For sale through AB4x4s Cleveland is super rare opportunity to acquire a very original Land Rover Series 2 soft top rebuilt on a galvanised chassis. If you are looking for originality then read on as these are like hens teeth! Registered as TFN 304 on 1st January 1960 in Canterbury.The registration is transferable and valuable but it would be a shame to part them after all these years. Built around September/October 1959 judging by the chassis number. Chassis number 141000609 makes its a 1960 model year petrol Home Market RHD vehicle. One family owned from 1965 until 2008 and one owner since then! In 2000 the owners decided to embark on a sympathetic restoration but insisted on keeping it as it came out of the factory.
It has mellowed nicely over the last 20 years and looks exactly what one of these should look like with an appropriate patina. The bodywork is also very straight with no nasty body filler present. All the spot welds are present along the tub sides which is rare and proves it really is all metal. Has covered a mere 2000 miles since the rebuild and drives accordingly.
The history file is vast with MOT certificates from 1978 up to date backing up the total mileage of 114,000 (showing 14,000 as it has gone round the clock). The original engine no 1510005070 was fully rebuilt with new pistons and a rebore and runs like a Swiss watch. The gearbox was also rebuilt where necessary. The bulkhead is superb and has had no welding or needs with excellent footwells.Lots of correct dated parts are present to include the radiator and carburetor which is so very important for its originality. Sits on Avon traction mileage tyres all round with good tread. The engine starts on the button with ease, pulls well and changes gear without fault. The addition of a Fairey overdrive makes cruising more enjoyable whilst the freewheeling hubs adds to its economy. We have added a brand new Exmoor trim soft top which looks really smart. On the inside we have added 3 new front seats and 2 rear bench seats making this a 7 seater. Comes with the correct Sparto lights front and back which is very rare!
The water pump has only this week been reconditioned. These were only made between 1958 and 1961 so not many around.I really don't think you could find a better one than this. Call Anthony on 07947608966 for any further info.
