Land Rover 2a 1963 restored

Land Rover 2a 1963. Right Hand Drive. 2.4 liter petrol motor with 4 speed. Restored 3 years ago from bare chassis. Engine, gearbox and transfer rebuild. Less than 1000 miles driven since restoration. Capstan winch and Toro overdrive.
Vehicle started its life as a cab chassis and delivered to the Australian Government. It has had a total of 3 owners. Vehicle is rust free.

The gearbox was completely pulled apart and checked. New bearings and bushes, new gears where needed, and new synchro’s. The main shaft was professionally set up due to the need to get the shimming right.
The engine was pulled down to a bare block, new bearings, and bushes etc. new rings. The bore was checked to make sure it had not been bored out and new pistons used. The head was taken to a shop and new hardened valve seats put in to allow regular unleaded to be used. The head was set up by them with new springs.
The vehicle is currently in transit from Australia and will be sold with Texas title and license plates.
$14,900. Text John 832 433 six,one zero,three

That looks like a pretty good truck. Unique, but kind of in a good way.

Your price is probably not far off, if it is 100% working condition, and without any problems.

But I don't think you can say it has been fully restored.

I kind of like it though. I could see this thing running around here in the Northwest, and part of our club some day. GLWS.

Thanks for your post. I have deleted the word "fully" and also have posted a few new pics showing some of the restoration. I was going by the previous owners description.
I was recently in Australia and purchased the 2a along with an ex army Perentie. Was undecided on which one I would hold on to once they arrived in Texas. I have decided to keep the Perentie and therefore wanting to sell the 2a. Would be open to any reasonable offers.
