Land Rover® Series 3 *URBAN CRAWLER EDITION* (SDY)


For sale, Land Rover® Series 3 Ragtop in Arles Blue (1973).

Tax Exempt. 200TDI. 12 Months MOT will be supplied upon sale, although MOT Exemption will apply after this point. This vehicle is one of the John Brown 4x4 Special Edition Range, prepared by our in-house team.

Here we have an extremely smart and bespoke Series 3 soft-top Land Rover®, fitted with the acclaimed 200TDI engine. This vehicle has been prepared to not only look good, but to perform to the highest standards also.

Externally, the bodywork has been prepared in stunning Arles Blue, with black detailing. This includes flared arches, modular wheels and tyres and brand new black canvas with side windows. A swing-away wheel carrier gives that retro feel whilst being practical, and a tow bar and electrics is fitted too. All the cappings on this vehicle have been replaced with new Galvanised replacement items, giving a 'sharp' look. 

Inside, the vehicle is colour coded to match the exterior with two front deluxe high-back seats with headrests, and centre cubby-box with drinks holder. To complement this, the interior is fully, bespoke carpeted and deluxe matting on top finishes the interior look. This provides a luxury feel to the driving experience, and the smaller steering wheel gives more room for the driver. 

Perhaps the greatest forte of this vehicle is the driving experience - the mechanical setup has been modified to give unrivalled performance and economy. The 200TDI engine pulls this vehicle along with superb performance, coupled with the larger tyres and Range Rover Differentials which are fitted - this gives long in-gear acceleration and a more relaxed cruising experience over standard, with less cabin noise. In our opinion, this gives the vehicle a performance that could perhaps outweigh a modern 90 Land Rover®. 

In summary, this vehicle is capable of superb acceleration and top speed (over standard), relaxed cruising, and more modern driving performance. The combination of high performance and fuel economy, tax exemption and forthcoming MOT exemption (alongside the exterior and soft-top) make this a highly desirable vehicle and a sound investment for the future. 

If you are looking for a one-off, cool Series 3 that performs like a modern 90 then this could be for you.
