1989 Land Rover 110 with Penman Trailer
Handy bit of kit with a fresh MOT and ready for work; no VAT on hammer price
This 1989 Land Rover 110 was delivered new to the Singapore Armed Forces and appears to have been used as some sort of a communications vehicle.
The 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated diesel engine is fitted with an alternator the size of Europe - producing 24 volts and presumably enough oomph to power all sorts of comms equipment.
The odometer shows under 29,000kms (18,125 miles) although we have no history of its time overseas so have no idea whether this is correct or not - although such low mileages are certainly not uncommon with such Military vehicles.
The hot climate has been kind to the structure, the chassis and bulkhead remaining rock solid. The bodywork has had fresh paint at some point recently and there is plenty of it in true Military tradition.
It could do with a pair of new batteries - and some attention to the glow plugs we suggest, but was running and driving around the site as it should. Refinement is notable by its absenese, but it has plenty of practicality and an indestructablity which inspires confidence.
Road registered D256 BSA in 2019, it carries an MOT which expires in March 2022 with just one minor advisory (brake pipe corroded, covered in grease or other material rear (rear axle)).
This tough old truck has a NATO tow hitch and is being sold with an ex UK army Penman trailer. These are beautifully made items and share many cross-over components with the Land Rover tow vehicle such as wheels and disc brakes. The tub is made from stainless-steel and, like its tow vehicle, is virtually indestructable.
The other bit of good news is that the owner of this combo has kindly covered the VAT on your behalf, so there will be no VAT on the hammer price.
It has spent most of lockdown sitting in an underground carpark in Notting Hill in London and the vendor advises us that given its age, it could potentially be enjoying its retirement from active service in the United States where these old Landys are highly sought after as they were never imported in period.
Starting a new business or simply needing a useful bit of kit around the farm? This unit would solve a multitude of problems and all for about the same price as a quadbike and trailer! This could be the only vehicle you ever need to buy...
