Land-Rover offered for completion of restoration. 1960 short wheelbase safari station wagon. Originally from Arizona and never known to have been in road salt. There is also no evidence of any accident, assuming one dismisses minor panel bruising. Surface rust only on exposed steel parts. Our requirements for this machine before dispatch are that the body be straight, its surface rust issues be addressed, that all systems and equipment operate properly and that it be roadworthy and safe. At the moment the majority of those issues have already been addressed. This vehicle is a favorite of the owner because of its unusually straight panel work. Not all panels are perfect by any means, but the majority are superlative. It will need two outer wings and a minimum amount of panel work in a few spots. We do not require that it be resprayed, just that the rust issues be addressed properly. Its good points include the overall body condition, its former venue (Arizona plates are still mounted), an essentially sound and quiet running engine and drive line, rebuilt, correct and original Solex carburetor, proper and correct electrics, all good and original glass, original and nice Warn M11 hubs, resprayed rims and virtually new steel radials. Also the vehicle is 98% original and correct and complete, upholstery excepted. There are issues with the left floor and rear cross member, which both require straightening; the latter will require a small amount of welding. The charging system will need a bit of sorting, and there are minor wiring issues, but overall this vehicle offers wonderful restoration promise. It has been purchased in such that we can offer it at a very attractive price, obviously contingent upon the balance of the work described being carried out professionally before delivery to the new owner. This vehicle is priced, subject to the terms described, for $4,998.00.
1960 Series II Land-Rover offered for restoration completion. Similar to above vehicle except in the following respects: the panel work is 99% perfect with the exception of the tropical panel, which requires minor straightening. Its good points include its being an approximately 90% original and correct vehicle, its never having been in an accident or in the salt, its having undergone a large amount of restoration work (including new and Genuine Land-Rover front wings), and its original venue (California). It will require new tires, a respray, upholstery restoration, probably a wiring harness, and general mechanical sorting. It devolved to Dare Britannia as the fallout of a divorce, so we are offering it at a fraction of the equity in this fine restoration candidate. Rust is wholly a non-issue. The original color is the number-one-requested pastel green. Offered at $9,800.00, contingent upon completion by Dare Britannia. Outright sale is not offered. Terms: minimum of $1,000 per month restoration budget. Similar completion terms to above vehicle, but upholstery restoration must be carried out.
Land-Rover 109 regular offered on similar terms to the above vehicles. Again, this vehicle is a superlative, rust-free and 98% straight machine with unusual provenance. Under restoration for a former client, now deceased, this vehicle has undergone the following: panel work necessary to ready it for respray (original color: Land-Rove marine blue), segmental respray of steel dash and radiator cowl, rebuilt engine, gearbox and axles, hydraulic system rebuild throughout, fresh wiring harness, and fresh engine peripherals as required. Currently it has no dedicated roof system, so it can be delivered as a pickup, a hard top, a camper or a soft top. Offered as seen, for completion by Dare Britannica at $36,000. Further details available upon request.
