Land Rover Series 3 88 Bronze Green 1979 Soft Top GWY 597T For Sale

GWY 597T - Land Rover Series 3 88" Bronze Green 1979 Soft Top Refurbished

First Registered 1st July 1979.

It is in one of our favourite colour combinations Bronze Green with the Limestone Wheels. The previous owner acquired the vehicle in 1998 and so it has been in periods of long term ownership. The vehicle has been subject to a full restoration including a new galvanised chassis.

To find an unmolested example has become very hard, but to find one that retains all of its original panels, its original running gear is becoming very hard.

The bodywork on GWY is very good and all the panels are straight with no major dents or scraps.

The interior still retains the original style Deluxe cloth front seat backs and bases. It was also important to us that we kept as many original parts of the vehicle, as this wasn’t intended to be a fully restoration but a preservation. Door cards can be fitted should the buyer wish but we wanted to show their excellent condition, matching rear bench seats are fitted. The dash is unmarked with no damage. Rear seat belts can be fitted should the buyer wish. The rear load space is very clean and this has never been a working vehicle.

All windows open, all the window channels are good and because the vehicle has been kept under cover not rusted away as so often is the case.

The load area is exceptionally clean and doesn't show any sights of heavy use and is presented with a rubber mat and bench seats.


GWY has one of the best original engine bays we have seen on a Series 3, extremely clean with original stickers still in place. The head has been refurbished and now benefits from harden valves and so you no longer need to worry about putting in lead additive. The block and head have been repainted in the correct colour. Factory fitted inner mud shields unusually still both in place and are intact.

The factory fitted engine busts into life on the turn of the key. It is apparent that this is a vehicle that has been maintained and covered low mileage it runs as quiet and smooth as any Series Land Rover that we have ever had.

A joy to drive and such fun, the vehicle will have a full 12-month MOT from the day of sale. Four wheel drive and low range engage, as they should. The gears change up and down as they should it has a very quiet gearbox which is a good sign of it's light use over the years. The vehicle will be supplied fully serviced including engine, filter, main gearbox, transfer box, diffs and swivels.


Almost all Series Land Rovers we have had drip a little oil, some quite a lot, GWY 597T is the exception though no drips of oil to speak of even after standing for days in the same place. The steering is as it should be and the vehicle doesn't wonder on the road like some series vehicles do. All the tyres are have been replaced and are brand new.



SUMMARY

GWY 597T is an unmolested and well-presented Series 3 Soft top in immaculate original condition. All the numbers match - the chassis numbers on the plates are the same as on the log book registration document and that stamped on the chassis itself.

This is one of the best original untouched Series 3 we have ever had the opportunity to own.

This Land Rover has obviously been cared for and cherished by its previous owners.

It is very solid example that requires no work and is ready to use and enjoy.

If you are an investor you will already know the growing importance of original un-messed with condition for classic cars. If you are an enthusiast then you will not be disappointed with this vehicle.

This is a very honest 39-year-old Series Land Rover. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle.

Anything on this Land Rover that required attention has been done it is now faultless. At £19,995 this shows great value for a vehicle that has been fully rebuilt and is on a galvanised chassis.


Opportunities to purchase a genuine bronze green soft top don't often come up so please don't miss this one.
