1977 Land Rover Series III SWB

We are delighted to offer this superb driving, hugely reliable Land Rover Series III onto the market for the second time. We sold the Land Rover to the previous owner in London during the summer of 2016 and he has now parted with the vehicle for a British sports car. Prior to 2016, the Landy had one owner in France for five years and it was driven on a regular basis and kept in excellent mechanical order. The French owner bought a LHD VW Microbus from us, drove the Land Rover through Northern France, took a ferry to Portsmouth and then drove over to Dover to meet our driver. The Land Rover was then transported to Yorkshire and the VW made the trip back to France by road reliably. We then prepared the Series III for the last owner, this included re-lining rear brakes, replacing the fuel tank sender unit, sump gasket, front crank oil seal, gear change pin and a full service and MOT. Since selling the car in 2016 it has performed faultlessly and proven totally reliable. Further has included new front wheel cylinders, the brake master cylinder has been stripped and cleaned out and the alternator has been replaced.

Prior to its five years in France, in June 2011 'The Land Rover Centre' in Huddersfield collected the vehicle from Worcestershire and quickly sold the Land Rover. The West Yorkshire 'Landy' specialists carried out a soft top conversion prior to meeting the new owner at Stanstead airport. The Land Rover made the trip to France by road faultlessly and had proven completely reliable, usable and fabulous to own, just as the recent owner has also found.

RME207R is now a very well maintained, nicely used example that is completely on the button and excellent to drive. The engine is strong, sounds superb and runs perfectly. The gearbox is strong, the brakes and handling all correct and in very good order. The bodywork is solid and the chassis exactly the same. Paintwork has aged somewhat and there are signs of general use, just how many Land Rover enthusiasts like it. Importantly there are no rust issues and the paintwork has a lovely patina and presents well. The wheels have been painted Black whilst in France and the hood is still like new. The interior is nicely presented with lovely leather seats, working instruments, clean dashboard and rear compartment. This is a very smartly presented Series III that is ideal for regular, or even every day use.
