Air Transportable Lightweight SIII 24v FFR Landrover 1979

I have owned this FFR lightweight for thirteen years and have maintained it as a toy for summer use. It had one other civilian owner who purchased it via Craddocks when it was decommissioned from the army. I am told it saw service in the first gulf war but this is not confirmed. It is a series 3 model, fitted for radio, with a 24volt electrical system which is very original in almost all respects. A weber carburettor has been fitted which is a worthwhile upgrade. It has had many new parts over the years including the hoop set, tilt and rear seats. The tyres have not done many miles, brakes reconditioned, new fuel pump ( recent ), batteries and exhaust. The fuel tank under the drivers seat is also quite new. The bulkhead floor pans are recent and solid. The chassis is original and has had a replacement rear cross member and one outrigger as well as some welding over the years. The vehicle is missing the top half of the rear door ( easily obtained ) which can be seen in the pictures. The speedo is erratic and the wipers tempremental but should not pose a big problem to fix. I am only selling due to a move to the outer hebrides where a tractor is a more appropriate toy.
