A little help from a Series expert please

I have been out of the LR game for a few years and want to jump back in. I found this 88" Series 2a for sale locally. The body looks to be in good shape, I have yet to see the bolkhead or the frame. I'm wondering if it is worth what the current owner is asking. He is asking $7775 with a clear title.

Quote:
1970 Land Rover series 2a 88 inch wheelbase. 55,000 original miles, garage find. Last plated in 1974.British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate included which shows date of build, first recorded owner, matching chassis and engine numbers color, etc.
Runs good, my plan was to keep the patina on its near perfect aluminum body, and make a nice driver out of it. never hit, whats left of original paint, no rust frame sun baked interior. Brakes have been 100% gone thru with new shoes, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, rubber lines, new clutch and master clutch and slave cylinders and lines, trans rebuilt, trans broke in 74 and parked until I bought it a few years ago. $1000. in new trans parts during rebuild. Runs and drives ok. A/C has not been checked out but new idler pulleys and belt. All new cooling hoses and water pump. New battery, new carb and fuel lines. Needs small amount of finishing such as headlamp wiring and battery light is on when running.
Thanks
Thanks,

Saw that the other day when i was dicking around the phoenix craigslist, i was just out in glendale, I'd of looked at it if i saw it for sale when i was there, i wont be back out there till mid march, so im not help.

Its a pretty good price as long as it runs like he says it does, its an ideal "patina" series because it has all the age and fade without the dents and rust.

If I buy this Series I'm not planning on sinking a dime into the A/C unit other than a freon charge. If it doesn't work, its getting removed.

I hope you plan on running no door door tops in all seasons but winter, the sliding windows offer little relief to warm weather lol.

A/C on a series LR? That's just wrong, IMO... I'd be cutting it out, even if it worked well!!

XC registration best known for being on early RRC. J points to 1970
AC compressor may be a great air compressor!

It may be a 4000 truck but no way is it an 8000 truck.

55,000 original miles and the interior upholstery removed? The seat upholstery looks a bit tired in the photo, though it may just be dirt. Look closely at the pedal surfaces & driver's seat. The indicator may have been around the clock once or twice.

There is a very active Southern Arizona LR club centered around Phoenix & Tuscon. The members mostly drive coilers but there are a few folks there that know their way around leafers. You might want to email the club and see if you can find someone to check the truck out for you.

They would also have a better idea of what trucks go for down there in the valley.
