Traka has to go - job loss forces reluctant sale

Hi,

range rover classic 3.5 v8 with a NCF body

Chassis was washed down, treated with Ferrozinc and then treated with tetraseal stuff
Engine has been fully set up, tuned and emission checked etc and runs great.
Properly made and fitted windscreen.

Bits needing attention:
1)Bonnet could do with some minor work as it fell off my trailer on the way back from having just been sprayed! I know people that can do this easily if needed.
2)Power steering pump leaks slightly over time but i've just kept topping it up as required.
3)Speedo cable doesnt work -- it looks like a broken bit at the gearbox end but i was going to swap the dash out for an electronic one at some point and re-do the dash.
4)bit of door rubber trim needs to go round the doors to prevent rattles.

Axles are original
Engine has a 38 DGA (s/v) carb on it
Suspension is from somewhere like paddocks, island 4x4 or john craddock - cant be sure as it was on when i got it
fuel tank is from some sort of van apparently

It needs a soft top to finish it and ACE products nr Maidstone was where i was going to take it. (£150)

It's tax runs out at the end of this month but MOT runs til next year.
It is registered as a "Range Rover" still and i have the letter from DVLA confirming the details.

In the pictures, it looks like an overhang at the rear and i was going to weld some more cage round to make a sort of boot. The cage could be altered and extended easily.

What i've been suggested not to do is to cut the rear off and make it shorter as this will then need an IVA test. I cannot confirm or deny this so please check if you are interested.

Total sum of parts used is over £5k for this.

It's on a Private Plate which is NOT FOR SALE with the vehicle.

Cage, doors, bonnet, bumper shell cost £2700
Tyres were £800
QT diff guards were £120
QT Rose jointed 6 degree radius arms were £395
Suspension lift kit was £250
Front EXTREME Turrets and rings were £120
New front seats were £200
Wheel Locking nuts £30
Winch £200

I'm not splitting any items so please don't waste your time asking!

Offers over £2,750.00

Cheers,
