Land Rover ® Series 3 *Galvanised Chassis Station Wagon* (OJR)


For sale, Land Rover ® Series 3 Station Wagon in Limestone (1981). 

MOT until 6th August 2019.     Petrol 2286cc.   Overdrive.     Galvanised Chassis.     Free Wheeling Hubs.    Parabolic Springs.    Genuine County Station Wagon.    Just 4 keepers from new. 

We are delighted to present for sale this striking Series 3 88", genuine County Station. It is a very high spec machine, having been rebuilt on a galvanised chassis in recent years. Also fitted are parabolic springs along with pro comp shocks, an overdrive and  free wheeling hubs. This gives the best possible ride quality, cruising ability at higher speeds and fuel economy.

Being a genuine station wagon gives lots of extra features - the interior enjoys all those trappings - deluxe interior with headlining with roof vents in tropical roof, sun visors, alpine lights,  deluxe wall coverings, fully carpeted interior with deluxe matting, door cards, deluxe seats to the front (originals in good condition so is that circa 77,000 miles correct?) and a full original set of rear folding seats. The original interior light also works as it should on the correct switch - and the interior preservation is something we rarely see.

Externally, as the photos show, this vehicle has survived in really great condition - the paintwork is nice and smooth and the bodywork has managed to avoid so many of the bumps and scrapes we normally find on a vehicle of that age. The galvanised chassis is a great addition, and although fitted in times past, is still in unwelded condition and sound order. As a station wagon, there are a pair of handy rear reversing lights, aiding the reversing process.

Out on the road, station wagons win the race - they are much quieter and more refined than a standard vehicle, and can transport a family of seven in comparative comfort. The addition of an overdrive with free wheeling hubs afford more comfortable, relaxed cruising, thus making the whole experience more pleasant. The tyres are also slightly larger, being 750s and this also gives extra weight to the gearing ratios - it really is a smooth, refined drive (for a series 3, remember!)

The sales pack includes a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, listing the build date as 8.1.1981, the colour as limestone, and the model as a Station Wagon, so it's pleasing to note that it still survives in original configuration!

Finding genuine station wagons is not easy - finding them in this condition is extremely difficult - add to that the superb specification, rarity, and colour scheme and this stacks up to be a fabulous truck - and surely a sound investment whilst being a fun, additional family member!
