NOTE: This Land Rover has the Original Fairy Over-Drive!!! That makes driving on Modern Roads easier, more pleasant and much better on fuel with much less effort on your engine. Make sure any Land Rover you purchase has the Over-Drive Unit or you will be dissapointed!!!! This is from Experience!

I have been asked several times about Restoration expenses. I have invoices for PARTS alone totaling a bit over $ 38,075.00 and that number iswithout labor. Again, I have seen these Trucks at all the Rover events and this Truck is easily a Show Winner!! I have cared for this truck as though it was a Family Member and it looks and runs exactly like you would expect a premier Land Rover to perform and look like.
