Series Three (3) Lightweight 88" Landrover 1966 Air Portable - TAX EXEMPT £1 Starting bid, No buy it now, Will run to the end

Good bits

Rare early model and tax exempt ( will still need road tax but it is free)

A lot of fun, especially in the summer with the roof off.

V5 certificate in place

The engine was replaced with a great reconditioned one about 6 years ago and this has not done many miles at all with us since. Has always run really well.

Great gear box (well as good as you get with a series Landy!) Has always changed through the gears nicely. High and low ratio work well.

The chassis and wiring loom were replaced about 10 years ago and the chassis is as far as we know completely sound.

The Landrover has a  good roof rack

It has great mud tyres (road legal) that are ideal for handling tough off road conditions.

A relatively easy restoration project compared with many other examples for sale.

Not so good bits

It will not start (although we are confident this is something small)


The clutch pedal needs attention as it is remaining down

Needs new doors 

Paint work/ body work lights need a lot of attention. Has a fair few battle scars.

Speedo has not worked for years but we never needed it!

Rust (as far as we know the chassis is completely sound but there is a fair bit of rust else where.) Luckily a lot of the body work is aluminium and not affected.

Seats need replacing.

No stereo, air con, heater or any other luxuries.
