1966 Series IIA. 109 (LWB) Land Rover 4WD 5-door Station Wagon. Left Hand Drive. North American Version 74. 64 miles on running gear. 700 mi on new engine.   Dark Green with Safari Double Skin limestone white Roof.   12 VDC Electrical with new fuse block and wiring.

This is originally a California vehicle with hardly any rust.   Purchased in 2010 and driven only 1. 00 miles during the first 5 years. mostly on country roads and not taken in rough off-roading situations.   After owning it 5 years. I decided to have a conversion to more power and also replace the old difficult to turn steering with power steering and replace the non-synch transmission with a Series 3 manual synchronized transmission as well as add a better power brake module.   The power steering and power brake parts were from a Defender and the transmission from a Series 3 land Rover. so all parts used were Land Rover for compatibility.   It is now a pleasure to drive and will cruise at 60.   I have put about 690 miles on the new engine in the 12 months since I got it back with the mods.   The motor is a GM 2. 5. 4 cylinder with a 2-barrel Weber carb which pulls hills nicely with decent gas mileage.   Starts and runs good.   The motor builder. who has done many like this. says it will reach 70 but I have not tried that. as I don't travel roads with that speed limit while driving in the mountains of Western Virginia.   I have had it up to 60 and it handles nicely.   The engine installation and the transmission. power steering and power brake modifications and installations were all done by one of the best Land Rover mechanics in the US. and the result has been very satisfying.

It also has a new radiator and it came with new black vinyl upholstery and a new rear seat from Rovers North.   It comes with a rear door spare tire mounting bracket that I removed that you can re-install in case you want to mount it there.   I keep the spare inside the back as it is heavy to lift the hood with it or on the rear door.   All gauges and heater work.   Upholstery and other work was done in California by British Pacific a year before I got it. so it is like new.   Workshop Manual included along with invoices for parts purchased and past State inspection reports.

The 4x4 part-time (front engaged manually with lock out hubs). transfer case works fine in both 4WD Hight and low.   You may want to consider re-installing the Farley overdrive which was removed during the mod which comes with it if you are going to do a lot of higher speed driving.   I don't do that. so opted to leave it off as they make a whining noise and is not needed for my use in driving through the country backroads and mountains of Western Virginia.   I have not had it in any off-road contest or events or driven on salt treated roads.   It has been garage kept for the last 7 years since I got it.

The Series IIA is widely regarded as the toughest Series model constructed and most desirable due to the “look” as seen in many old movies about African safaris.   It comes with the original safari roof and has good ventilation in summer.   The patina of the paint on this 109 looks like it just came off Safari rather than the showroom floor.

Clean Title. insurance and tags up to date.

Sale includes all original parts that removed in case you want to restore it to original which includes the original Land Rover 4 cylinder inline engine with 74. 64 original miles. original 4 speed transmission. manual steering parts. air filter and Farley overdrive.   The original motor was running fine and the transmission and overdrive worked fine when removed.   Keep the parts and restore to original or sell as parts.   All removed parts are strapped down on a pallet and ready to ship and I have a tractor with forks to load onto a truck.   Photos of original parts removed is shown in photos.

Satisfaction guaranteed if you buy it.   Pay the $1000 deposit and bring the balance to drive it and if satisfied. give me the money and I'll give you the title and Landy.   I will also guarantee with a 50% warranty paying up to $500 on a $1000 or more repair bill on engine and running gear problems experienced within the first 30 days or 1000 miles. whichever comes first.   If you have problems and you do the work yourself. I will compensate you if you itemize and price the work fairly.   Don't worry - I am a man of my word and will stand behind this guarantee.   The nearest shipping point for Dependable AUTO Shippers and other vehicle carriers is 17 miles away in Salem VA. so I can drive it there for shipping if needed.   I live on a farm so there is plenty of room for a carrier to pick up where it is now.

I will miss the fun of driving my Landy but am getting old and downsizing.   Also I don't use it enough with 5 other vehicles to drive as you can see by the miles I have put on it.   Serious inquiries only as I don't have to sell it and don't like to haggle or have time to waste.

The winning bidder is to make a $1000 non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of the sale.    I reserve the right to end the auction early. so please feel free to contact me at lcabbottbh@yahoo. com or through EBay with your buy it now offers.
