1964 Land Rover Short Wheelbase Station Wagon, Road Tax Exempt

Sellers Comments This is a Series 2a short wheelbase Station Wagon with a lot of Series 3 parts. The bulkhead and 2.25 petrol engine are Series 3 for sure. It is road tax free It is also a seriously competent off-road vehicle with very good low mileage mud pattern tyres on grey modular wheels, the suspension has been raised and it has some under body protection and rock sliders. I have driven this truck where you cannot walk. It has a Defender rear door with wash-wipe and heated glass. It also has an electric Kenlowe fan and a NATO hitch. It starts and runs beautifully However - it has not been used for many years and needs a lot of work to get it back on the road. The interior is in a very poor state and it desperately needs a coat of paint. A large tin of International Harvesters red will be included. It needs a new door top (included). The original inward facing rear seats are included but not fitted. It really needs a lot of TLC. Mechanically the main issue is brakes, it has been standing for so long that they are binding and need freeing off. I recently replaced all the ignition components, starter motor and battery. It starts instantly and runs smoothly and quietly. This is a truck which would suit a true enthusiast looking for a project.
