1960 Land Rover Series IIA for sale $25,900 firm

My name is Charlie I am the owner of Volcan 4x4, LLC. My company specializes in importing restored Toyota Land Cruisers and Nissan Patrols into the US from Colombia. We are starting to bring Land Rover Series into the US and our first Land Rover is this UK built 1960 Series IIA.

If I posted something wrong here please advise me as I am new to this forum and want to follow the rules. I plan to bring in restored Spanish built Land Rover Series Santana models soon as the UK built ones are very rare in Colombia. I hope also to import some 110 5 door models but they are relatively rare.

Shipping/export costs are higher from Colombia than Europe due to taxes and transport issues so I plan to send highly restored trucks at $25,000 and over and take advantage of the high quality restorations we can do down here at lower cost than the USA.

This truck is in Colombia now. It will be imported into Tampa, FL very soon.

This particular truck is a left hand drive 1960 Series IIA. It was imported into Colombia in 1960. I have some importation paperwork/history. I have a thick folder with all the work done on the truck since 1987. The owner spent over $5000 on the mechanical since 2011 including rebuilt motor, steering box, transmission on and on... Truck is very strong mechanically and starts right up. Truck is rust free. Only thing that keeps this from being a 10 of 10 truck is the paint is average about a 6 out 10. Also the galvanized trim was painted over as you can see. The fuel gauge does not work but there are some aftermarket gauges that work.

Truck has...

New interior within 3 years
New top within 3 years
Rebuilt motor and all mechanical within 3 years
Brand new 7.50 x 16 Pirelli military tires
Original rims were sanded and painted with anticorrosion paint and then Limestone color
4 brand new Gabriel brand shocks
New exhaust to be installed
New lap belt seatbelts to be installed
Lucas headlights
Rear floor has scratches but is rust free. Will be painted.

A signed deposit letter at the agreed price and a $10,000 refundable deposit made to Volcan 4x4, LLC registered in Florida will hold the truck. You can fly to Tampa and see the truck. If you do not like the truck we will return the deposit.

We have imported 3 trucks so far and sold them for between $30,000 and $54,000 and are focusing on quality. We have 6 trucks inbound to Florida now mostly FJ40s and FJ43 Toyotas.

This is a great truck. We named him Alfred or Alfie for short. You can see more photos and videos on my facebook account "volcan 4x4" and on my website volcan4x4.com.

This truck has not be listed for sale publicly yet. I wanted to start here.

Long post. Thanks Charlie

Red truck next to the Rover is an 82 Toyota FJ43. It has 265/75/16 or 32 inch tires. Interesting that the little Rover sits nearly as high as the Toyota. This is the first Series I have ever driven. I love the direct manual steering and the little motor. It drives like a sports car compared to my FJ40s. Much lighter truck.

$45,900. Truck is 1982 FJ43. Floors never rusted. Thorough mechanical review with both hard top and a safari soft top and new interior. AC etc. Truck is LPG gas system. 5 custom traditional rims and 5 new 32 inch AT tires. I sold an 81 FJ43 recently. Red too! I am specializing in FJ43s now because they are rare and best place to get them is in Colombia. I just sourced a very very nice 1974 FJ43 for a customer in Heath Grey.

See if you can see the project album. There is an album for Alfie the Land Rover too.

There are probably less than 50 FJ43 models in the USA. Recorded sales for top quality FJ43s are from $40,000 to $77,500. The truck I am working on is a rare and desirable 1981 and above model with two tops and options. Also very complete. I have sold 4 trucks so far all within 10 to 20% of asking price sometimes discounting for sale to classic car dealers as they make the purchase decision quickly and do not back out like a retail buyer. Please review mecum.com or hemmings.com for pricing on FJ40s. Good 1981 and up FJ40s are median price $35,000 let alone a FJ43 of which I know of zero for sale in the market right now. I just sold my 1981 FJ43 in the $30K's with a good discount to a dealer in May. The 1982 FJ43 is a better truck with more options. Land Cruisers are up 10% since last year. The Land Rover series market I am new to and is a little harder to figure out as there are fewer comps and condition runs from rusty to very high quality. I think a LHD 1960 model with good history, rust free and good mechanical is worth $25,900. Another Tampa LR Series in the same color is asking $40,000 on Hemmings but has a much nicer paint job and detailed engine bay as I have disclosed. I have no qualms talking market pricing as it helps me better price my trucks within the market and educates prospecive buyers. Thanks

I love the look and the romance I've attached to these but am not terribly familiar with them or their workings....sooooo, what are the yellow and red knobs for by the stick, I'm going to assume something to do with drivetrain?

Thanks mcuh!

Will take offers below the 'firm' $25,900. I have too many trucks! This is my favorite truck though. Just drove it yesterday. Truck now has brand new exhaust. Inspected the truck on a lift and it had two small holes in the rear passenger chassis wing. repairing it today. Barring Colombian paperwork issues (and "manana" issues, truck should ship out next week arriving mid July. Truck now comes with a bottle of Bombay Saphire.

For "that price" you get this... My first time driving a Series with the windshield down. Most fun I have ever had in a car/truck. This truck pulls up the Colombian mountain in 3rd gear with power to spare. Feels quick. I imagine at around 45 mph it is all over. We fixed the two holes in the rear wing and repainted. This is a lot of fun for $25,000 in 2014 dollars. But what do I know? Checking small issues still and truck gets a professional paint polish. Hope to sign export papers next week but Colombia is in the midst of world cup fever.

Thanks a lot. I guess this forum is a complete waste of time. I would think that offering interesting Land Rovers would be of interest to some people. If nothing else for the photos of different models to enthusiasts. I don't mind a discussion of market prices but that is now two posters with very unserious comments.

Reminds me of the nasty offensive craigslist email I got from someone who scolded me for asking $50,000 for my frame off restored 1983 FJ40 truck. Truck later sold at Mecum for $40,000 and then later for $54,000 via dealer.

If you are not a serious buyer why be so cavalier. Maybe you two should just allow someone that does want such a truck to buy it?

If you believe the price is off let the market forces dictate that.

You're not going to make any friends or sell your truck with comments like this.

The truck looks nice... But folks here know their sh..tuff and I see it as constructive criticism.

Firts time posting and it's a For Sale.

Anywhoo... welcome to D90
