Description

- Two farmer owners from new and just 53,400 miles

- Complete with working Capstan front winch and PTO underneath

- Still has its grey elephant hide interior in "fantastic" condition

In 1967 Land Rover introduced the 2.6 litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine for the 109" models. LKJ 217F must be one of, if not the earliest, road going example available anywhere, having had only two farmer owners from new. The vendor advises the low recorded mileage of 53,400 miles is genuine and that it comes complete with working Capstan front winch and PTO underneath. To the interior it retains its grey elephant hide which is said to be in "fantastic condition".

A detailed history file contains a mint and original folder supplied by Caffyns Ltd with an original sales document for the price of £879 and 13 shillings, original buff log book, old mot certificates and a very interesting written history. It details how the original owner used to carry his pigs to market in the rear, with their piglets travelling on the roof with a large roof rack as an open-air enclosure! This is why the protective roof covering is fitted, to prevent any indentations on the roof! Dry stored for many years, this rare 6-cylinder Land Rover has just had all new brake cylinders and shoes fitted and is now supplied with MoT until the end of February 2018. Surely a must for any Land Rover collector.
