First registered in December 1972 this 88-inch 4 cylinder petrol Series 3 Land Rover has more history than the British Museum.
Superb Restoration by a British expat living in France, who ran out of enthusiasm and patience for his ex-wife or the car , and brought the car to the UK. We don’t know what happened to the ex-wife.
This classic is registered as historic vehicle and has been the subject of a chassis up restoration, an engine rebuild [ with new components], a gearbox rebuild [with new components ], a full front and rear axle rebuild [with new components] a transfer case rebuild [with new components ], In fact everything conceivable is new components. The history file contains detailed annotations and a photographic record of everything concerning the restoration. All matching numbers. No corrosion. New interior. Brand new hood stick set in galvanised, as well as lots of other components. Free Wheeling hubs and, here is the bonus: Fairey Overdrive. remarkably simple project to complete. All the grunt work is done. We estimate that this project could be completed in about 27 mugs of Yorkshire tea, no loss of 10 mil spanner, and well before the end of lockdown 3 or Brexit, provided your spouse does not insist you watch celebrity Come Dancing.
V5 present. Clear title. Engine runs exquisitely [ that means very well]. gearbox and clutch are perfect.
