Woops ive done it again, not another bloody landie, now with added disco for sale.


Recommended Posts

Not sure what the market for these are now as the seem to be priced all over the place,
Anyone care to put a value on this pile of old shite ;-)
I bought it with good intentions but decided to buy the hippo instead so this is now just sitting doing nothing :roll:
it drives really well with a nice tight gear change, engine starts first time and runs really nice,
it has chassis rust (don't they all) mainly back cross member, front driverside outrigger, and rear shock mount area,

That's true, I was looking for one for ages. But 2 weeks ago I found something else to waste my money on and I can't have 3 different cars within a month, the DVLA can't keep up.

 

J registration means a 200 TDi (unless it's a petrol?) so ebay is the place. Lots of them go for £1200-£1800 although I see a huge number re-listed so the fuckwit quotient is high

Snap it up, if not too rusty. Before I bought the Red Rangey, which I lerrrrrrrrve, I was looking for a decent coil sprung Landy, preferably SWB, but found the prices of non rotters to be a bit daft. I love Series Landies, but have to admit that coil springs and the slightly more modern engines and slightly less rough interiors of the more recent ones do help a bit when it comes to actually living with the heaps.

 

Old Landies basically rule, although I know Jack Shit about the TDi engine. Landies break a lot, but can be fixed a lot. They are impossibly fabulous as load luggers, mob of children and dogs carriers, and simply epic off road. They have a coolness all of their own, which just increases the more dented and scabby they become.

 

The one in this thread, with a station wagon set-up and that mahoosive roof rack, would be a perfect vehicle for taking 87,000 people plus all their kit to a Festival, or going on hollies, or doing Paris-Dakar, or just for smoking about in.

Even if no-one wanted to buy it as a complete car, they’re still worth a lot for parts. Body shells, if they’re reasonable go for fairly good money. It’s an evergreen car, people will always want Defenders or parts for them.

Does it have an mot? I would guesstimate between 1 and 2k depending on how rotten the chassis/bulkhead/doors are. Or you could sell it to the Americans.

 

Or spend some time and money making it solid and a paint job and it will be easily mistaken for a new £35k 110 station wagon.

Thanks for all the replies, sounds like its worth 1 to 2k on a good day so of to auction she goes, I really don't want to stick it on the bay of evil as its full of piss takers though, if anyone wants a landy project then i would take anything as a trade apart from live stock that is :wink:

 

I just want it gone as if i keep it for a long term project it will probably never be done :oops: and storage costs will eventually be more than its ever going to be worth.

I listed this landrover  and I had the bidder settings set to no low feedback buyers, no buyers outwith the UK, no buyers with strike against them, i did this as the last time i tried to sell childs quad someone from Austraila won it.

fine I thought until the item ended and I went to send invoice and this is the buyer what do I do now,

Neg the fuck out of him for not complying with the explicit instructions in the auction, and contact the 2nd highest bidder?

I did have buyer preference set to uk but for some reason he managed to bid anyway.

Got this email this morning?

Fookin Turkey Cypres wish he would make his mind up

Dear Sir,

 

Can you sent me exact address of the car please. I will manage transportation.

And i need registration papers and other document what you have because i will export item to North Cyprus.

Even if he is a scammer if its paid by paypal is there any way you can lose the money? Is the point of paypal not that they are taking the risk? Once they have accepted the funds and paid them to you, they are yours are they not?

 

If it turns out (unlikely) that he is legit. you wil need to ensure that the buyer understands it needs to be collected by a certain date though or will be scrapped.

Are Shoguns/Pajero's and the like better than these overall? I know they're LR and that, and therefore have a loyal fan base, but realistically, which is the best 'overall', the equivalent Shogun to this or the LR? :)

 

They've all got their plus points and problems. The big problem with Shoguns / Pajeros appears to be OMGHGF. But you'll see far more LRs being used in this country by off-roaders and farmers, so that suggests they're the better vehicle 'overall' for British conditions.

      It's a bit of an internal debate in my head as to whether to start a car specific thread on AS. My Mazda thread has become a reflection of costs of running a 25 year old car as a daily but doesn't get much traffic, my Mondeo thread has become a general MK1/2 Mondeo thread (happy about that) and my Invacar thread has become mainly about DVLA admin...but let's give it a go, see what happens.
      As documented in the news and elsewhere, here it is. Joey spud noticed straight away that it needs to be called Yummy with that number plate. But I expect the original owner was the proverbial little old lady rather than a yummy Princess-Di (had to been done) mummy.  In those days little old ladies had been Land Army girls in the war and could deal with the lack of PAS!

      It was just 7 miles up the road from me on the edge of isle of Thanet (which is where the Mazda came from too) and the current owners kindly brought it over from their marshland home in the sticks.
      Paperwork was minimal @BeEP has kindly posted me an excellent set of owner manuals, which is great, and makes a car seem more loved straight away,

      In consultation with @RobT who is a man of taste in such matters an appropriate keyring was sourced from eBay, priorities eh?

      In it's first week with me, I've had the tracking done at a cost of £40 that has sorted out the lopsided steering wheel and generally improved the driving experience.
      Soon, I'll do a list of prioritised jobs. It has an MOT until October. 
      In true AS fashion it has no role on the fleet, or no actual need. But after I failed to secure a second 323 coupé, I just had to have it! I hope it can make an appearance at a future Kent shiters meet, and maybe a very buzzy and bouncy journey to shitefest in May? We'll see.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
       
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
       
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
       
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
       
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
       
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
       
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
       
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
       
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.
       

       

       
      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
       
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
       
      If you're interested, let me know.
       
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
       
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
