Since its arrival onsite, we have discovered that this
unusual Hi Cap diesel was sold by us back in 1998.
It had spent most of
its life on a large Estate in Shropshire having clearly led a busy life working
on the farms. Its new owner intended to restore it to its former glory, but
never quite got round to getting on with the job, by which time the chassis was
in a very parlous state.
He passed it to the vendor who is always up for
a new project. He organised to have the chassis replaced which has now been
completed - the body having been lifted away and a replacement (excellent but
possibly not new) chassis fitted. This has included work to the brakes with new
cylinders etc and new shock absorbers and fixings too.
A change in plan
has meant that he is no longer committed to finishing the job - which is where
you come in. The vehicle does need some more work, but all basic and simple Land
Rover stuff. The underpinnings and (most) of the panel work is perfectly
The engine starts and runs - we have even used it for
several small jobs while it has been with us onsite and the brakes, although
largely new, will need some bleeding and adjustment. Available for the cost of
the replacement parts and chassis replacement alone, this rare pickup would make
a really useful tool around your own Estate in the country, or as a general
workhorse if you haven't got one of those.
There is no paperwork supplied
with the vehicle and the registration number is no longer on the DVLA database -
presumably because it spent so much time untaxed in its early days.
