Genuine LRPV on Ebay - Confirmation
« on: August 04, 2016, 12:37:14 PM »
As pointed out by Dennis, the Land Rover for sale on ebay is a genuine late S2A LRPV.

179-488

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Army-Land-rover-series-2-a-/122070601185?hash=item1c6bf98de1:g:y8QAAOSwWZ9XoStF

I have confirmed the chassis number with the seller. The seller also sent more photos.

This Land Rover is the same LRPV shown in the YouTube video - Battle For The Golden Road Pt1.

Seller sent these Scott. I asked for photos of the dash and tub. Tub has a large tank in it so he did not take any photos of the rear end of vehicle.

The dash has all the correct features of the LRPV including camo paint and MG mount holes in dash. The winch has the small SASR mod strengthening bracket mount to brush bar as well.

Thanks Stuart,

it's interesting but it is rough and missing a lot of the good parts, it's also had a water tank sitting in the back so the springs would be a bit sad, it does look like it's live out side it's whole life and the fuel hose to the carby looks dodgy so I guess the fuel pump and tanks are no good....

I do prefer the normal 2A LRPV's, you had one for sale a while ago is that still for sale?

Thanks for your help

Regards
Scott

Am I missing something here?

It's a classified ad on eBay. (Who does that?)
It's a high price
Has only four photos. All poor quality.
And from your talk with the owner seems to be hiding the bad parts of the vehicle.

A couple of things,

1.   This LRPV would look good in your pool room Scott,

2.   At that price, tell him he's dreaming! (depending on the condition of course!)

Hi All
I am very interested in this vehicle as they are a very rare commodity over here on the east coast. Can I ask who else is showing interest ain this truck as I am going to contact the seller and put in an offer. Is there any one over on the west coast who is into collecting these vehicles who may be also interested in this particular vehicle. I do not want to step on anyones toes or be up against ony forum members when I make that winning bid.
Cheers

You'll run out of room Rod.  But go for it.
Better still, park it in my new shed (arriving soon)

No one has bought it yet. It now has a "make offer" option on the ebay ad.
No one yet?

The items listed was 'ended' ? because the seller didn't list it correctly or something similar, so I guess we will just have to wait n see cheers Dennis :)
