Ordered new locks and ignition already, will need a once over on engine as has a little miss fire, brakes need bleeding and clutch pedal comes up and clutch follows a few seconds later. But its a runner... Nothing major body work wise though I dont think. But hey, always time for a surprise or two. 

Oh and she is Bright red inside...

Very nice, my first Land Rover was a 11A got it before I was 17 and ran it for 4 years, they are meant to leak oil, that is how you know there is some in there and it prevents corrosion.

The little bits you are paying for now you have already saved by being tax exempt, you can be MOT exempt also. I dont really agree with MOT exemption and will continue to get mine done.

Land Rovers don't leak oil - they are simply marking their territory.

It must be empty then as its not marking at the moment...

Had a similar for very many happy years.   Sadly no longer mine but still going.

Superb pieces of engineering genius.

I had a 2A, 2 1/4 Diesel for about 12 years, that was over 30 years ago, free wheeling hubs, fairey overdrive, Michelin Range Rover road tyres etc, went all over England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales in it, when it rained it leaked like a sieve, only let me down on a trip once, broke a pushrod in rural Devon!...........Rebuilt the engine due to crank case compression blowing oil through the breather (used to carry a gallon of engine oil in the back Until I sorted it! Lol!) rebuilt the transfer box.....twice!!.........oil leaked from everywhere....but in the end I sold it for more than I paid for it.......great memories, but mixed emotions! Lol!
