Land-Rover Series III Long wheelbase GS (or General Service) Two-door Soft top. (Hard tops are in stock for anyone wanting this) Has original tailgate (without the characteristic dent in the centre rib). All sheet metal bodywork has been soda blasted to white metal inside and out, hen fully resprayed in factory Deep Bronze Green single stage acrylic enamel and garaged ever since. The awesome 5-main-bearing 4-cylinder engine is in exceptionally fine condition. (One of the smoothest and quietest engines we've ever heard) Excellent drive line. Very straight body work. Virtually new all cotton "Sand" , anvas top (with all solid brass fittings) which has always been garaged, xcept for shows, ince new, nd is in excellent condition, ith good, lear vinyl windows. Twin Defender factory boomerang door mirrors. Good factory seats. (Currently offered as received, ith front seats, ut with a full compliment of optional seats this truck can carry ten.) The five virtually-new B.F. Goodrich radial Mud Terrain T/A tyres are 33x 8.50 inches tall and have just been mounted and balanced on freshly sandblasted and painted rims. Tread depth is virtually new on all four tyres on the ground and the spare, pecially sized for bonnet mounting, as never touched the ground. All tyres were purchased and fitted simultaneously. These tyres, y the way, ave raised the truck approximately 2" , aking it the tallest truck in our inventory. Perfect electricals throughout. Starts right on the button every time. Professional restoration completed in 2013 by the winner of approximately 60 international prizes. 76,275 miles showing and credible in our professional opinion. This vehicle is ¾-ton specification and full heavy-duty military spec throughout. Military oil cooler. Twin fuel tanks. Military instrumentation. Military twin-fan-belt system with eight-bladed tropical fan and military oil cooler. Fitted with Salisbury rear axle (for you Americans, his is the approximate equivalent of a Dana 60) and heavy-duty military spec front axles as well. Also fitted with the original Lucas military-spec lamps. Heavy-duty rear springs and raised shackles all around. Every piece of "galv" has been removed, ot dipped in molten zinc and professionally refitted. This is an ex-FFR, r "Fitted for radio" vehicle and as such, s 24 volt throughout. It is also right-hand drive and is a brilliant driving machine. Similar to many of the Land-Rovers restored by Dare Britannia, td., his is an exceptional machine and would easily find its place in the top 5 percentile points of all early Land-Rovers in North America. Nice, ight steering and the doors close nicely with a lovely thunk. Correctly and legally imported for the U.S. market.Serious offers welcome.
