LAND ROVER SERIES 3 - 88 INCH - 2.25 Petrol

Unmolested Land Rover series 3 88 inch in solid original condition. This Land Rover is tax free with MOT until December 2017 . It's been converted to lead free petrol with an upgraded cylinder head with hardened valve seats the exhaust system is stainless steel. Also has a Fairey overdrive worth around £500 or £600 and free wheel hubs on the front. The leaf springs have been replaced with elipticals along with new bushes. The engine starts easily, runs well and pulls smoothly, the distributor has been replaced with an electronic so no points to worry about. The chassis is in great condition, it's had a couple of the outriggers replaced and has been treated with waxoyl. The bulkhead is in good condition as are the foot wells. Everything works - lights, indicators washers and wipers. The steering box does not have excessive play and there is no excessive transmission backlash. The doors have had replacement top frames and have been waxoyled inside the lower seems. The load compartment is ply lined and I have some bench seats which will go with the sale. There are also a couple of boxes of spares - gaskets, distributor etc. If you want a good solid usable series Land Rover or a solid base for what could be a really nice restoration then this is a good one.
