Land Rover® Series 3 *Petrol Soft-Top* (XSE)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 3 in Deep Bronze Green (1977). 

MOT until August 31st 2018 with no advisories and will be MOT exempt after this point. Petrol 2286cc. Parabolic Springs. Free Wheeling Hubs. Snorkel. 750 Tyres. 

Here for sale we are delighted to present this smart soft-top series 3, in popular colour configuration. On the outside, the vehicle sits on brand new 750 tyres, which have unrivalled off and on road ability, and also increase the gearing through the larger rolling diameter than standard. A recent canvas and sticks are fitted, along with rock sliders and a snorkel to aid off-road ability - great for the keen off-roader! Free Wheeling Hubs are fitted to increase fuel economy and limit front axle wear. Other than this, the exterior is largely standard, with a matching spare mounted on the bonnet, and a handy step at the rear to make loading easier.

On the inside, the vehicle has a matching pair of recent deluxe highback seats, offering superior safety and comfort than standard, and a middle cubby box which is useful for storage. Deluxe matting is fitted to the front footwells, and a load mat to the rear. Although the rear is unfitted, this could easily house bench seats increasing capacity to four in the rear, allowing for 6 seated including the driver. 

Out on the road, this Series 3 gives a very pleasing driving experience, benefitting from a recent full exhaust system which sounds great. The petrol engine is very quiet and a fit unit, sitting comfortably at speed thanks to the uprated suspension and larger rubber. It gives a pleasing yet enhanced period driving experience. There is a file of receipts for maintenance included with the vehicle which indicates it has had lots of money spent in the last few years, and this can be felt when out on the road.

In summary then, if you are looking for a useable classic, then this could be for you. With a desirable colour combination and mechanical upgrades, it should prove a joy to own and run. With upcoming tax and MOT exemption and classic insurance, it should be cheap to run in the long term, whilst turning heads everywhere it goes!
