land rover series 3 Armored SAS mod met police vehicles London riots rare | eBay

View Details : Great School Run Landy!!

Hi thanks for looking this auction is for a 1979 series 3 land rover and where do we start. 

This is just one of 2 made it was made on the 2nd of march 1979 then left land rover to go to Alvis coventry to be armour plated with one more Land Rover AYL256T  then was dispatched to the met police at Northolt / Heathrow and in its time with the met was used in the Iranian embassy siege London on the 30 April 1980 here you can see it on youtube have put the link for you @ about 5:08 mins 
and the London poll tax riots then after in 1990 both was sold to west Yorkshire police and resprayed in blue till about 1995 then went to the 255 regiment and was painted unmarked army green then to 256 regiment and when a Refit/spray was done back to white as used for Firearms till 2001 and was in the tv drama Juliet Bravo

The land Rover is a 109 LWB 2 1/4 petrol with a Hubbard air con unit and 40178 miles has no tax or mot ideal project is a sound landy there is some welding to be done as all land rovers need but looks like just on the outriggers the bulkhead looks all sound it has had hand paining on the out side and has not been done that well would just look great with a new paint job. I always say please come and have a look
before you bid you can have as much time as you like so your happy with what your getting as there is no mot or tax will have to be trailed away or by
transporter and could be arranged. 

The engine starts and runs and sounds great and the landy drives and changes gears as it should do. The armour plating is just something else and this is a rare land rover.
