Land Rover Defender TD5 Challenge Truck

Sellers Comments Land Rover Defender Challenge Truck has been rebuilt using genuine TD5 parts, vehicle is fitted with a TD5 engine, R380 Gearbox, has a TD5 bulkhead, TD5 rear tub, has full TD5 interior. The vehicle is fitted with central locking, electric windows, two alarm systems and a tracker. On the outside of the vehicle it has a full external roll cage and challenge front end. It has a 5" suspension lift with custom made training arms front and rear. The diff pans unbolt. It has front and rear ARB lockers with front Ashcroft hardened shafts and CV joints and heavy duty drive flanges. It has hardened shafts in the rear with hardened drive flanges as well. The vehicle is equipped with a Warn 8274 winch with a bowmotor 2 and Gigglepin end plate. Has 5 37" maxxis tyres on mach 5 wheels. The spare tyre is brand new and has never been on the road. It is fitted with a sump guard and a fuel tank guard and rock sliders. The engine ECU has been chipped by alive tuning so pulls really well with 37" tyres. The vehicle has LED lightbars on the front and LED lights on the rear for off roading at night. The vehicle has been well maintained. There is no rust on the bulkhead or chassis. It has just had a front diff re-build with new bearings, new front swivel bearings and seals, new rear stubb axels and hub seals and new rear brake pads. The vehicle does have scratches and some damage to the near side rear of the tub as you can see in the photos (from off roading). The vehicle has a full MOT. This vehicle is a real head turner and draws attention wherever it goes but I am now looking for something not quite as extreme. Would take a more standard 90 or 110 TD5 in part exchange and cash my way.






Land Rover 90 defender 200tdi off road ready not 110 rangerover challenge truck

Sellers Comments -
for sale is my much loved Landrover Defender 90 County

She is Fitted with a Discovery 200tdi Engine thats on 108k

She had her LT77 Gearbox and Transfer box professionally overhauled and reconditioned around 5k ago 

Also fitted with a Heavy duty Borg and Beck clutch at the same time 

The M.o.t is until September 2017

I have owned her for 2 years now and in this time other than the gearbox deciding it had had enough, she has been absolutely great for everything iv needed.

Genuine reason for sale as Unfortunately she just doesn't get used enough to warrant owning her due to my young family.

I originally purchased her as a fully standard truck and have over the past 18 months fitted everything you can see

She was originally a horrible pastal blue colour when i got her so me and a friend set about sanding her back and re spraying her in M.O.D grade satin black 

Around 10 months ago i had all the underside steam cleaned and then rubbed down.
 I then re painted about 80% of the chassis in red lead anti rust paint as i was going to wax oil and tetra shutz the whole underneath but unfortunately i just never got round to doing it.

She has never been taken to / or even any were near her limit offloading .
She has been used a few days a week for my short commute and every other weekend for a couple of hours steady greenlaning.


NOW FOR THE LIST:

12000lbs Warrior/ Champion winch 

Comes with a shiny new Winch roller as the other one was rusty and rough

2 County bench seats in the rear 

The previous owner replaced the rear Crossmember so that is like new !

Unfortunately The drivers and passenger seats are tatty but with seat covers on has never bothered me 

Comes with spare Airbox , starter motor , sprigs and shocks , chequer plate , exhaust mid box .

Also i have a full service kit to go with her  (air filter , oil filter , diesel filter)

I have 2x bucket seats (material not leather ) i purchased with the intention to fit one day . these could possibly be sold for a small extra fee is wanted by the new owner 

The Front spotlight and winch need wiring up.
I have the cable and the switches also the snorkel needs reconnecting.
I will try my best to get them done asap, if not both can be seen working 

The truck is located south Nottingham area . 
Ng11 postcode 15 minutes from city centre. 






ULTRA-RARE (& GENUINE) LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90 2.5D PATHFINDER LRPV

Sellers Comments -
this is one of a batch of only 25 Defender 90s built for the Ministry Of Defence and handed over to Ricardo Consulting Engineers for modification as ‘air-dropped transport’ – few are thought to survive.
The idea was that two vehicles could be stacked together – one at 45° to the other – on a special pallet and dropped out of a Hercules transport plane (with parachutes attached, of course). The back corners of the rear wings were modified to be demountable,  allowing the wheels of one  to rest on the rear wheelboxes  of the other and so take up less space. These vehicles became known as 'stackables' or 'piggyback 90's'.
Used initially by 5 Airborne Brigade, eight of these vehicles found their way to the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment (including this one) where they underwent further modification by the elite Pathfinder Platoon, to LRPV (long range patrol vehicle) standard. These were intended for a ‘more active’ military role and acquired various upgrades including storage baskets, ammo lockers, gun mounts, commander’s seat, Superwinch heavy duty winch and Southdown under-body protection.








1956 Land Rover Series 1 LWB

Sellers Comments -
1956 Series 1 109”
I have owned this Series 1 for almost 5 years and used to use it regularly, however as I now often work away it has been used less and less. Stood now for some time so I have decided to sell it to someone who will care for it and use it. Previously from the Scottish Highlands where it's owner had kept it for 20 years before coming to me (via previous owner who only kept it a month as he found it heavier to drive than expected)
Overall it is in fairly good and pretty much original condition. The body is straight with no damage of note and has had some painting over the years. There have been repairs on the chassis/hangers as would be expected of one this age. It starts first time but could do with a tune up to idle smoothly, the battery and leads have recently been replaced.
The petrol pump was replaced at some time in the past with a non-standard unit located down by the tank which had since failed. I have replaced that (again non-standard) to make sure it all runs. I still have the original glass sedimenter bowl so a future owner can refit an original type pump if wished.
Brakes and steering checked over and electrics (such as there are) are working. As it has been stood, the brakes do rub and need bedding in again.
Cab is the “luxury” one with a bench seat back, roof and door linings – “luxury” is a relative word although the seats are surprisingly comfortable on the move. Original heater fitted and working. Has original starting handle and an original type screw jack and handles.
The bulkhead has some rusting around the vent level.
Has four good tyres with plenty of tread fitted plus a spare that is usable.
Canvas is not the correct one, belongs to a later 109”. It was fitted when I got the Land Rover and I retained it to keep the rear tub dry. I did consider getting it altered to fit or buying a new one but that is for the new owner now – sticks are in good condition.

Happy to try and answer any questions, contact me to arrange to view.

Suffix "A" '72 Range Rover V8 based Land Rover 90 Soft Top *Tax Exempt*

Sellers Comments -
This is a very special vehicle, it is a Suffix "A" 1972 Range Rover 3.5ltr V8 with a 10" shortened chassis and a Land Rover 90 body fitted. The vehicle is still classed as a 1972 Range Rover on the V5 and hence the vehicle retains it's Historic Vehicle classification with the DVLA and is therefore tax exempt. 

I bought the vehicle from its second owner since the conversion, who had limited information about the history and the conversion. All I've been told is that the original owner, spent about 2000 hours on the conversion back in the early 2000's. The conversion was done very well however, you might even think it was factory specification.  He was a member of the Norwich 4x4 Owners Club but has since moved away. I have been meaning to find out more of the vehicles history however I never have got round to it! If some more history could be found I'm sure it would be extremely interesting as I believe that there were even pictures of the conversion and the original Range Rover; the owner whom I purchased the vehicle off, saw a picture of the original Range Rover when he bought it. Whether the original owner has these images still, I'm not sure, as unfortunately I currently have no means of contacting him.

More about the vehicle:

The 1972 Range Rover Classic chassis and drivetrain is all original and the chassis number plaque displayed in the engine bay (see picture) 
The spec is as follows:
  • Original Range Rover chassis shortened by 10". 
  • Original 130bhp Rover V8 3528cc with rare twin Zenith-Stromberg 175 CD-2 type carburettors.
  • Original LT95 combined 4-speed manual transmission and transfer box. Central differential lock works perfectly as does the high and low range.
  • A genuine Fairey overdrive unit is fitted, which also works faultlessly and improves fuel economy enormously. 
  • Original front and rear axles with disc brakes.
  • The rear prop shaft has been shortened to fit in the shortened chassis.
The Range Rover drivetrain has remained untouched since I have had it, aside from a service as they are all in good working order. However, although it runs and drives well, a mechanical overhaul and rebuild would be good way to further preserve the original Range Rover parts, something I never got round to doing myself unfortunately. 
 
Further parts:
  • Suspension components are all original or at least period correct O.E parts.
  • The rear of the chassis has been modified and is fitted with a Land Rover 90 rear cross member.
  • The front of the chassis has been fitted with a Land Rover 90 style bumper. 
  • Rock sliders have been welded to the chassis and line up well with the body.
  • The original manual steering has been upgraded to a power steering setup, presumed to be from the Land Rover 90.
  • B F Goodrich Trac Edge mud terrain tyres with modular steel wheels. (Plenty of tyre tread left.)
  • Land Rover 90 side fuel tank.
  • Land Rover 90 dashboard and gauge cluster, with speedo milage reading at 154,270. However this is not correct for the actual vehicle because of the body swap. The correct milage of the original Range Rover is unfortunately unknown.
Restoration:

Last year the body underwent a minor restoration, as it was a bit tatty. I gave it a full respray in desert sand colour. I used U-Pol Raptor truck bed liner to give a unique look that suits the rugged styling of a soft top land rover. U-Pol themselves have also resprayed one of their own vehicles in this product, which can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezVsBjayjYA 
The coating is extremely durable and provides a water tight seal, keeping moisture out, practically eliminating the chance of rust. I felt that this coating would mean that when the canvas is rolled up or even removed, if it did rain (which in British summers is likely!), this would not be a concern as the body is protected by the Raptor coating. For a soft top vehicle I thought this was an excellent option, and the colour came out just right, with a slight military style yet still remaining subdued and simplistic for classic summer day cruising. Aside from the respray it also received some new parts, and repairs to the bulkhead floor sections.

New parts include:
  • All new brake, side and indicator lighting units and bulbs.
  • Headlights are only a few of years old.
  • Exmoor Trim canvas hood new last year.
  • Exmoor Trim half roll cage hood hoop with seat belt mounts.
  • Galvanised rear hood hoop setup.
  • Series 3 style half door and sliding glass tops.
  • Stainless steel door hinge bolts.
  • Side hinged rear half door with custom gas strut rear door stay.
  • Original Land Rover 90 seats re-upholstered with Britpart black vinyl seat re-trims.
Overall the condition of the vehicle is very good for the age; the original Range Rover chassis had been repaired in places where rust had set in but is now rot free and in good condition for a 45 year old chassis. The Land Rover 90 body is in great condition too after it's repair and respray last year, as described above. There are of course a few jobs and issues that will need sorting, these include:
  • The temperature gauge not accurate, the gauge is from a diesel Land Rover 90 and the temperature sender is a Rover V8 part, and hence does not really work.
  • The fuel gauge is also not accurate, I believe it is just the sender unit in the tank that needs replacing. This would be a Land Rover 90 part as the tank is a 90 part.
  • The windscreen rubber is cracking and could really do with being replaced, although it does not leak. 
The vehicle will come with a years MoT and a service along with a few extra parts:
  • Exmoor Trim pickup style mohair hood and front screen rail.
  • Land Rover middle front seat.
  • Spare wheel and tyre.
I am selling the vehicle to make way and fund my new project Defender but I will be sorry to see it go, it is a wonderful fun with loads of character and it makes an awesome sound from that Rover V8. Always a head turner and a very interesting vehicle to own. I have never used it for off-roading, just for bumbling along the country lanes and trips to the seaside. It really is perfect for those summer day cruises with a picnic or popping to a pub! The complete canvas top can be taken off, the door tops removed, the hood hoops removed and the windscreen folded down to make a proper sunny day cruiser or greenlaner!

Sellers Comments
Series 2A Landrover Pickup 

This vehicle was purchased for a film production.
The vehicle has had a full body repaint inside and out. Full service with nothing overlooked.

Its has had a complete new set of seats purchased and re upholstered to the requirements of the film.

The vehicle runs and drives as it should and has no known faults. It actually did a fair bit of driving for the production and never missed a beat.

4 x good tyres fitted with an almost new spare included in the sale. 
The wheels have been refurbed and paint to match the roof and is a real good looking vehicle. When transported many landrover owners where taking pictures of it whilst on the motorway and we even had a few people approach us and say what a great looking vehicle it is and how well it looks.

The vehicle is 48 years old and looks like its just come out the show room.

There is a few things that need doing to make this an a perfect vehicle but are only very small and cosmetic i.e - rubbers on sliding windows for doors and new window wipers that have perished slightly but that is really about it

If you wish to view the vehicle please contact me 07785382448
The vehicle is based in Hemel Hempstead.

If you have any further questions please message me direct. Or call me to discuss

Listed with no reserve as want to give everybody a chance to own a classic that really is a lovely vehicle and very collectable.

Please no messages with whats the buy it now price and silly offers.



The winning bidder should collect within 48Hrs cash on collection. A deposit should be paid of 10% of the winning bid immediately.

LAND ROVER SERIES 1 80" 1949 1600cc SERIES ONE

Sellers Comments - This auction is for a 1949 Ring-Pull Series One 80" Land Rover. It has just undergone a full ground-up restoration through our workshops and needs a little work to complete. These jobs include: Sourcing and fitting a new set of seats Sourcing and fitting a new Tilt New doors (or restoration of the ones supplied) Sourcing and fitting the air cleaner pipe It has an original 1600cc side-valve 161 engine and an overdrive fitted and is running and driving. It has a tilt frame and windscreen. Resprayed in Pastel green it really does look the business. It is running, driving and stopping. It still needs fettling so if you're not proficient with the spanners, this car is probably not for you. Lots of time and new parts have been put into this restoration and the owner has decided to focus on another project so this one has to go to make room. It is priced very reasonably considering what these cars are making right now. If the new owner wishes for us to fit the new parts and finish any other work required then we can negotiate that. We can also deliver for £1.50 a mile Re-listed because the (zero rated) bidder changed his mind! Please,no more time-wasters. A deposit will be required to secure the car once the auction is completed - CAVEAT EMPTOR!!

Land Rover IIB Forward Control Fire Engine (ex : Army Fire Service)

Sellers Comments - A 1973 Ex Army Fire Service Fire Appliance. The chassis is a Landrover IIB Forward Control with a 2.6lt 6cylinder in line petrol engine. It has a 2-speed transfer box with selectable 4-wheel drive & a PTO for the fire pump. The bodywork is by HCB Angus & it has a 350 GPM @ 10bar Godiva Pump. It was used in the Salisbury area & after it’s MOD service it was used during the construction of the Channel Tunnel as a first response appliance & then used by a demolition company for dust control. It was then purchased by myself for restoration. I restored this vehicle around 20 years ago (picture # ebay20 on flickr shows its condition just after restoration) but it has stood outside for the last 10, hence the condition of the bulkhead. Some work was done on the chassis 2 years ago & it may need a few more bits doing. Reluctantly, I have decided to let it go. I would much prefer it to go to someone who will restore it as a Fire Appliance. I have other (non-automotive) projects in hand & simply do not have the time to restore it again, although I will assist with it's restoration in any way I can. Apart from that I'm getting too old to clamber on, around & under it ! There are 8 more photos available on ; www.flickr.com/photos/50249857@N08/? which form part of the description. The Good Bits ; Road Tax is Nil Does not require an MOT The indicated miles covered could well be genuine – I have no reason to believe otherwise It Runs – all gears (inc’ Transfer Box & PTO) engage & don’t jump out Fire Pump OK (see “The Bad Bits) It’s Complete (see below) Lumenition Electronic Ignition Brand New Stromberg Carburetor Brand New Electric Fuel Pump Electric Cooling Fan Stainless Steel Exhaust All the gauges (except the fuel) work New Doortops Tyres hold their pressure Virtually all of the Landrover/chassis parts to restore the vehicle are included The Bad Bits ; Fire Pump needs primer casing to be replaced (replacement provided) Bulkhead needs replacing (good sound donor Bulkhead provided) Sheet Metal Welding required to lower “A” Pillars & above Footwell Fuel gauge does not work You need to understand that this vehicle is heavy to drive – it also weighs close to 4.5 ton with a full tank of water & 4 x Firefighters ! IMPORTANT – the Fire Kit IS NOT included, however, if the final sales price reaches or exceeds £1k I will “throw it in”. Also, there are 2 period uniforms, the MOD mechanical log book, an original Landrover Parts manual, a Godiva Firepump manual, 2 new vinyl badges for the cab sides, an original HCB Angus works drawing & a load of other spares. The vehicle is also advertised elsewhere, so I reserve the right to withdraw the vehicle at any time. The vehicle is privately owner by myself & as such is to be considered a private "sold as seen sale". A £100 non-returnable deposite via PayPal will be required from the sucessful bidder. Ballance to be paid either before or at collection which must be within 7 days of the auction completion (unless arranged otherwise). I would consider some form of part exchange, something more manageable like a series Landrover or a 12’ Box trailer (for my other main project).

LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 TD5 - SAHARA - EXPEDITION - CAMPER- READ FULL SPEC NEW ENGINE less than 20k miles ago

Sellers Comments -
The Land Rover and paperwork is with me, it is UK registered although LHD The V5C is signed awaiting new owner. Interested parties will be given his details should you wish to check my authority in organising the sale. Please contact me on 07565141000 if you need any more info. The following is his comprehensive description of the history and details of the vehicle. Please read for full spec. Please note a mph speedo was fitted when the owner registered it in the UK. The actual mileage is 137k, however it was fitted prior to engine change. The new engine has only done less than 20,000 miles and can be verified by receipts and MoT's which show the current mileage. This is not a toy and has even been to the Sahara. Thank you.

W923 VHN - A brief History.
This Defender was bought in May 2000 by a nurse living in Dortmund, who made a number of modifications to it and travelled extensively, including a trip down to Croatia. He fitted it out as a camper, adding the bed and storage boxes, the Eberspacher night heater and added lights and connections for a fridge in the rear of the vehicle. I'm uncertain of the year, but was told that the vehicle took part in one of the Love Parades in Berlin in the early 2000's decked out with a huge amp and speakers.
I bought the vehicle in 2008 and immediately took it for a biking and canoeing weekend in the Ardennes - for which it proved excellent. Since then I have taken part in the Sweden Off Road Tour, a trip to Poland driving around an old Soviet Military Training Ground, Off roading in North Wales and camping in the Sahara,where it performed flawlessly. The Hannibal roof rack with ladder and swing out rear awning provides sun/rain protection at a moments notice. When the vehicle is parked the tent side can be fitted to the awning to provide a fully enclosed space where you can cook/get changed/keep the fridge at night etc. There is a second awning fitted to the side of the vehicle giving a place to sit outside under cover. (see pics)

In 2011, the cylinder head failed, badly. Faced with the option of a reconditioned or brand new engine, I opted for the latter, very expensive option - better to do the job right first time than take a chance and run into problems later with an engine of unknown provenance. The cost was 7719 Euro's and the mileage then was 78,000. It has done less than 20,000 miles. Since then it has only been used for commuting and travelling to and from the UK, when it should have been doing something a bit more exciting. The time has come for me to pass it on to a new owner, not without regret. I hope that your adventures together are as fun and memorable as the ones I have had. Please see list below of vehicle spec, spares, tools etc which come with the vehicle.
