1978 Land Rover Series 3 2.6l 6cyl 109” For Sale

Tax and MOT exempt.

Full V5

Recently had lots of work carried out including:

Full engine rebuild by Billcar Precision engineering (done less than 15 miles)
Reconditioned gearbox (again less than 15 miles)
New clutch
New exhaust
New fuel tank and fuel lines
Wheel bearings
New alternator
New ignition coil
New distributor, HT leads and spark plugs.
New bespoke radiator.
Kenlow electric fan with thermostat.
Front end completely re-wired.

This is a great example of a series 3 with a lovely patina look, and a chance to own an increasingly rare model being the straight six.

She runs very smoothly, starts on the first turn and makes a lovely sound as all Land Rover enthusiasts know! The 2. 6’s are renowned for overheating, for peace of mind a brand new custom radiator (identical to the original 2. 6 radiator) and Kenlow electric fan have been fitted and so she now runs cool.

The chassis is original and solid and has been professionally coated with WaxOyl. The bulkhead is also solid, (some light surface corrosion around the window hinges) it has had a thorough inspection whilst the engine was being removed.

Also comes with a set of 5 general grabber tyres on discovery 1 wheels powder coated black. Many spares and parts are also available to be included in this sale, such as a 2. 6 engine, a series 3 gearbox and transfer box and a series 3 truck cab with door tops.
