Land Rover ® Series 3 *Galvanised Chassis 200 DI* (KLX)


For sale, Land Rover ® Series 3 in Marine Blue (1971)

MOT until 15th January 2020, but exempt anyway. Tax exempt. 200 DI. Rebuilt onto a galvanised chassis. Previously sold by us so we know this vehicle to be reliable in ownership.

Here for sale we have a very tidy ragtop Series 3, rebuilt in recent years onto a new galvanised chassis. Being a 1971 model it enjoys tax exemption, and MOT exemption too.

Externally there are vintage number plates, lamp guards, defender mirrors for better visibility, a recent canvas, early "razor" bonnet, a towbar with electrics, a full recent set of tyres and a pair of mudflaps. As the pictures show, we think this is a good looking vehicle that stands well on its larger 750 tyres......These tyres all serve to improve gearing ratios and give the effect of an overdrive, needed on these 200DI engines!

The interior is nicely appointed with deluxe seating and cubby box, deluxe matting and a  seat belt bar with inertia reel belts (nice to have). Even the rear is fitted out with a smart pair of bench seats, so the whole family can be transported if required.

The engine conversion is very neatly done, and was fitted professionally, so the under bonnet experience is just as pleasing as the rest of the vehicle. A switched kenlowe fan keeps things cool.

Out on the road, this Series 3 does not disappoint....."Chad", one of our experienced mechanics described it as "rapid!" These conversions are great fun to drive, and make a huge difference over standard - more reliable, better power, better fuel economy etc etc. This vehicle is therefore better suited to motorways than a standard S3.

In summary, this is a high spec soft top vehicle - enjoying many features - exemption from road tax and MOT, soft top for summer fun AND winter driving - whilst still being a great  looking and very solid vehicle!
