We bought this Landy 4 years ago to use and gradually turn into really useable utility vehicle with high ratio transfer box, LPG etc etc. Unfortunately other projects and the arrival of children mean that this hasn't happened, and it's barely getting used any more.
It does still get some light use and can therefore be driven away without any worries. It starts on the button and everything works as it should.
Please remember it is an old Series Land Rover though. As someone said, think of them as a tractor you can put your kids in, rather than a car that goes off road. It is good fun though!
+ Dry stored in my ownership
+ Recent service
+ Transmission brake, battery and radiator replaced recently
+ Station wagon hard top in good condition
+ Fairey freewheeling front hubs
+ 2.5 block
+ 50litre Landi Hartog LPG kit with vaporiser etc, excellent bonnet, excellent oil bath air filter. NOS bonnet catch and sundry other spares
Less good points:
+ Paint. It was originally Bronze Green, but it has been repainted by hand in what I presume is meant to be Light Green, or Keswick Green. Suffice to say that the reg is NVL, but instead of being called Neville, we call it Orville.
+ Paint 2. All the galvanising has been painted with Hammerite Silver. I'd intended to remove it, but never got around to it
+ Chassis and bulkhead. These are both original and as such have evidence of many repairs as to be expected in an old Landy
+ Tyres are high load 7.50 section and too large really for this vehicle, especially if being used on the road for any distance
+ There are a few non-original items. The seats are from a 90 (I think), the wing mirrors are series 3, and it has aluminium chequer plate wing and sill covers and the steering wheel is a small Mountney.
The LPG kit was from a family Volvo 240 and hasn't been used for approximately 15 years. It therefore needs pressure testing and a service, but I have no reason to suspect that the main components wouldn't be serviceable. It's been kept in a dry garage since removal from the old Volvo.
Overall this is an honest Series II that hasn't been tarted up and is an excellent basis for continued use, or restoration as we intended with the benefit of a 2.5 engine and some hard to find spares included. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
