Previous owner had cherished this LR for the last 5 years and it was purchased by him after it had been restored by the owner before and garaged since restoration. Although the history file is no longer with the vehicle the extensive work completed for the restoration is extremely obvious and was as follows:
-New Galvanised chassis (hand painted black) and bulk head
-Galvanised Windscreen surround
-New Wiring loom and fuel tank
-Full engine rebuild
-New drums, brake lines, shoes and master and wheel cylinders all round
-Fully repainted in flat matt green
-New canvas top
-4 new tyres and powder coated wheels in black
-Seat box has had new side panels and the rear tub has had new back panels
-New front head lights and galvanised front grill panel
-New front bumper and 3 new seats and seat belts x3
-Refurbished radiator and new clutch
-Reconditioned fairey overdrive unit

This lovely 2A has been slightly modified but in a good way. Series 3 front wings/ bonnet house the additional lights but it still retains it’s metal grill and original lamps too so gives it a cool unique look. Would be simple to reinstate it back to more of an original look but currently has a nice subtle point of difference.

The paint is in great condition and all panels are really straight and is a really nice flat matt green, more military style but it really sets this LR apart. One or two small paint chips and scratches but hardly noticeable.

It’s a rock solid LR that has had a lot of expenditure to bring it up to the condition it is today.

It drives well and all gears select easily. Decent engine power and recon Fairey overdrive just gives the LR that extra pace and refinement for those slightly longer journeys.

This is a reliable daily driver that has had all of the expense and time and effort poured into it by someone else so you don’t have to!

Standard springs (in the older photos) have recently been switched to all parabolics for a more compliant ride and it has just had a full service including all fluids, new rear hub seal, rear diff pinion seal and both track rod ends.

It’s a lovely LR that really is a nice place to be and with the added reliability factor and the solid nature of the restoration will be a good long term fun classic investment.

Tax and MOT exempt but has just passed an MOT, now valid until 26th April 2023.

Unverified mileage. Recent new speedo changed at 25,145 miles and is now showing 1,807 miles. Original speedo is still with the LR.
