Land Rover® Series 3 200TDI *Galvanised Chassis and Tax Exempt* (PTF)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 3 in Deep Bronze Green (1973).

MOT Exempt. Tax Exempt. Galvanised Chassis. 200TDi with turbo.

We are pleased to present for sale this high spec Land Rover® Series 3, which we sold some years ago to a local gentleman. In recent years, the vehicle was rebuilt with a Galvanised Chassis and fitted with the highly acclaimed 200TDI engine. When this work was carried out, the Cambelt was also changed. 

The install included an Electric Kenlowe Fan for improved economy, Recent Exhaust, Free Wheeling Hubs, Rocky Mountain Parabolic Springs, Pro Comp Shocks and high ratio diffs. This excellent combination leads to a vehicle which is capable of operating at a far superior level to other Series 3s. The rebuild also involved new Axles, Heavy Duty Steering Bars, Rock Sliders and a professionally calibrated speedometer which means it now reads correctly despite the upgrades. 

On the exterior, the bodywork survives in fairly straight order, as the photographs show. A full set of 750 tyres is fitted to give the vehicle a purposeful stance. There are more nice features too - rear mudflaps, rear grab handles, free wheeling hubs for improved economy and a height adjustable towbar and electrics, which should prove useful. It is also pleasing to note that the galvanised cappings remain totally original. 

The interior is fitted with sound proofing and smart Exmoor Trim High-back seats, with an additional centre cubby box with cup holders. The rear houses a pair of bench seats - a set of sliding rear windows could be fitted for £495 should this be required for a 'station wagon' effect. 

Out on the road, the uprated drivetrain really does make a difference to this Series 3 - the combination of the more powerful but more economical engine, the higher ratio differentials, larger tyres, parabolic springs and pro comps, free wheeling hubs and electric fan - makes for an unrivalled driving experience with speed, economy and comfort at the very best they can be in a Series 3. This is a very spritely vehicle indeed! 

In summary then, this is a high spec Series 3 which is ready to work, or play! The modern engine, drivetrain, suspension and of course galvanised chassis leads to a Series 3 which is comfortable, efficient and very relaxing to drive - whilst standing the test of time. To cap it all off, this vehicle is also exempt from road tax and MOT, affording cheap motoring despite the vintage look.
