1970 Land Rover Series 2A 88" FOR SALE

This is a one of a kind Land Rover with GM inline six cylinder engine and an NV4500 5-speed. Engine is a 292 ci carbureted inline six cylinder from a 1975 GM pickup. Transmission is an NV4500 similar to a 1996 GM ¾ ton pickup. I installed this brand new transmission and a rebuilt transfer case two years ago. This transmission is a wide ratio transmission offering a 6:1 first gear and a .75:1 fifth gear. This allows a very low crawl ratio with the stock Land Rover 4.7:1 ring and pinions. With the overdrive this set-up allows comfortable cruising at 70 MPH while getting 16 miles per gallon. I have driven this Rover on a daily basis. I have also rebuilt or replaced many other parts and systems as can bee seen in the list below. But the highlights include the entire suspension and braking systems and all of the steering joints. I have used genuine Land Rover replacement parts for most of the stock parts I have replaced. For non –stock parts I have a design notebook with notes and a spreadsheet that lists part number and where they were purchased. I also have all of the receipts for the work I have done. The body for this Rover is all aluminum with an aluminum removable hard top. This is a very fun truck to drive around town and it is extremely capable off-road. Last summer I drove from Mariposa to the Rubicon, drove the Rubicon in one day and drove home the next, all with the stock suspensionand 31" tires. It does need some body work (scars it has a few scars from 35 years of adventures) and paint but mechanically this is a very solid Land Rover. It is located in central California about 1 hour north of Fresno. Here is a list of the parts that have been replaced or rebuilt in the last three years:
o Radiator
o Brake shoes
o Brake drums
o Brake master cylinder
o Brake slave cylinders (4)
o Most of the brake lines
o Wheel bearings
o Hub seals
o Swivel pins and all associated seals
o All six steering joints
o Fuel tank
o Transmission (Brand new NV4500 with all associated adapters, shifters, clutch, pressure plate, clutch pedal assembly, clutch master and slave cylinder, etc.)

o Both drive shafts
o Carburetor (rebuilt)
o Throttle linkage and pedal
o Resurfaced intake/exhaust manifold
o Cap, points, rotor, plugs and wires
o New exhaust system with Magnaflow muffler (routed high to avoid damage off-road)

How about some pictures!?

I'm new to this site and I can't seem to add pictures. I'll work on it more over the next day or so. For now e-mail me if you want pictures, I have a bunch of them.
