1982 Land Rover Series 3 2.25 Diesel SWB Utility For Sale

Magazine Featured Land Rover Series 3 Diesel Available for sale, is this 1982 Land Rover Series 3, 2.25L Diesel, SWB Utility Model. Benefitting from a Toro overdrive, which works well without whining, and Selectro free-wheeling hubs. Overall the vehicle is in very good condition, and the mileage of 62,000 would appear to be genuine. There is some history to go with the vehicle, including a bill or sale from Dunsfold Land Rover in 2004. After being sold by Dunsfold LR in 2004 it was purchased by the previous owner, who used the vehicle around his estate on the outskirts of Bath. As such, the vehicle has seen little heavy over the last decade. As you can see from the photographs, this Land Rover benefits from having original Marine Blue paint all over, owing to a fantastic original looking patina – something that cannot be replicated. The rear tub sides, still show the unpainted rivets on outside – just as it would have left the factory. The bodywork is incredibly straight for a vehicle of this age, let alone a Land Rover. The interior of the vehicle also remains largely original and unmolested, with ‘Delux’ vinyl seats up front and an un-cracked dash board. There are bench seats fitted in the rear of the Land Rover, these could well have been a period upgrade, and appear to be in LR ‘Caviar’ cloth trim. Aftermarket floor mats are fitted to protect the interior from muddy boots. Under the bonnet, the original 2.25L diesel engine starts after 20 seconds of glow plugs, on the first spin and runs extremely well. The hand throttle, fitted as standard to this age diesel Series 3, allows the engine to be ‘warmed up’ before use. Once the engine settles to sensible idle, the start-up smoke clears with only a small amount of smoke under heavy acceleration. The chassis appears in very good order, and has been kept protected for the majority of its life. It currently carries a good coat Waxoyl on the chassis – which shows little evidence of welding. We have access to a vehicle lift, where the underside of the Land Rover can be inspected should the buyer require. The Land Rover drives extremely well for the year, and again this is reflective of the mileage show on the clock, with tight steering, a precise gearbox (one of the very few I have driven with a reverse spring still intact!) and brakes that stop adequately and accurately. The 2.25D engine pulls well, although is a little slow against modern traffic – the overdrive makes the vehicle rather more driveable than most diesel Land Rovers of this age. You may recognise the vehicle from its recent magazine feature in, Land Rover Owners International. Where it was pitted against a 300Tdi Defender. The editor was particularly impressed with the Series 3’s condition. The vehicle will be sold with 12 months MOT, and can be delivered if required – although viewing is always recommended.
