What is it?

img_2411.jpg

In the process of buying this but would like a bit of help to what it actualy is?

Normaly it should be a series 2A but its got a 3.5l V8 in it, the log book says Make:Rover and not Land Rover? year of registration 01/09/1967,Chassis N°27108214D, Rigid body!

From a paperwork point of view how easy is it to put a 200tdi engine in it?

Thanks in advance

Jason

What a seies 2A with lights in the grill & wings?

Not got a problem with the French side of things, it's still registered in the U.K and would be easier to do any engine changes first before registering in France as it's a nightmare here afterwards :angry:

What about Log book saying Rover & not Land Rover?

It's made by the Rover Car Company, so I don't think it's a problem.

What is the procedure for changing the paperwork for an engine with the vehicle on a U.K log book?

Speak nicely to the DVLA, explain that you have changed the engine & fuel type and wish to make the records straight, and send them the V5 with the new engine number written in the changes section. If you're up front and honest (or at least, do a good impression) they don't seem to mind.

Thanks FridgeFreezer ;)

I also have a series 3 2,1/4 Diesel that's well poorly so the idea is to make one out of 2,dont know which one yet-you know how it, is but as I have log books for both it could be either!

its a series 2, door hinges are series 2, hasnt got a placcy dash, windscreen and hinges for screen are series 2, front grille panel and lights are series 2, only thing that isn't are the wings which were probably added as an alternative to driving lights :lol:

They will have moved the engine mounts to fit the v8, so you'll have to move them back to fit a 200tdi, but otherwise, it looks to be a relatively simple swap, in that its probably easier than most, but still no walk in the park :P

It's a 2a not a 2. They only made series 2 from 1958 - 61, then 2a until 71 and then series 3.

OMG, I've become a rivet counter :o
