I have a 1961 Series 2 Landrover for sale, which I have owned for the last 29 years, its a 2:25cc Petrol, 88” in Deep Bronze Green with 38,971 original miles on the clock.
I bought it back in 1989 and used it for a couple of years, but with limited finances and a young family decide to put it into storage in a garage where it stayed until 2010.
I started to restore it just enough to get it back on the road, aiming to keep it as original as possible but with any 57 year old vehicle I needed to replace some parts, which included new tyres, Leaf springs, shock absorbers all round , petrol tank, swivel joints, clutch etc
The chassis and bulkhead are solid, I have had a new near side door post and foot well fitted. The engine runs really well, I haven't really done anything to the engine. There are some oil leaks. I have also just had it MOT'd, although it didn't need it as its over 40 years old.
I am selling it with a lot of spares, a new Exmoor canvas hood, sticks which I had powder coated from new and sprayed in Bronze green. Tail gate plus cat flap, 2 extra spare wheels with Firestone Town and Country tyres. New rubber door seals. I have put new doors on, as a temporary measure so I can work on the original doors, there is some rust on the inner frame, but I haven't had them repaired yet. There are a some other spares which I will include.
There is also a lot of paperwork that goes with the vehicle including confirmation of the age, from the VRO of the Series 2 club based on engine, chassis and body serial numbers, I needed this for the DVLA to have an age appropriate registration. It was on an A plate when I brought it as unfortunately the seller kept the original registration.
I also have got all the old MOT's going back to 1984 when the mileage was 11,445 to 2018 mileage 38,889. I also have all the receipts for parts that I have brought over the years.
I am selling it as I have only done just over 4,000 miles since I brought it 29 years ago. I would like it to go to someone who will enjoy and treasure it as I have.
It's an original Series 2
Price £ 8,750
I live in St Helens, Merseyside, if anyone would like any further information give me a call.
