1963 Land Rover Defender

Land Rover 2a 1963. Right Hand Drive. 2.4 liter petrol motor with 4 speed. Completely restored 3 years ago from bare chassis. Engine, gearbox and transfer rebuild. Less than 1000 miles driven since restoration. Capstan winch and Toro overdrive.

Vehicle started its life as a cab chassis and delivered to the Australian Government. It has had a total of 3 owners. Vehicle is rust free.

The gearbox was completely pulled apart and checked. New bearings and bushes, new gears where needed, and new synchro’s. The main shaft was professionally set up due to the need to get the shimming right.

The engine was pulled down to a bare block, new bearings, and bushes etc. new rings. The bore was checked to make sure it had not been bored out and new pistons used. The head was taken to a shop and new hardened valve seats put in to allow regular unleaded to be used. The head was set up by them with new springs.

It drives perfectly and starts up first time every time. Recently passed inspection without any problems. It has original Smiths circular heater and everything is functional. Previous owner had additional gauges fitted which are not original and just need to be connected. It also has cigarette lighter adaptor with USB connection that was wired to a second battery powered by a solar panel.
