1965 Land Rover Safari Station Wagon.

Bought this awesome vehicle earlier this year with the intention of fitting it out as a part time camper so I can go fishing up the beach and stay overnight. Unfortunately, I am now heading to Europe for an extended working holiday and won't have the time/money to be able to keep it.

It came with a Holden 202 which I had fully recon'd by an old school mechanic who is meticulous, so it runs a dream and has done less than 5000km since rebuilt.

Still running the standard Landy gearbox and transfer case, which - as per normal Landy's - sounds a little rough but is still going strong and has never let me down.

Also had a kill switch and separate battery isolator installed, put in a heavy duty deep cycle battery and have upgraded the alternator as I had planned to put in a second battery to run lights/fridge etc but didn't get that far.

Old Armstrong winch on the front - I've never used it. Tyres are practically new - 7.50-16LT.

Pictures show I have taken the back seat out, I still have it and it goes with the vehicle. Same for the Safari roof which I removed to replace the spacers, nuts, bolts and give it a lick of paint - but never got round to it. It is in Good condition and will easily bolt back on. I have the spacers, but they are not UV resistant. These can be purchased from any land rover spares shop or Hi-Q Components does a range of UV resistant spacers. EPDM washers will also be required. About $50 for the lot.

Body needs a bit of TLC - but it is over 45 years old and there isn't anything that needs to be fixed immediately - or any time soon if you like the slightly rough look.

Has the old heater which runs off the radiator and there is an additional electric fan in front of the radiator which runs off a switch to help keep it cool on a hot days traveling.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
