Another Series for Jonathan?

Wolf, you'd better jump on this one before someone scoops it out from under you! All it needs is your magic touch and maybe a light nut and bolt restoration. Personally, I'd love to see something along the lines of the Bowflex and truck somehow integrated as one...Custom tire carrier time? Maybe a hitch-mounted Bowflex? Now that I'd buy! The camper is already diamond-plated, which is a plus as well.


http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1966-...item2c5d4a9f8b

From the listing:

1966 Land Rover Defender Series 2A

Price:US $20,000.00
Price: $20,000

This is a 1966 Land Rover. All the original drive train was removed and replaced with a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix V6 front wheel drive engine with Automatic Transmission and complete independent rear suspension and drive assembly. The Pontiac engine and Transmission had just under 13,000 miles prior to install. The Pontiac engine and trans is mounted to the original Aluminum frame section very nice. I put less than 2,000 miles on it since. I'm selling the Rover with the tool trailer and tools to boot. Dewalt tools, welder, sockets, wrenches, hammers, drills, saws, etc. (too much to list) The engine hoist and jack stands. all of the original parts to the Land Rover...EVERYTHING. You'll need to make a few trips. The Bow flex goes with it (like new). Yes I'm cleaning house. Take it all or leave what you don't want, but its all together for this auction.
I'll up load more pictures and give some more info later (check back). Rushed for time.
The original land rover had a 4 speed 4cylinder gas engine 4x4 frot and rear drive train. It did run but just too slow for me. Its plenty fast now. and the conversion I did makes it easier and cheaper to get any parts you need locally.
A complete service was done to everything, yes that means oil and trans flush with new filters too.It runs GREAT and stops GREAT with all new brake pads (the rotors are just fine). The Rover is very light and is fast to start and stop. Turns on a dime.
I'm selling everything and moving to an island (Hawaii). It would cost me too much to ship everything so my loss is your gain. REALLY.
There is some remaining things to do on the rover. Finish up the welding to cover the radiator area (both sides), a soft top, and a rear tire mount. Minor stuff. The four tires have under 2,000 miles and the matching spare is brand new. The rover was completely sandbalsted (everything was taken apart. The body had bondo on it previosly and I just left it and painted it Flat Black. Most of the body parts are aluminum (very light).
I have tons of pictures from the transformation. Too much to list. Feel free to ask anything. I have all reciepts. I don't even want to add it up.

You could work your quads when you are broken down on the side of the road. This might be the best truck ever.

I like how it says there is some "minor" stuff to do. This is too funny! He forgot to mention how rare this truck is!

I like how it has the Pontiac gauge cluster just bolted to the flat dash. What a POS.

Will you sell the Bowflex separately?
