(Although I'll probably regret it
Well I sold the yellow Landie but, for the sake of making
the deal, took this one in part exchange. It's a standard 2a with the
original 2¼ Rover diesel engine and standard 4-speed gearbox (no synro in
1st and 2nd!). It's no power beast but it's got great compression so
there's no stopping it, and it's so economical, especially after the
2.5TD (with it's dodgy rings!).
It's a nice original Landie with no hidden horrors.
It's not pretty and certainly would benefit from seeing some paint on the
body and wheels - it's a true case of what you see is what you get, and I'm
getting fonder of this one than I was of the last!
