Land Rover® Series 3 *Galvanised Chassis Ragtop* (VNG)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 3 in Marine Blue (1981).

Petrol 2286cc. Long MOT until 9th September 2020. Galvanised Chassis. Overdrive. Free Wheeling Hubs. 750 Tyres. Unleaded head conversion. 

We are delighted to present for sale this rebuilt Series 3, in popular soft top configuration. 

On the outside, there are lots of period features - the bonnet mounted spare, front lamp-guards, rear lifting handles and a recent canvas to give a fresh look. There are also some useful upgrades, such as the defender mirrors to aid visibility and a towball and electrics to allow towing. 750 tyres are fitted to give additional gearing and a butch stance. The paintwork is of a good standard, and is clearly a spray gloss finish rather than a brushed type.

On the inside, there are three recent standard front seats, with deluxe matting to the footwells. In the rear, twin benches are fitted to allow seating for seven along with a load mat to protect the rear floor. 

Out on the road, this Series 3 is a joy to drive - the unleaded head conversion has lead to an eager driving experience - it really wants to accelerate, and with the 750 tyres and overdrive, it can really exploit the power to sit at normal road speeds comfortably. The free wheeling hubs aid the economy, and the reduced RPM's further aid your wallet at the pumps! 

In summary then, if you are looking for a rebuilt Series 3 that looks the part, but is more capable of the modern driving experience, then this could be for you. With upcoming MOT and tax exemption, classic insurance and the ability to carry the whole family, it should prove a strong investment in the long term.
