Description

I am selling this 1969 Land Rover Series IIA, 2.600cc 6 Cylinders petrol from my private collection.

This unit with its relatively rare engine is a joy to drive and it is in great shape.

Originally came to Portugal as a firefighter auxiliary unit that in the 80's went to private hands. Later, the previous owner removed the original red colour and gave it the Camel Trophy yellow with black details such as wheels, roof, grill and loading bay lip.

It runs on chunky mud tires, higher ride height giving a great stance!

Recently I gave it a major mechanical restoration to bring it to perfect condition, with more than 4.000,-€ in invoices:

New upholstry;

New read diff matching the dring diff and transmission perfectly;

New brake servo pump with 4 new brake pistons;

New hydraulic clutch pumps;

New fuel tank (old one very dirty inside;

New sparks and HT leads;

New loading bay cover taylor made with marine wood;

Side exhaust;

And a lot of small parts such as air vent rubbers, new bonnet holder, new door window seals, new rubber covers for gear and transmision levers, new windscreen water pump, bag and nozzles, etc.

The Landy does not leak anywhere, pulls, steers and brakes as it should be. The engine is by far the best thing, super tight, sounds amazing, specially with the side exhaust, gearbox is silky, in a car that you can drive anywhere.

As per faults, the top cover of the dash has 2 cracks that are soft enough to be repaired, the back door for the loading bay is missing the holding chains and the front windows are missing the locks.
The locks and the back chains are ordered from UK and they will go fitted with the car.
