For Sale, Land Rover Series 3 Station Wagon in Masai Red (1983)
12 months MOT will be supplied, and taxed until July 2014. This is a genuine Station Wagon, fitted with all the fineries that they come with….tropical roof with vents, headliner, deluxe interior trim with door cards, deluxe carpeting, techno seats and rear carpet etc etc.
This smart Station Wagon was purchased from Huddersfield Land rover Centre in 1993, and subsequently rebuilt in 1996 for the purchaser, Mr Smith - the work was carried out by Warwick 4X4. The work involved a recon gearbox (the current one stuck in third), a new galvanised chassis, new brake pipes, refurbished front and rear axles, swivels refurbished, new brake drums, flexis, slave cylinder, new fuel tank, sender, replacement of both foot wells, new exhaust manifold and gasket etc etc.
In addition to this professional and documented rebuild in 1996 there are also some very interesting extras fitted. It has a complete “Lasalle” dashboard, which offers superior switching to electrical ancillaries – the switches, as photos show, illuminate when in use – they all have a task and it’s nice to see that they operate in such a robust fashion. There has also been a very cleverly fitted power steering kit, which transforms the drive – even your grandma could drive it (no sexism or ageism intended). Under the bonnet the upgrades continue – an SU carburettor and manifold has been fitted to improve both fuel economy and performance over standard, and this translates to a good turn of speed and lots of torque.
On the outside, the Land Rover sports Free Wheeling Hubs, for further improved economy over standard, a smart rear tow bar (galvanised and height adjustable) with electrics, a rear galvanised step, front towing eyes, front tow bar (great for moving trailers and caravans into difficult spots, chequer plate wing tops and sills, front roof visor, front and rear lamp guards, and rear mounted spare. This truck really is loaded with extras, and looks great for it.
This is a very interesting Series 3 – useable with the Station Wagon configuration, more economical with uprated carb and free wheeling hubs, desirable with galvanised chassis, uprated dash and power steering, and overall a nice, genuine thing.
A rare and smart Land Rover.
