Land Rover Series 3 III 1977 88" Post Office Telephones, BT For Sale
This really is a rare and unusual Genuine Station Wagon Land Rover.
Very sad sale from my private collection but something must go!
Sold new to Post Office Telephones on 1st June 1977 and was Golden Yellow from the factory.
Up to date V5 registered in my name and Historic tax band.
TAX and MOT exempt
Comes with a history file and a certificate from Gaydon showing supplied to the Post Office etc.
Lots of old MOTs as well.
RPG 840R was registered in Guildford and used from the Guildford depot.
It was later updated to British Telecom logos as per last photo of it in service.
Chassis number 92134378A makes this a Home Market RHD 88" Station Wagon which was the spec that they always chose for the short wheel base Land Rovers.
Would have had a tall bollard capstan winch on the front which was removed years ago but would be fun to find another to put it back.
Seems to have led a sheltered life after the Post Office as mostly they were repainted when sold off in Bronze green but this one escaped!
Showing only 22513 miles on the clock I have MOTs going back to 1993 when the mileage was 13,485.
Last on the road in 1997 and barn stored since hence the solid condition.
Currently in soft top guise I do have the original rear door and sides if you want to put it back to the original spec.
I have just spent £1600 on recommissioning work incl new Petrol tank, brakes, fuel pump, new radiator, starter motor, lights, points and condensor and lots more.
The chassis is remarkable in that it still has a lot of the original black paint on it and is very sound.
Original rear crossmember as well in sound condition.
The bulkhead is very sound and original, the passenger footwell has been replaced and the drivers is original needing a small amount of welding.
Drives well and tested in the snow so four wheel drive all working.
This will make an interesting exhibit at shows amongst the rows of Bronze green vehicles.
Ready to use, enjoy for kids/logging dogs, shows and improve over time if you want to.
