Feeler 1958 Series II Diesel

The sale of this truck just fell through so it is up for grabs. This vehicle is not mine but I know it well and I'm great friends with the Canadian mechanic that did the restoration. The truck is currently in Guatemala and can be easily shipped to Florida or Houston with an upcoming container I will be sending. The owner is British and brought a lot of the hard to find bits for this truck from the UK. He spared no expense and is only selling it due to a job relocation. I am in no way financially associated with this sale, I just want to see this beautiful truck go to the right person.

Details:
1958 Series II 2lt Diesel
Only 400 or so diesels were made in 58, so this is a pretty rare truck. The truck was imported to Guatemala new in 58.

Everything on the truck is original, motor, tranny, drivetrain etc.

The restoration was done a few years ago - Frame off and is beautiful.
I have driven this truck and it runs amazing. The engine is fully rebuilt with less than 1,000mls since the rebuild. Only 86,000 original kilometers.

The seats are redone in leather and are in perfect condition.

The frame is perfect with no rust or issues.

Issues:
The only issues with the truck are the inside door panels and seat box's were sprayed with a sound deadener and when painted they cracked. Also the owner wanted the door hinges and grill black, please don't ask why I have no idea. Also the side mirrors are not the proper LR ones. All of these issues are simple and can be fixed before shipment.
Please send a PM with any questions. Asking 20k OBO plus shipping cost.

Thanks
James

Great Old School Series... Guess it would be worth about 25K here in the US... Diesel to boot!

Nice! Though the leather detracts, IMO, but to each their own.
It deserves to be driven to the US, not shipped.

The last running 2ltr diesel I saw was nearly ten years ago. You might have one of a handful left in working order.

Exactly why it should go to an enthusiast. If I had the spare cash I would buy it myself!

Ok guys...BUMP it's yours at 18k. This is a great price for this rare series. When this truck get's to the US it will be worth quite a bit more.
