Land Rover 88 Petrol SWB Station Wagon Series 3 III 1982 Marine Blue. This is one of the best driving Landies I have driven. It Is markedly better than most. It can do full motorway speed of up to 70mph. As it has the original late model petrol 2286cc 5 bearing engine with much greatly power and much improved fuel economy over earlier engines.
As the car does not need an overdrive so you won't have to endure the high pitched scream they make! It does have Free Wheeling hubs. There is a genuine reason for a reluctant sale.MOT's BACK TO 21/3/1995. New MOT'd to June 2020 no advisories. The mileage shown in the photo is genuine.

The engine is remarkably clean and free from oil and grease.It has the original late model petrol 2286cc 5 bearing engine so expect up to 25 mpg. The engine runs incredibly quitely and when its idling you have to listen to hear it. I often wonder if it is stalled it is so quite! It is a delight to drive at speed as its not noisy like most Landies! The car is totally rust free having had both the front and rear quarter chassis sections replaced with new. Note the inside of the Bonnet has also been repainted to match the exterior and interior colour.
A well found car with sound chassis and bulkhead, with good solid mechanicals and superb engine. Even the trip meter and odometer work correctly! It must be a first for a series land rover these days. Of course I replaced most of them with new bits! This car is a delight to drive.
I think it is the best driving Series land Rover I have ever refurbished. Why not come along and rest drive it if you are serious about a real quality restoration.
