In this instance, both are applicable! I`m available for viewings almost any time, which will be carried out at my home address. Test drives more than welcome.
Rest assured though, this isn`t your usual Series Land Rover. It has just passed it`s MOT first time with no advisory notes at all, which tell you a lot about the quality of the vehicle. I`ll not reveal the reserve, so please don`t ask. Vehicle - Land Rover series 3.
Engine - 200TDi Discovery conversion. Transmission - 4 speed manual. MOT - February 4th 2017. Passed first time with no advisories. Superb S3 with the sought after 200TDi conversion giving you the desirable classic looks with modern day performance and economy.
Finished in Pastel Green, and looking truly fantastic throughout, the photos really do not do this Land Rover justice. Originally started life as a 2286cc 4 cylinder petrol, but has had a 200tdi Discovery engine fitted at some point in it`s recent history. It`s been done very well indeed, and is a credit to whoever did the conversion. It starts first turn of the key without fail, and really does make a huge difference to driving a Series.
To compliment the engine, it has Range Rover gearing fitted, to enable you to get the most out of the increased power and economy. It`s also fitted with parabolic springs to give a slightly smoother ride. Everything else works as it should. No crunching of the gears, and it also doesn`t jump out of any gear either whilst driving or on overrun.The brakes do what they`re supposed to do, as does the steering and clutch and the 4x4 gearing also works without issue. The wheels are is superb cobdition, and are all inc. The spare shod with Michelin XZL 7.50 tyres with good tread remaining. The classic combination of Pastel Green and Limestone really does work well. Please excuse the pictures, as they really don`t do the colour justice at all. Looking around the vehicle, there are barely any imperfections at all. The galvanised cappings have been left as they are to give the desired patina, and not painted silver like so many people seem to do. The chassis and bulkhead are in superb order, including the rear crossmember and outriggers. It`s been treated to underseal rust protector at some point in the past, and it`s clearly done it`s job. This has the deluxe high back seats fitted, which are in good order. There are a couple of nicks in the material, and about 3 inches of loose stitching on the passenger seat base if you look closely. The dashboard is very rare, in the way that it is totally without damage or cracks. Everything works as it should.
In conclusion, you get the best of both worlds here with probably the most iconic colour combination and classic looks along with modern performance and economy.
