For sale,through JOHN BROWN 4X4 LTD, Land Rover® Series 3 in Marine Blue (1980)

MOT until 4th July 2020 and is due for MOT exemption under the 40 year rule. Will also be tax exempt in the very near future.

Galvanised Chassis rebuild. 200tdi engine. Free wheeling hubs. Seven seater. Thermostatic Kenlowe fan.

We are delighted to present for sale this high specification Series 3, having benefitted from much improvement over the years.

Externally, as can be seen from the photos, this vehicle is presented in good, straight order with a smart paint finish. The whole feel here is that of a well sorted and period truck - there's a bonnet mounted spare, galvanised front bumper, defender mirrors for better visibility, free wheeling hubs for reduced wear and improved fuel economy, period limestone rims sporting larger 750 tyres for improved gearing, a working rear spot, working rear fog light, towbar, mudflaps and unusual military lamp lenses (which we think look really good!). Sliding rear windows are fitted to give a station wagon set up, so it's capable of moving the whole family around.

The interior is fitted with Land Rover® techno style seats throughout. Deluxe matting is fitted and there are door cards for that little bit of added comfort and sound deadening. The dash houses a few extra switches for the additional lighting, and there's also a hidden immobiliser switch for added security.

The highly acclaimed 200tdi engine is neatly fitted into the engine bay, and the turbo remains in situ - this gives almost twice the economy and power, plus the promise of more modern reliability standards. The test drive proved a very fuss free and pleasant affair. The vehicle drives really well, and inspires the driver to press on. This truck will therefore suit the driver who wishes to perhaps trek further afield than one might normally think to, as it has been put together to give the best driving experience, best power plus best economy possible.

In short, this is a well sorted vehicle - rebuilt onto a galvanised chassis - with gearing, power and reliability upgrades, fuel saving FWH and electric fan etc etc....and as it's almost 40 years old, it stands to be the newest and most modern MOT and tax exempt truck available in due course - an unrivalled combination in our opinion.
