Both vehicles need work to finish. I have loads of photos and will answer any questions openly and honestly.I bought the station wagon about 5 years ago on E-Bay. The chassis with a completely rusty and the original petrol engine was beyond repair. For which I have the receipt. I have the V5 in my name but it is an old green type V5. I also have the chassis plate (VIN) that matched the registration. Before this station wagon legally exists again it will need to be taken for a historical vehicle inspection. I replaced the petrol engine with a period diesel. I wont list everything I did on the engine other than it has been sleeved to original bore and about the only old parts left is a checked cam, a checked and polished crank shaft and the con rods. I have all the station wagon rear seats and mountings as well as all of the original trips used in the Station Wagon. I dont have the front roof lining or insulation. I have everything needed to finish the project to Original Station Wagon spec including the all-important Land Rover and 4 wheel drive station wagon aluminium badges. The paintwork in the photos looks better than it actually is. The green Series 3 is a diesel. It is Y reg for which I have a new red type V5, in my name.
The engine ran well with no signs of oil burning. I would undoubtedly pass an MOT but could probably do with the Diesel pump being timed. I have all the bits that can be seen missing in the photos apart from the small brackets for the throttle and kill mechanism on the diesel pump and the intake hose between the air filter and the intake and lastly the butterfly intake valve and housing. These are now all on the Station Wagon. My plan was to replace the original diesel with a TD300 (yes that can be done but not as easily as fitting a TD200) I have a really good TD300 in my workshop which buyers may wish to make me an offer for.I then planned to put the original diesel (after rebuilding it) into my series 2a 109. Due to unforeseen circumstances I now need to sell all my landrovers and parts. Just think about how much a chassis is and the engine costs and you will roughly know what I want to get back from the sale. Please excuse some of the grammatical errors. Should have read; The vehicle had a completely rusty chassis.
As well as all of the original trims (not'trips') It would undoubtedly pass an MOT not'I would undoubtedly pass an MOT.... My unforeseen circumstances are a recent diagnosis of illness that will limit my ability to finish all my projects. I cocked up my listing. I now realise a reserve price is chargeable.
In essence I just messed this up. Anything over the reserve price I will give to local charity. The chassis on the green 88 will pass an MOT.The rear quarter chassis has been replaced and I replaced the 2 bulkhead out rigger mounts. Just a bit of history. This Land Rover spent about 10 years in southern Spain. I bought it from an Ex Pat when I was working out there. Had loads of run in it. Hence the bulkhead and chassis are in very good condition. Having not been in the rain and damp of the UK for all it's life. Neither the chassis or bulkhead are perfect. But they will not fail an MOT.
Is this Station Wagon genuine. The VIN Number on the log book (V5) and the chassis plate show it as a early series 3 STATION WAGON.This is not a early series 3 with bolted on Station waggon bits.
