Footnotes

  • This 2.25-litre petrol-engined Land Rover benefits from a 'last-nut-and-bolt' restoration completed in November 2012 (detailed description available). In very poor condition but complete, the vehicle had been standing for circa 10 years before the rebuild commenced. The chassis was irreparable so a new galvanised one to original military specification was made by Richards Chassis of Mexborough, South Yorkshire. Both axles were replaced with new, boxed, ex-military items fitted on new OE military-specification springs together with Woodhead shock absorbers and new bushes throughout. The steering and braking systems were overhauled and the steering wheel refurbished.

    The original engine proved to be beyond economical repair so a rebuilt, boxed, military unit of the correct type was fitted. The hoses, fan belt, oil and filter were renewed, while all the ancillaries are either new or overhauled. A new exhaust was fitted and the radiator re-cored by a specialist. A complete new clutch assembly was fitted and the gear/transfer box overhauled by a specialist and refitted together with new prop shafts. Both fuel tanks were pressure tested, repaired, stripped and repainted before refitting, since when the fuel gauge has not worked. A new OE military wiring loom was installed together with all new engine electrics, new dashboard instruments and new military vehicle lights plus overhauled wiper motors, new arms and blades, and horn. The five wheels were blast cleaned, re-sprayed and shod with new Goodyear Extra Grip military-specification tyres and tubes.

    In a very poor state, the body was extensively repaired using a combination of new and new-old-stock panels. The rear body was scrap so a replacement was restored with a new floor and other panels including a new, boxed, military tailgate. All body cappings, the windscreen frame, bumper and bumperettes, etc were blast cleaned and re-galvanised. A new, boxed, hood stick set was fitted together with a new canvas tilt.

    Other noteworthy features include a very rare military water jerry can mount; a new set of Exmoor trim 'elephant hide' vinyl front seats; an original Pyrene fire extinguisher; and a set of pioneer tools. Restored to virtually 'as new' condition, 'EEC 127C ' has covered 333 miles since the rebuild and is offered with dating certificate, sundry bills, road fund licence to 31.10.14, MoT to 13th November 2014 (no advisories) and Swansea V5.
