1981 Land Rover Series 3 88" Hardtop

On offer is a genuine example of a Land Rover Series 3 88".

First Registered 4th September 1981 this genuine example of a Series 3 has been mechanically overhauled / preserved by Roskruge Restorations 2 years ago and has covered only a couple of hundred miles since. Roskruge restorations is a well known restorer of vintage Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Rolls Royce and Lagonda motor cars.

To find an unmolested example is becoming rare, but to find one that is in such good original condition with most original panels, engine, gearbox and interior is becoming difficult to find.

The interior still retains the original style front seats, and dashboard. It was not intended to fully restore the vehicle but to merely overhaul / preserve the mechanical components ,the body and chassis. The vehicle has also benefitted from some sympathetic paintwork.


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

The vehicle will be supplied with a full 12-month MOT. 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 new oils to engine, main gearbox, transfer box, diffs and swivels.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 matching and in new condition.


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


This is a very honest 38-year-old Series Land Rover. You will have to go a long way to find a better vehicle.
