Land Rover Series 3 - Lightweight - 1980

Made in 1980 but not registered by the MOD until 1983.

Owned by me for 20 years. It is time to sell by beloved lightweight as I just can’t stand to watch it not being used year after year. When I did use her it was only for the odd shooting weekend. No serious off roading.  Comes with 11 months MOT.
The land Rover has been modified over the years.
3.5 litre v8 early range rover engine. Fitted before the last owner approximately 23 years ago
Salisbury rear axle
Range rover diff in armoured front axle
Free wheeling hubs on front axle
Overdrive so 5th gear
Roll bar correctly mounted to the chassis.
Two front seats (high backed) with 3 point harnesses
Cubby box in between front seats with space for stereo
Warn M6000 winch
Aluminium chequered plate in rear tub
General SAG’s on eight spoke steel wheels with unused spare
Tool vault in rear tub for secure storage
Electronic ignition
Twin SU carbs with K&N air filters
New oil and filter
New water and coolant after flush
All oils checked and changed
7inch chrome spotlights
Steering bash guard
NATO hooks to front and rear

In general good condition, she could do with a new soft top but still water tight, needs a passengers door top as it’s a little rusty by the window channel. The winch only pulls in and freewheels out, don’t know why. Fuel gauge has stopped working.

Please understand this is not a modern 4wd, this is a no nonsense truck with not a hint of carpet in sight. Hose out chequer plate floor and vinyl seats. Built tough to last. No welding or rust on chassis or footwells.
