$3,999 LHD 1966 Land Rover Series iia 88 "barn find"

This 1966 Series was rescued from a gentleman's front yard here in town. It sat under a tree for the past 14yrs...after 7yrs of leaving random notes and business cards on the gate, he finally reached out to us. With so many customer trucks at the shop this Series will be sitting for a long time in the queue. That being the case, we'd much rather pass it along to a fellow enthusiast so that they can bring it back to life and enjoy it. When we first arrived to pick it up there was about a foot of leaves and dirt packed inside the truck....it did wonders for the truck actually. The lichens and leaves protected the paint and vital bits. With the exception of the bulkhead, this 88 is in amazing shape. Approximately 20yrs ago the former owner tore this truck to the ground and rebuilt it onto a galvanized and sealed (undercoated) chassis. The frame is 100% rust free and in perfect shape. The body panels are straight and corrosion free. The paint is in great shape. Doors are a 7 out of 10 with only minor spots. The 2.25 petrol engine turns over, but we haven't tried to start it since the fluids/tank haven't been gone through. With a good once over on electrical connections, a fluid change and some fresh petrol this baby will be rolling. The bulkhead is the weak link here and will need to be replaced. The seats are weathered and cracked. Steering wheel is deteriorated. Transmission and transfercase shift well. This is a great deal on a rare 88. The sum of it's parts is worth more than our asking. We simply want someone else to enjoy this 88. Vehicle is sold with bill of sale only.
