This is our 1962 Land Rover Series 2. It's registered here in BC as a 1962, but the VIN decodes to a 1959. Either way, when you have spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours you can get Collector Plates for the old girl.
We don't know much about this old Landy, she was bought on a whim in the twilight with a view to restoring, and then day dawned and Adam realised that his lack of skills, dedication and time means that it would become an ornament, so here she is for the next custodian. Parts are readily available and at long last, a restoration might pay off financially as they get scarcer and value increases.
This old bean needs a full restoration. Engine is in place, so presuming the two and a quarter petrol, but the tranny has been removed and is MIA, so a transmission would need to be acquired. From what I remember from my own '63, it's a regular Land Rover Series transmission with no syncro on first or second, but maybe a full syncro would fit. They do pop up locally used, and can also be purchased from specialists new or reconditioned, It has a big non standard bull bar on the front and on the back. It also has Selectro Heavy Duty free wheeling hubs.
Most parts will need a refurb to some degree and the safari windows are both broken. There's no key. Assume chassis rust. They are relatively simple to work on, and rewarding to drive, you'll feel cold, you'll go deaf and you'll develop large biceps.
To point out the obvious, it will need trailering. Adam can deliver if you pay his gas/ferry fare/ food bill and hotel bill if applicable.
Landy is at our yard in Nanaimo, BC and can be looked at. Registered in BC in our name and ready to go.
We have thinned our classic heard, but we still have a 1967 Daimler V8 and a 1967 Rover P5 Saloon available. We are open to swaps/deals etc if it means the old girl gets a new lease of life.
