Welcome to the forum Dan.
If you’ve got the time and space I would say get the truck running and driving again. You may get “hooked” on your old truck again and want to keep it, if not you won’t have trouble selling it. These models are getting rarer to find in working condition. I look forward to seeing your truck.

Awesome! Looks like it’s had one of the ex Belgium army engines sold off in the 90’s?
Where’s the truck located?

Looks salvageable. Wonder what's the frame like after all those years in the woods.
Were you able to pull her out of the bush today?
Hmm. Bedder Mtn or Vedder Mtn?

Right Hand drive and still has the UK plates. Means you can find out it's history prior to your 20yr ownership.
If you are interested in selling it, let me know.

Very smart looking Series Land Rover, with a racing red engine!
What are your plans for her if you don’t mind me asking. I bought a 57 Series one in November.
- ‘61 Series 2 88" (project restoration)
- ‘57 Series 1 88” (next in line)

Sold:
- ‘74 Series 3 88" (now sunning itself in the Carolina's)!

Where was that? What a great “discovery”. Envious.

Wonderful! Is that close to Melissa and Wilson’s house? There is an old Series on the property next to theirs on Vedder Mtn.

I am in Chilliack if you need any help.
