1964 Series II A Find

My Brother-in-Law nabbed this from a Texas Ranch. Wanted to share and get some opinions from the Series Guys on the best route from here.

Cool. Winch alone is worth a grand. What is the black thing next to it? I thought I had seen everything but I have never seen that. It says stromberg and brake. Is it a hand brake to lock the brakes while winching?

Nice. The 5 door top on the 3 door truck threw me off for a minute...but I like it. What are the plans?

Would be fun and painful to resurrect/convert to a softtop but both of us currently working on a 110 and a 90.

depends what you want to do..?

If it's not too far gone, you could get it running, have fun with it for a year or so, clean it up a bit, strip off all the BS, and sell it for a decent profit.

Hard to tell the actual condition from those pictures. I do see rust, but its hard to tell how far gone it is. I like the psychedelic camo job!

I have a red '64 109 in similar condition, but has all the glass and such, deluxe bonnet, etc- let me know if you have interest as mine is too far gone for me at this juncture... Oh, and the engine turns over ;-)

Well I'm the "brother-in-law" that picked up the Series. It actually kinda found me. I was driving my 110 around town and a guy stopped me and told me he had one he needed to sell. Long story short I picked it up off a ranch in Leaky which is about an hour away from Kerrville. You have me real curious and wanting to find the ranch that has several sitting around.

I saw them at the Quiet Valley Ranch southwest of Kerrville. Look up the Kerrville folk festival you can find directions on their website.

Ok. I got on a better picture view and it says stromberg HYD (hydraulic) brake. Does it have a hydraulic pump on the PTO of the T-case? I have never seen a koenig hydraulic winch on a Land Rover. Anyway, I doubt from the pics it is that bad rust wise. ------ Follow up post added October 10th, 2014 08:45 PM ------ Who needs glass. Get a couple pieces cut for the windscreen and run it without the roof and door tops. The only glass that should be remotely spendy is the alpine windows and they look good. I just gave away some doors with great glass and I am sure the rest is not bad. If you were local I could probably scrounge a set for free or near enough makes no difference.

I'll have to get better pics of the hydraulic break and winch. I'll also see if I can find a pump. To be honest I've never seen anything like it. Rust is not bad - which is good.
I like your idea about running no top. Texas Hill Country is beautiful for going topless the majority of the year
Slorocco thanks for the heads up on the Ranch name. I'll see what I can find. Hopefully I can report back with a good find.

Thank you. I am very curious. I will say this, series trucks you can go all out (like Bill's 109 or Johan's lightweight or Randy's 88 -- all truly lovey), but there is something to be said for a simple beater series truck and if it is not rusty it does not take much to get them running and going with bad paint and dented panels.

PS you could even ditch the windscreen too. Or just fit some Home Depot plexi glass for $20 and run it folded down most of the time. :-) pretend you are in Africa with limited resources.

You can tell it's been in a barn for a while... But it looks like a good base for a restoration. Does he have any plans?

I like it Chad. Nice find! It was a beautiful day today...after the rain cleared out anyway and I took a bunch more photos. Let me know if it's okay and I will post them up for you.

Before I left the driveway I had already started making a list for you in my head as to why she should come live with me..*sigh*... I love series trucks.

Awesome!!! Post the pics!! I haven't had a chance to get pics up close on the winch and the break mechanism next to the winch, so hopefully you were able to. If not I'll get some ��
