1972 Series 3 Land Rover V8. I have had this vehicle for 3 years. During this time it has been extensively rebuilt and modified, many of these mods can be seen in the pictures. The foot wells have been replaced and altered to allow access to the plugs on the nearside, the inner arches can also be removed so that ensure better access to the engine. The heater box, and snail blower have been re fabricated together with the radiator which has been recored, an electric fan which can be switched on and off in the cab and silicon pipes incorporated into the system.
The exhaust system from Parkers is new as are the manifold gaskets and studs. I fitted a new steering relay 2 years ago together with replacement track rod ends and replaced all the oils in the column and box.The braking system has been uprated, I fitted a servo from a Defender which is connected to the stage 1 drums at the front which have just had new pipework, pistons and shoes. (Will need adjusting as they are brand new). The front of the vehicle was rewired incorporating a new HT lead fitting directly onto the starter motor and whilst the binnacle was out I also fitted a new speedo cable. New door tops have been fitted and have been wax oiled with new runners and window stays! This Landy has an over drive which does make a difference on long journeys together with Classic Range Rover diffs fitted to give better economy & speed.
The replacement panels were hand painted/treated in numerous coats of rustoleum and should be sound for years to come. The interior has had two Subaru seats in the front and there are two folding seats in the rear.
It doesnt have power steering and after constant negotiation it has to go as my wife wont/cant drive it. I have enjoyed renovating this vehicle and the sound of the V8 is exhilarating!!!! Viewing is welcomed but unfortunately only at weekends due to work commitments and feel free to ask any questions, I will do my best to answer them.
