minor points which I have now done.first was handbrake low efficiency, small bit of welding by bump stop on front o/s, tidy up some previous welding on rear chassis [ piece about 4 inch long] and secure the brake pipes on rear axle. we bought this as a project and have fitted new rear shocks; new brake cylinders on rear;new brake shoes all round; new brake master cylinder; new fuel pump; new washer motor and wiper blades; wiper stop switch and speedo cable. the chassis has a few patches here and there but all seems strong. the bulkhead also has been patched in footwells but again seems good and strong. its quite tidy inside the full roof lining is in good clean condition there are no seats in the rear and the front seats are not the best- one rip on drivers back rest and seams come apart on other seats but are still useable. it has full safari roof with air vents which all open ok. the paintwork is very good but could do with a good polish then it would look very good.there is a little ripple on the n/s/r panel but not very noticable but then it is 44 years old so wont be a show piece.it drives very well all gears including low box all work as they should. it drives very well and pulls along well at low revs. the tyres are ok they are 285x16 so are very wide but dont catch on any springs or body work. all in all it is a nice usable landrover which looked after should give good service for years to come.Tax exempt. Please disregard my lack of feedback as in the past when I have sold things I used my wifes ebay account. viewing welcome cash on collection.

Sellers Comments When I bought this it had a Ford 2.5 York diesel fitted but I got fed up wearing Amplivox when I was driving so I put in a very smooth running petrol engine. I know it is a 3mb and it should have a 5mb but I couldn't give up this engine. According to the B Card this one spend a number of years in storage at VSD and then served with 39 Inf Bde and 11 UDR. It is clear from the holes in every panel where the workshops bolted the macaroon to the bodywork that she was once a Mini Pig. I don't mind the holes as it shows every panel is original. It has the benefit of Fairey overdrive I have replaced the following with new: Alternator Starter Distributor Water pump All hoses Both manifolds Stainless Steel exhaus All shockers All brake slaves All brake shoes All pipes Brake master Clutch slave HD Clutch New rear seats Seat belts All floor and gear rubbers all new engine and gearbox mounts Carb All new door seals. Two NOS doors from Cyprus (£600 collected on holiday) Door tops and window runners with new locks Handbrake lock Electric cooling fan Head Gasket replaced. Saw that pistons were like new after a deck Front bumper and bumperettes All new bolts where required Battery Underwing mud shields all replaced Sourced rear and under bonnet too boxes Extra loud Italian horn Even moved the number plate back to it's original location! Everything works with the exception of the heater. It does work just the five way switch has me beat! Since the pics were taken I have replaced the tub floor and all three tub cross members. I have and will fit the car tie down hoops too. Front and rear propshafts taken off and cleaned with new gaiters although I saw today when I returned from a 100 mile trip out that the front one is ripped so I will throw in a new one Both tanks were taken off, cleaned inside and out and painted with new mount hardware Chassis is excellent. Has had new outriggers and new rear cross panel. Air vent excellent. lower Bulhead has had repairs in the past Tyres are excellent (4) I have done loads more to this Lightweight which I love because I passed my test on one in 1975 and drove one on Police duties as an MP in Sennelager, BAOR for two years.

First registered in 1983 ( first of the modern day land rovers) Previous owner said it was ex military ( Royal Navy) then he owned it for 15 years. I've owned him for almost 2 years now but due to my personal situation I'm regrettably selling him. I turned him into a basic camper and have taken it all over Europe. I'm 6,5 tall and I sleep just fine in the back with girlfriend also. He has a solid 200tdi engine with very low millage. Underneath is solid, never has any welding. Bulkhead and chassis all in great working order. Salisbury rear axle with all round disc brakes so perfect for extra weight. Military Jerry can lockers which are great for over-landing and camping. Had a gearbox replacement just before Christmas, input cog in the transfer box also replaced.

New reconditioned gearbox New clutch (heavy duty clutch and heavy duty clutch fork) Less than a year old tyres ( Goodyear wranglers all terrain) (March 16) New doors bottoms New headliners and door liner Barebox in the rear (ideal for storage) Safe under front seat. Low millage (60000) these engines can go for 200000 plus if well looked after. New hinges and wing mirrors All new anti bust door locks 3 sets of keys New bed mattress and new wooden slates. Curtains all round Rear tinted windows New Bushings New battery Immobilizer New UJ joints all round Unique Number plate (A110 HVH) Spares included Mud flaps Bonnet spare wheel assembly Land rover manual Old style lights Spare oil, Engine, gearbox transfer and axles.

Sellers Comments - Reluctantly I am selling my much loved Land Rover Series 2A. Had many £££ spent by the previous owner and by me over the last few years. Galvanised Chassis with bolt out cross member Parabolic Springs with pro-comp shock absorbers 200 TDi engine Series 3 Gearbox (so full synchro, makes it very useable) Overdrive Discovery 1 differentials so it keeps up with modern traffic no problem Reconditioned Steering box Original Smiths Heater MOT`d until November 2017 Free TAX V5 is in my name. New Battery Fitted last month. Serviced and oil change November 2016 Also included with this sale are: Spare Series 3 Gearbox Full set of Spare wheels with more road friendly tyres fitted with plenty of tread left. Enough spare parts to keep you going for a long time! This is not the prettiest Land Rover but is a real wolf in sheeps clothing. Goes really well, brakes are standard but will lock up without too much effort. Would benefit from a bit of TLC with the body and paintwork but was built to use. Underneath is a very solid reliable motor. NO overseas bidders. Any bidders with less than 10 positive feedback will be removed. Thanks for looking.

Sellers Comments Built on a Galvanised chassis with a 2.8 V6 engine mated to a 5 speed LT77 gearbox. Gearbox has an Ashcroft conversion to mate the original transfer box to the LT77 maintaining the series 3 features and drive ratios with an extra gear. Engine is a 2.8 V6 from a Granada giving about 140 bhp simulare to the old 3.5 V8 which propels this to 70 quite quickly for an old girl. Bulkhead has been repaired with new foot wells and A pillars and is now in good condition. Chassis is Galvanised looking about 17years ago but is still in perfect condition. Rest of the body is in good condition but is not perfectly straight this car has been used in trials but is not badly damaged. Wheels are Wolf wheels with Kumo mud tyres spare is the same. Interior is as you would expect but with Defender seats. The Landrover drives well with good acceleration and top speed but please don't expect modern car handling this is a 35 YO Landrover. The chassis has not been modified so a return to factory spec in the future could easily be achieved. MOT until Feb 2018
