Footnotes

  • This 2.25-litre petrol-engined Land Rover benefits from an extensive 'body off' restoration completed in July 2012 (detailed description available). The chassis is a military replacement item in effectively 'as new' condition. It was stripped, repainted with Finnegan's chassis paint and then re-Waxoyled. The reinforced military axles and heavy-duty springs were cleaned, refurbished as necessary and repainted, and the rest of the running gear – shock absorbers, steering, brakes, etc – overhauled.

    The engine is a replacement military unit fitted by a previous owner, who advised that it had covered only around 5,000 miles before the current vendor purchased the vehicle. It runs well so was left alone other than having a new sump gasket fitted, while the ancillary drive belts, hoses, filters, etc were renewed. The gear/transfer boxes operate well so likewise were left alone apart from a change of oil.

    The original 24-volt electrical system was checked and found to operate correctly so was reinstalled using the original loom, new electrical relays and two new batteries. A standard NATO towing hitch is fitted to the rear cross-member but the 12-pin trailer socket has not been reconnected. Both fuel tanks were removed, pressure tested, found to be good, repainted in Finnegan's Waxoyl chassis black and refitted, since when the fuel gauge has not worked.

    The body was dismantled, the bulkhead receiving new foot wells and 'A'-posts, while the rest was found to be very good condition. Incorrect doors and door tops were replaced with new correct ones. The rear body-tub proved to be a new-old-stock replacement and is in excellent condition. After blast cleaning, the entire upper body was repainted in deep bronze green. All the galvanised body parts were blast cleaned and re-galvanised before refitting. Five split-rim 1-ton gun tractor wheel rims were fitted, shod with barely worn Goodyear Extra Grip tyres. The spare tyre is new. Other noteworthy features include a new FFR (fitted for radio) canvas tilt; correct original grey 'elephant hide' vinyl seats; rare cab-mounted water jerrycan and bracket; original-type Pyrene fire extinguisher (not charged, display only); and a correct Larkspur UHF/VHF radio installation including the radio table, battery box, operator's seat, etc (not connected, show use only).

    Taxed and MoT' to July 2014, the vehicle is offered with dating certificate, sundry bills and Swansea V5.
