Land Rover Series 3 Lightweight 1/2 ton Airportable. General Service (GS) 12v model (1980). A very genuine and original ex-RAF Lightweight.Believed to be genuine 29000 miles as only had 1 private owner for 19 years since leaving service. MOT history indicates that it did less than 1000 miles per year during that time. 2 new 650 x 16 rear tyres fitted April 2015 and fully serviced at the same time. Fitted with'high ratio' rear diff for improved'cruising' ability on the road. Sound deadening kit fitted to under bonnet, door cards, & front floor. Complete'Pioneer Tool Kit' on tailgate. Original Canvas Tilt in good condition with only a couple of small tears (just cleaned and re-proofed with Renovo). Starts on the button and runs really well. 4wd Hi & Lo ratio works fine.
I have the MoD'Merlin' Report that indicates that it entered service on 17/12/1980 and was'Cast' (left service) from RAF Cottesmore - Tri-Nation Tactical Tornado Establishment (TTTE) on 07/04/1995. He was a professional landscape artist who only used it to get off the beaten track to where he needed to paint from and also for military shows.
As you would expect, being a artist, he did a great job of keeping up to the Nato Green paintwork by hand. He also had it serviced annually including changing the oil despite such low annual mileage. I bought it from him in July 2014 and used it to launch a boat on Windermere from a caravan site. Please remember that this is a 30 year old vehicle that drives like an old Land Rover!
