Land Rover Series 3, 1973, 88. Owned by me for the last 7 years during which time I have added less than 5000 miles. Originally owned by Somerset Fire Brigade based at Crewkerne from 1973 to 1999. Clutch; 3rd into 4th gear synchro; front seats; cylinder head with unleaded conversion, front hubs with Fairey free wheeling hubs; Weber carburettor overhaul, professional brake overhaul and engine tune up, reconditioned starter motor; second hand radiator and new hoses; new battery; brand new exhaust (last month). Full service in last 2000 miles.
Replaced - interior: new front seats, rear bench seats replaced with second hand forward facing folding seats with lap belts; new seatbelt bar with inertia reel seat belts, acoustic cabin mats. Additions - Rear spare wheel carrier, new bikini hood for summer use. Original rear bench seats included and a set of 16x8 multi-round hole style wheels if you want in silver. The wheels have good AT Dakar tyres fitted on Land Rover Discovery 1 steel wheels.
These have surface corrosion which need some cosmetic attention. The chassis has required just one repair in the last 7 years, probably because it was treated to a 70's rustproofing treatment!Is old but in good serviceable condition. It had a respray before I owned it which is OK except for the overspray over the engine bay. As you can see from the mileage, this Land Rover is not getting the use it deserves, so its time to sell.
I have a boxfile full of receipts and paperwork and editions of the Classic Land Rover magazine which has photos of it in Ypres and Le Touquet as part of the annual Classic Land Rover Charity Run. It has had regular runs and green lane days out but never any serious pay to play action. It has always been under the cover of a Coverzone Stormforce cover which will need replacing before the coming winter.The last photo shows some scraping where I was blinded by the sun when backing into a narrow driveway - damn it! Unexpectedly I need to leave Kent to look after my 90 year old mother who has become unwell and I will not be back in Kent until Sunday afternoon.
