Land Rover 1980, SWB ( 88'') Diesel, Series 3, Very good cond. MOT april 2016

It is a 35 year old diesel (5 years to go for free tax) and as far as I can tell it is the original Perkins engine.

comparatively rare.  This vehicle is in good condition for age bodywork is very straight. (see Land Rover Owner International, Dec' 2013 issue - "buying a Series 3", which uses this type as an example).
The MOT runs until April 2016.
The chassis has had a lot of work carried out on it prior to my purchase and looks very good and is complete with new, shocks, rear cross member and also has a tow hook.  Any steel to aluminium contact has been gasketed to prevent metal on metal reaction.  The bulkhead has been fully repaired, as have the seat boxes and foot wells.  The brakes have been replaced when the chassis work was done.  It has also had new lights.
I have replaced the driver's door complete and the passenger door top for new including glazing, which enhances the integrity. Forward gears work fine in two wheel drive, four wheel drive high and low ratio.  The previous owner tells me there is also a new clutch fitted but I haven't attempted to verify that.  It starts as it should and does not run smokey.
As with any old Landy, there are a few 'isms!.
