For sale through AB4x4s Cleveland is this charming Land Rover series 3 1975 soft top that has been rebuilt in 2016 on a galvanised chassis. It Has an MOT until November and passed all previous MOT’s with no advisories (hardly surprising!). It is however tax and MOT exempt but always nice to know its all up to scratch.
So story goes that the current owner has loved it and owned it for 26 years. In his ownership he has spent a small fortune on it to present it at this high spec. Below is a brief list of parts and work undertaken;
ENGINE- 2.25 diesel. Fully reconditioned 300 miles ago. Reground crankshaft, new bearings, re-bored with new pistons. Cylinder head re-faced and new valve guides fitted. New timing chain. Sits neatly in the engine bay and looks professional.
CHASSIS– Galvanised and only 4 years old so completely maintenance free.
BULKHEAD– Restored in 2016 so still perfect. Front radiator panel was also restored at this time.
GEARBOX– Fully rebuilt and flawless. Fitted with Fairey overdrive for motorway cruising.
RUNNING GEAR– Mostly new to include new road springs, new track rods, prop shaft and wheel bearings.
TYRES– Sits on recent Goodyear Wrangler tyres fitted to restored and painted wheels. Spare is new and unused and can be bonnet mounted or in the rear tub.
BODYWORK– This is typical for a 45 year old Landy so this is for someone who is wanting a vehicle that they can use without the worry of denting scratching it. We can however do a body resto if you are a perfectionist. Please contact Anthony for quotes. Soft top is new and looks great.
TOW BAR– Useful addition to have.
In conclusion, if you are in the market for a completely solid and usable series 3 soft top then this must take consideration. Should prove a good investment and definitely better than the bank!
