THE MOTOR CAR OFFERED

This Land Rover, built in late 1965, is a very original, unrestored and solid example. The Marine Blue paint over its aluminum skinned exterior shows a magnificent patina, and the interior appears to be entirely original. Plaid blankets cover what is left of the elephant hide vinyl seats while the rear seats remain original and intact. Fitted inside the roof top is a storage compartment with a radio and speaker as well as a rifle rack in the rear window with white paint appearing mostly original. Matching body numbers are visible on the door tops and bulkhead areas. The engine is believed to be original, though no engine number is provided on the Heritage Certificate.

As the story goes, the previous owner purchased the Rover while shooting the set of a film on location in Montana in 1967 and returned to Southern California with it not long after. Last registered in the mid-1980s, a friend of the seller found the Rover from a Southern California estate where it had been parked under a cover. The Rover was then returned to the road after a thorough servicing of required components and a fresh set of period correct tires. Since then, the seller has accumulated 5000 miles of very enjoyable driving. The vehicle proved to be quite reliable on a long run up Pacific Coast Highway to Monterey for car week last year and on the dirt back roads of local mountains. As a daily commuter or just for fun with the windscreen down, a certain amount of attention is gained when driving this Rover. It is very well liked and appreciated by other drivers and people about, always seeming to start stop light conversations and car show friendships whenever its out.
Included with the Rover are several original, used or new components, including some original tools, a used overdrive unit, which can be installed for higher speed highway cruising

This is an outstanding opportunity to obtain a delightful and useable preservation example of what is perhaps the best 4x4xFar with a perfect patina and a great candidate for the Copperstate Overland Rally event.
