Looks like it just needs a wash Smile

With hindsight, I should have brought a V8 instead of my FFR.

It was registered in March 1982, and the tax expired August 2007

Is it just me, or does that seem to be on the cheap side? I guess it could be rotten as a pear underneath, but if it is a genuine V8 I'd have put the price higher - after all, they didn't build that many did they?

I agree with websnail, looks like it just needs a wash. Might. Even need the usual moss in the side windows removing too.

You putting in a cheeky offer then Geoff??? Smile

Right now I want its rear left hand side alloy door top that's come from an early 110. Everything else I already have two (or more) of, but I only have one of those and am after another - not desperate enough to buy the whole truck for it though. But as it looks the twin of one of mine, I would kinda like to see it go to a good home. Pity it isn't its original masai red - and I wonder what's the story with that hideous roof. Have the feeling this vehicle was once much cared for, but was a long time ago.

I already have one in Masai red so not in a hurry for another! Laughing

From what I can see and considering it has been off the road for 11 years it needs more than a wash IMHO! Looks to me like it had a new rear crossmember at some point but from what I can see and read the rest is fubar!

Yule, although they are getting extremely rare, tbh, they never actually go for as much as people think they should and don't sell as quick as you might think considering how the magazines maintain how desirable and sort after they are. I have seen comparable condition 88's go for a lot more in the past few years.

It's accident damaged at the rear offside - if it's ever had a new rear crossmember (and it probably has - what old Landy hasn't?) it needs another, 'cos I see daylight and fresh air where crossmember should be. A whole new chassis probably in order anyway - seller good as says so. Also looks like it might have had a stainless exhaust fitted at some point, but it oddly exits rather close to where the petrol tank ought to be! Probably worth more in pieces for parts than as a whole for resto, which is why so many of these sadly get broken up. Horror stories about V8 fuel consumption keep demand down, but I've never found it so much worse than a 2.25 that it wasn't worth it for the greater performance - obviously there's no comparison with modern cars on that score (consumption that is - it holds its own on performance) - I wouldn't want to use one for work if I was a commercial traveller! Unique and rare parts is the other problem, but that's part of the challenge/fun to me Smile

Still well worth a cheeky offer I'd have thought. Might put a few hundred offer in myself - just for a laff.

I think it will sell. Parts alone are worth it - front axle alone worth "a few hundred" Paul.

Oh ain't she pretty Very Happy

On a more serious note:-

If anybody is seriously considering this as a purchase, Llantwit Fardre is only 17 miles away from me in South Wales. Please PM me and I could go and have a really good look and take detailed pictures.

Looks too good to be true (but I am very cynical.)
