Land Rover 1972 Series 3, 2.25 diesel. Just completed this winter project over the last 8 months. Previously it was in a friends garage for roughly 15 years.
I have done the following. All new brake pipes - flex and copper. The Land Rover retains the original chassis which is now solid after minor repairs. The bulkhead is also solid, which has some minor repairs to the foot wells.The main problem areas to the bulkhead are all solid and good. I have the V5 and various receipts and paperwork. The Land Rover is going for its MOT on Monday so will come with full 12 months. I have only ever driven it around my workshop field but it seems to run well, stops and goes in a straight line and the gearbox seems fine.
Engine seems a bit smokey like most series but I think it just needs a good run having stood for the best part of 15 years! As this has just had quite a lot of work done it may require minor things tweaking , I. It s a good clean straight Land Rover that can used for what it is intended for therefore has usual knocks and dents, probably not one for the rivet counters!
