I am selling my restored SWB Landy as another project is waiting in the wings and I need space in my garage! I would like it to go to a good home and a nice warm & dry garage. 4 Cylinder Petrol 2.25 litre Registered May 1978 (goes tax exempt and MOT exempt shortly) The car is showing 66000 miles on odometer Lots of history including the original service to come with the Landy. The engine and gearbox are original to the car. folder & book stamped to 27130 miles in 1982 I have consecutive Mot certificates from 1982 to 2009 proving the current mileage. Car was then off the road until restoration in 2016. Great history Fully restored and has been used lightly since 2016. Dry stored in my warm garage.
