Land Rover Series 3 SWB 3.5L V8 Soft Top with MOT - For Sale £2400 ONO

I have decided to sell my 1977 Land Rover Series 3 SWB 3.5L V8 Soft Top in very good condition with SU carbs. The Landy sounds great and does turn heads. My partner and I are expecting our first child in a few months time hence the reason why I'm selling otherwise I wouldn't. I believe it will be road tax exempt in two years. The Landy started off with a 2.25l petrol engine but that got replaced with a V8. The log book still shows 2.25l. It has a new MOT to July 2016. I did do some mechanical work to get it through the MOT. All electrics work (I.e. Lights, indicators, cluster/dash instruments, air horns, wipers, wiper jet spray). It's kept in a garage and is pretty clean and straight for its age with minimal corrosion. Chassis is very solid and been wax oiled. The rear cross member has had a patch welded in the past. The paint work is not too bad and is in black.
2WD and 4WD all work with free wheeling hubs.

- I will also throw in 4x part worn BF Goodrich tyres with good tread.
- Also will include a spare bonnet with wheel holder/carrier.
- Recent cooling system flushed, rad cleaned and clean/new coolant added. No overheating.
The hood is currently off the truck due to the nice weather and that it won't fit in my garage when fitted to the truck. You will need a big van to collect the wheels and other bits.
Landy is ready to drive away but I haven't done any long journeys in it. Longest was 40 miles without issues.
I also balanced the air flow of the SU carbs however they might need a further tuning but it never bothered me and it passed the emissions test for MOT.

For the boring bits now. Please only bid if you have the funds. I require a deposit of £150 to be paid immediately by PayPal once auction ends and the remaining cash on collection. I'm not interested in any part exchanges or swaps. Those with less than 10 positive feedback to contact me prior to bidding or bids will be cancelled.
I would recommend you view prior to bidding so you know what you are getting. You are bidding to buy the vehicle and not view or haggle the price with me upon viewing.
Sold as seen and no returns.
Timewasters will be reported.

The Landy is advertised elsewhere so I may remove the listing of sold.
