The truck has just had £1000 spent on it in the last month at my local LR garage having a brand new steering box, 2 new front swivel balls and seals and service

The original chassis was restored with a rear crossmember and new front outriggers cut from a damaged td5 chassis and still retains its factory Land Rover vin, the engine mounts were moved to suit a td5 engine also as this was the route he was going down until a lot of tdci parts came up on copart at our local branch, he ended up paying a small fortune at the time for the engine/gearbox/transfer box complete/bulkhead/ 2 fronts doors/ 2 wings and a seat box, luckily the chassis was still at the blasters so was then brought back to have the engine mounts moved again to suit the tdci engine before taking for galvanising, once the bulkhead was powered up the clocks showed a mere 600 miles, now showing 6900k 11 years on! 

The dvla were notified at the time of the build and sent pics, due to the original chassis and the fact they deemed the axles and steering components as direct replacement parts they were happy for the truck to retain it’s original reg and not be put onto a Q plate

The truck was subsequently sold on eBay in 2011 after completion to a gentleman down in Stourbridge, my mate asked him for 1st refusal if it ever came back up for sale as he only sold it at the time to find his new house build, around 4 months ago after 11 years and 6000 miles the buyer rang my mate and offered him the truck back, he rang me to see if I was interested in buying it, as I’ve said above I’ve just spent £1000 sorting a leaking steering box and swivels meaning trouble free oil leak free motoring for the new owner
