Meet 'Alfred', ie 'Alfie'

Meet our highly restored 1960 Land Rover Series II 88. A client of ours named him Alfred or "Alfie" for short.

History

This particular truck is a highly restored UK-built early year Left Hand Drive 1960 Land Rover that was imported into Colombia in 1960.

We even have paperwork showing the date and name of the freighter back in 1960. We have a document showing the truck was imported into Barranquilla, Colombia and sold to a doctor.

Per the chassis number 144005786, this truck is a Series II not a Series IIA. Alfie also has the more rare single side/turn signals.

This truck was extensively overhauled as of 2011 with over $5000 in mechanical upgrades including engine, transmission, steering, brakes etc. We have a thick file with paperwork and reciepts going back to 1987.

Condition

Truck is rust free. Paint is a gorgeous color pale green. Top and interior are under 3 years old. The only thing that keeps this truck from being a 10 out of 10 and a $40,000 truck is the paint is about a 6 out of 10. Note the galvanized trim was painted over. However, it is clean and rust free and suits the character of the truck.

Mechanically this truck drives fantastic. Engine starts in one second. It pulls perfectly in all 4 gears and steers perfectly. The brakes stop straight.

Note the recent upgrades:

  • 4 new shocks
  • New rear axle fabric bands
  • Recent carb tune and oil change
  • Brand new exhaust
  • All new lap belt seat belts with seating for 7
  • New Pirelli military 7.50 x 16 tires
  • New interior vinyl door panels
  • Original 16 inch rims were recently sanded and repainted correct Limestone beige
  • Rebuilt alternator
  • New Roversnorth front floor mats (very nice by the way)
  • New rear floor mat

Please note the original documentation showing when the truck was imported from the UK into Barranquilla, Colombia and sold to a doctor. We have a complete history file going back to 1987.

It is our opinion that these early restored Left Hand Drive Land Rover Series trucks are undervalued in the classic car market. They are quite rare and the parts are readily available and inexpensive.

A Unique Truck

Alfie is getting a lot of attention here in Florida and is a lot of fun. We took it to an all British car show recently and it was the only Land Rover amid many classic Rolls Royces and Jaguars. Classic trucks are fun and please take yours to the local cars shows. People love seeing them.

This is my personal favorite truck and in my opinion represents a fun investment. You can drive this affordable collector truck for several years and down the line repaint and clean up the galvanized trim and have a 10 out of 10 truck.
