1976 Land Rover Series III 109 Safari Station Wagon LHD Left Hand Drive Diesel 53127km (33204 miles) on the clock. I suspect this is 153127km or 95704miles (2005 MOT shows 48000km so who knows) 2 Owners from new. Free Wheeling Hubs Side Steps Standard Rims with Michelin XPC 7.5R16C tyres 3 fuel tanks.One at the back and one under each front seat. Always garage maintained by Land Rover specialists (3000 worth of bills in last 10 years) I bought this Land Rover in last year from its second owner who had owned it since 2005 , he had bought it from a doctor from the south of France who had owned it from new and used it for occasional trips to Morocco. Hence the long range fuel capacity. Both of them always had it serviced and maintained by a Garage. I bought it because it is by far the most original rust free and straight Series III I've ever come across and I've owned a lot of them over the years.
When I bought it the only faults were that the exterior paint was faded by the sun and the clutch slave cylinder was leaking. Since then I've had it repainted to a high standard and replaced all the cylinders including the masters on both the brakes and the clutch. The Chassis and the bulkhead are in perfect rust free condition and still had for the most part the original factory finish , Its since been cleaned and re finished to keep it protected. The interior is original , including the headlining which is good with no sags.The front seats are OK with only a couple of tears on the seam. The second row seat could do with a new cover. To finish the car nicely a front Delux seat set is around 200 pounds. The padded door cards are good. The front foot wells have never been welded but have traces of glue from the old sound proofing and a tiny bit of surface rust that rubs of with your finger. The rear floors are still shiny paint from the factory with what I think is the factory mats on top. Ive kept it as I found it taking care not to deviate from originality. The body panels are all straight and needed no work before the respray.
It is 40 years old this year and apart from a a few interior cosmetic faults (patina) its probably one of the nicest unrestored ones around. Everything else works as it should engine , gearbox etc.
And yes it does drive like a 1976 Land Rover, I wont lie driving old Land Rovers is an acquired taste. We are also close to Dinard Airport which is served by Ryan Air.
So if you want to come and see it or pick it up its very easy and there's lots of room in it for wine. I can also get it delivered any where at cost.
Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Ps I have an Overdrive and a Capstan winch which can be negotiated separately.
