Land Rover 1972 series 3 turbo diesel. Drives well. Project

Sellers Comments - This land rover is an ideal project for someone who doesn't want too much to make this into a smart, original vehicle. It is in France very near to Dinan in Brittany. You can get there easily by ferry to St Malo, Dieppe, Cherbourg, Caen or by air to Dinard. I am a retired mechanical engineer and bought it with other things from the estate of some people moving back to the UK for health reasons. Its a lovely unspoilt vehicle and was used on the French roads since 2002 and was issued with French MOTs and insurance certificates during that time. I have all the documentation to prove this. I have a certificate of permanent export issued by the UK department of transport dated 28/2/2002 but the vehicle continued to be used on its UK plates and not registered on the French system I can't find proof of being on the road after 30/1/2014, I presume that is when the owner became ill! It drives very well and all major things seem to work OK. I fitted a new battery when I bought it about 1 year ago. I have done nothing to it as I am not an enthusiast but this would be a lovely project for anyone who is. The vehicle is complete, the tires are all good and it comes with a complete set of new, genuine, Land Rover mud flaps and front mats. The pictures show these in the back together with some side window channels and some metal flanges etc that I believe are for back seats or something similar, there are the original mesh guards for the front and rear light clusters. I will be in Dinan for the first week in August so anyone who wants to see it can then, if you fly out with Ryan air I could possible meet you at the airport. That's about all I can tell you. Its all very straight forward. I will only accept payment in cash or by Bank draft
