Land Rover Series 3 88" SWB 2.25L Petrol 1979 MOT November 2015 84K Classic - For Sale £2750 - Location Luton

Land Rover Series 3 SWB 1979 'Pamela'

I've been considering selling my Land Rover Series 3 for a while now (I'm 18 and struggle to warrant paying the insurance out on two cars when she just doesn't get used enough), and have therefore decided to put her up for sale.

Pamela is a 1979 2.25L Petrol engined SWB Series 3, in fairly tidy condition for her age the only two major issues with her is the A pillars could do with being replaced (this would breath a new lease of life into her, but I don't feel I could do this task justice - so will leave it for the new owner) and the rear door inner frame needs to be replaced or a new rear door fitted. 

She has MOT until November and is currently Taxed etc (on the road and in use - just not regular enough). Around 84,000 miles on the clock which is fairly accurate as far as I can see. The previous owner had her for 11 years and put very few miles on her - I've have the MOTs for their ownership but nothing beyond that point. 

All four wheels will be cream before the sale - and the spare wheel for the bonnet which I've had off recently is also in good condition and cream. I have an aftermarket clamp which I used to hold this in place - seems to do the job perfectly well. Also just waiting for an electronic ignition kit to be sent and this will be fitted before the sale is completed - fed up of messing about with points and a condenser! 

Selectro freewheeling hubs and Fairey Overdrive fitted, works perfectly well as far as I can notice. 

Would need offers around £2750 to part with her really, but I understand she still needs work to be perfect - however this is a 36 year old Farm Utility vehicle though so do bear that in mind.
