1983 Land Rover Series 3 88” pickup.
V5 and MOT present.
2.25 petrol engine which i believe is original.
Looks like the original chassis which is in very good condition but not perfect. No rust showing but doesn’t mean to say it’s not rotten. There’s under seal in places where some neat welding plates have been installed. Rear cross member feels solid. It’s had new braces under the pickup bed.
Bulk head has some filler showing and a dent near the passenger door however looks very solid.
Again not horrendous at all, was originally a beige/yellow colour and would be very simple to take back to that colour although beware of the filler!
Both doors open and close with reasonable gaps, the top halves have been replaced with new as you can see, some rust is setting into the bottoms but not worth repairing.
The tailgate is solid and opens and shuts without a hammer!
The drivers seat needs replacing or a nice cushion commissioning into place.
To start the engine is very sweet in runs beautifully without and missing, much more of a pleasure to drive than the diesel equivalent. Pulls very well.
The gearbox is good, a bit old fashioned if you like, so a bit of clutch manipulation goes a long way into finding the gear of the moment. Reverse is a little noisy but it runs through all the gears very well and doesn’t jump out of any gear.
I haven’t tried low range or diff lock in fear of never getting it back out - I have no idea if it works, personally I would investigate before impeding your speed!
Brake work lovely including the hand brake.
All the gauges work inc temp, fuel and speedo, I can’t see any leaks, it’s retaining oil and water and not using either.
Temp gauge works which is important in my opinion.
Wipers are the best I’ve ever seen a while and work which is unusual.
It passed the mot last year with two advisories, all over body corrosion but not excessive and a brake pipe covered in grease. Mot expires end of September.
A few quid has been spent on her recently as you will see when viewing, brake pipes, the door tops, leaf springs look good and possibly recently replaced and a few other minor bits.
The price is open to very close offers.
