They only made approx 1500 of these so they are the holy grail of Series 2's. Registered in Cheshire on 20th June 1958.
Astonishingly it still has its original engine fitted no 141803562 which starts on the button and sounds good. Original chassis plate in correct place on the bulkhead. The Land Rover has been off the road since 2004 and needs either recommissioning or a rebuild depending on your budget/choice. No brakes, clutch is working and all gears are selectable.
Chassis is original needing some work but has a home made rear cross member. Bulkhead not too bad, solid in most places. I believe that it was Marine blue when new which not many were so you will stand out in a sea of green!
Has a fairey overdrive fitted and freewheeling hubs as well. Seems complete and still has its correct early tailgate, wiper motors and screw vents as it should have. To sum up this is a really nice rare project that could be got back on the road by doing the brakes, some welding and general recommissioning. There are only a handful left with their original engines in place. Can be viewed off junc 14 M4 Near Hungerford Berkshire.
