LAND ROVER SERIES 3..88"..good straight body, good chassis. Runs and drives well

Sellers Comments - 1981 w reg LAND ROVER SERIES 3. SWB 88" with original 2.25 Diesel engine.

Lovely and straight Land Rover. You really can't find many straight panelled ones anymore. All differing colours of green !
Engine runs well and after initial start up smoke (they all do!), runs very cleanly.

Gearbox working and drives through all gears nicely. 

Brakes work well. Handbrake works well. Clutch works well.

Very good chassis. Very solid. No holes. The only welded plate I can see is on the front dumb iron.
Rear cross member good. Outriggers good.
Door hinges top and bottom are good on both sides.

Bulkhead is good apart from needing one small plate on the passenger side as can be seen in the pictures.
Door tops may need replacing as have lost the felt/rubber that the windows slide in. Having said that the drivers side window still slides open and closed fine. Passenger side window is stiff.

Nice older retrimmed red leather seats in front x3. Look good with no rips.
2 bench seats in back.
All have seat belts fitted front and rear.
