But you'll see far more LRs being used in this country by off-roaders and farmers, so that suggests they're the better vehicle 'overall' for British conditions.


That's an opinion but is it down to
Cost of vehicle?
Follow the heard?
Old ways as in do as grandad did sort of thing?
Cost of modified parts?
Cost of parts in general?

Cost of vehicle - similar. Defenders can fetch high prices but Discos are cheap.

Follow the herd - why not? There are plenty of LR specialists, and people actually like them.

Old ways - coil-sprung LR versus leaf-sprung Shogun / Pajero?

Cost of modified parts - similar, frankly ludicrous, but you don't have to fit all the toys

Cost of parts - aftermarket prices are similar, e.g. front discs & pads kit for a Disco I or Shogun is £35. Can't imagine OE spares will be cheaper for a Jap vehicle though.

point one and two I guess you are on to something.

 

old ways I am not sure what shogun you are on about but even back in 84 they had coils back and torsion front,  the old ways I actually ment was farmers as the landie was the first proper 4x4 so in farmers talk    its aye been which is why they stick to them.

 

cost of parts well LR lift kit Under 2 hunna landcruiser over 600,  LR winch bumper 1 and a half landcruiser 6 plus, snorkel 100 LR 3 for jap and as for delivery time LR on the shelf jap 4 plus weeks and I waited nearly 10 for some parts.

 

cost of parts is also why people go landie ie back axle 50 to 150 landcruiser 400 to 500 LR engine 2 hunna Toyota 1000 plus.

 

 

I would love to keep this landie as its pretty nice old thing but I really cant be arsed to weld up another old chassis   if anyone wants to do it for cash I would keep it.

 

 

 

I fear you may have missed my point that I was trying to make  you said 

 so that suggests they're the better vehicle 'overall'

 

 my points where to try and show why they get chosen not because they are better.

I thought that if you receive a payment through papal that the buyer can claim it back through the chargeback system.

 

 

Not with vehicles, Paypal don't refund for them but they can 9and almost certainly will) freeze the money for a long time. In fact, they probably will anyway as I discovered in the (not very) infamous Cavette Vs Icelandic twat Vs Paypal. The latter assumed because the car was sold to someone overseas, that I was money laundering.

Re. the leaf springs, I found prices online for Shogun / Pajero leaf springs... dunno what age vehicle they related to though.

 

Yeah, LR is a bit of a default choice really. I honestly don't know whether they're 'better' than Jap stuff... they've all got their plus & minus points as I said earlier. But I'm not a LR purist, the reason I've got mine is because there's a lot of knowledge in my circle of mates as to how to mend them when they go wrong :-)

 

Sounds like some hefty prices for Jap spares though...! Hopefully they're not needed too often.

Sounds like a ball ache. I'd want the money in paypal then in my hand and a concrete set of plans for pickup including contact numbers at his shipping company else I'd tell him to jog on.

 

The complexity and things to go wrong compared to say, someone turning up with money and driving it away massively outway any negative feedback or grief.

Do we ever learn when buying vehicles?

 

It appears I have bought another toy over the phone without first viewing so thought I better collect it asap,

I got the misses to take me to collect it and it was late so once she dropped me of I sent her home, that was the first mistake :shock:

The seller  and I swapped paper and we chatted for a while then the damn thing wouldn't start :-(  maybe I should have tested it out before parting with the coin or sending the misses home oopsie.  

 

After a wait for a mate to come we tried to jump start it, after fafing around for half an hour we decided to tow it backward out his drive and bump start it to spare the neighbours any more noise us simpletons where making.

 

Anyway to the pics if anyone's interested that is.

 

Lets off road :-D

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00961.jpg

more replaced items add much needed comfort over standard seats. 

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00967.jpg

After recent tdi engine in the rover I am not actually sure what engine this is :-D

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00959.jpg

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00964.jpg

plenty new shiny bits included for much off road fun.

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00969.jpg

Look at this the seller has even included some rubbish as a sweetener :shock:

The Scottish Borders-20150117-00968.jpg

 

So to sum up the landy is draughty, cold, noisy, half the gauges don't work that's when you can see them, and it wanders about like an old drunken tramp.

 

Just need to remove or hide some checker plate now and find a roof as I am not a fan of the 90 pickups.

Time 4.28 take boots off put trainers on grab handfuls of money and beat feet,
Damn drat and bollocks the misses never fills the damn truck so will have to pit and I'm on a tight timescale as well as the seller wants to go home,
IMG_20160212_163055727.jpg
Due to rushing like a tit I didn't take any pics but on the bright side I managed to get to the guys shop before he skedaddled away hame.
After some folded paper changed hands it was time to load up, here is the best i can do as its bloody dark.
IMG_20160212_181607404.jpg
I strapped her down in the dark wet drizzle threw the five spares wheels in the back of the hippo and i was ready to head back to a warm house in record time,
The sat nav decided to sent me back home the scenic route and all was going well until this sign confused the hell out of it.
IMG_20160212_182634239.jpg
We trundled along little winding roads which the trailer filled, thank fook i never met anyone coming the other way. if you look to the right of this picture you can see the Georgian house that the great colonel boggie stayed on his whistle stop tour of the borders, on the left is a huge lake stuffed full of fishies and other delicious edibles.
IMG_20160212_182554350.jpg
By the time i got to this sign the sat nav had a complete melt down and hid in the corner in the huff.
IMG_20160212_182846421.jpg
never mind at least the red eyes where still in tow and hadn't decided to run for the hills.
IMG_20160212_182854909.jpg
woo hoo nearly home thank fook.
IMG_20160212_183309464.jpg

I dont know if any of you remember this from an old spot but when i spotted this and another i popped a note through the workshop door, this was well over a year ago now and the call came out of the blue asking if i wanted to buy it, he didn't need to ask me twice that's for sure.

While the other half is In some shit shop in the metro centre I thought I would pop up a PIC or two.
IMG_20160213_103748463_HDR.jpg
IMG_20160213_103802945_HDR.jpg
As you can see I was pleasantly surprised as it looks nowt like it did when I last posted its pics,
I shall have to find a proper back door I think as its got a barn door style thingy going on.
IMG_20160213_103732271_HDR.jpg
The back is full of spares too so an added bonus.
IMG_20160213_103851859.jpg IMG_20160213_103844849.jpg
And under here has changed since last looked at too,
It has not got the turbo fitted but I did notice it was in the back.
IMG_20160213_104214168.jpg
It's had quite a bit of a refresh inside too,
IMG_20160213_104131426_HDR.jpg
And as an added bonus it also came with these,

Hey, that looks really smart.. is it as good underneath?  I think the 200tdi without the 't' is a common series conversion- I'd rather squeeze the blower in there though :D

I think the rear door conversion is quite desirable now?  We have an ex-mil 2A with it.

The chassis looks pretty decent and looks to have had some welding done,

it looks like all four shocks are also new but I'm not sure I like the quick release method of holding them on with split pins. is that a normal feature ?
IMG_20160214_112017463.jpg
The bottom of the back panel is a bit frilly and has been painted over, better than the usual tread plate I suppose, the only paint issues are this door but I'm sure I could touch that in.
IMG_20160214_112041685.jpg IMG_20160214_112052316.jpg
This zaust made me laugh and explains why the back wheel is a different colour to the rest.
IMG_20160214_111806363_HDR.jpg

Now ive been over it I'm not sure what to actually do with it, I have two tow vehicles, two of road 4bee4s so this is just one of those impulse buys that will be parked up in the corner.

And here we are coming up for three years later and look whats still here doing nowt, yup the impulse buy.
15432364083308565663262317824651.jpg

And just to make matters worse I apear to have bought yet another one, now I'm usually jap orientated and swerve landies but I seem to attract them,

20180807_192008.jpg

The patrol is actually for sale now to help fund a garage.
Just a quick check over first then it sailed it's not.

20180729_123240.jpg

And after fresh mot it was washed sort of then ready for sale.

20181014_163504.jpg

Now I'm sort of wondering what to do with the series now as I've never even driven it on a road yet which quite frankly is a bloody disgrace.
The v5 states PLG and tax is £225 or so so how do I get it changed to historic ?

Go into a post office that does tax and ask to tax it as Historic (also MOT exempt now). They will change the tax class, issue the tax and keep/send off the logbook which will come back to you as historic and all FOC

Well I've owned this landie for a little over 3 years now and just last month I finally did 30 miles in it so that's averaging 10 miles a year then,

 

I really should just pass it on to someone who would actually improve it and use it so come on chaps what's it worth.

 

It has the 200 tdi minus the turbo under the hood and I have fitted new brake  and clutch master cylinders and changed the solid bar throttle set up to cable, 

the landie used to be a petrol so needs a set of parabolic springs fitted or removal of a couple of leaves out of the springs, she tends to stot a bit,

the landie doesn't have an overdrive and it sounds like its revving a bit high whilst driving along, not sure on what speed I was actually doing as it was dark both times I drove it and the dash lights don't work either.

 

so anyone want a road legal series landie before I plop it up for sale.

I found this one hasn't ate much money in the last three years as only done 30 miles haha

as for price i really have no idea to be honest,  I cant even remember what I paid for it either,  2k ?  or is that a bit rich ?

You'll have your arm chewed off at £2k. Get a Mot and stick it up for £4k and that is probably cheap if it has a good chassis and bulkhead. Prices for Series Land Rovers are a bit mad these days.

Its tax and mot exempt and is actually on the road I just don't use it.  in my eyes its not a 4k landie,  I shall take some fresh pictures the moorn and add them here.

I appreciate that Car and Classic can have some steep prices, but you will not find a Series 3 for under £3.5K:

 

Land Rover Series 3 For Sale - Car and Classic

 

A MoT resassures buyers it is road worthy. What's the price of one over in GB these days? About £50-ish? I would imagine that would be recouped in spades, but it depends if you want the hassle. Yours looks quite tidy from the photos.
