The "Buy it now" I have in mind is £3.5k, as the range of prices for IIB FC's seems to range from £2k for a useless pile of bits through to £8-10k for a really tidy clean fresh MOT'd one, with MOT'd tatty ones at £5-6k and un-MOT'd but driveable ones at £4-ish-k. This has an Overdrive fitted, which is well over £500 worth these days (quite how that ever happened is beyond me) and so £3.5k seems about right.

Shiters discount applies, and the first person with £3k can have it.

(I haven't a clue how a pile of old shite like this ever became worth more than a grand, but I've got bills to pay and I'm *never* going to get around to restoring it, so here it is.)

11/10 for the ad wording/flow....

If I wanted this (or considering one) then the 'spec sheet' you have ticked here would make me think "I need to offer this man money... Simples!"

Tyrekickers give this a swerve...

Thanks. I wasn't sure if I had started rambling on or not, so have added a couple more bits of info at the end, as I realised I'd missed them from the wording.

I have been considering selling this for months and months now, but thought selling it in the middle of winter probably wasn't such a wise plan. With better weather, people (myself included) have more time and energy for a restoration.

It used to look a fair bit tidier...:

Wow, that brings back memories! I bought one of these about 25 years ago to restore, 5 years later I sold it at a loss to someone else to restore as I had not touched it. The buyer died before starting it and I have no idea what happened to it.

 

Oh yes, it was called Ornott.

It's a very cool vehicle indeed. I've owned it for nearly 2 decades, and I will undoubtedly regret selling it, but it needs someone who can spend the time and money on it that it needs.

It's also now worth too much money. I don't like owning vehicles that are actually worth money as I'll just constantly worry about it. Better to sell it and buy something worth a lot less.

Especially given how much of a target Land Rovers seem to be for thieves these days.

It's one of the reasons I decided to move my Saab on as well, it was getting to be worth too much to be sitting rotting in a corner.

Shame really, I'd always fancied an SIII. Never going to happen though given the silly money they go for.

Series Land-Rovers aren't even anything that special really. Even compared to contemporary vehicles, they're crude, noisy, slow, fuel-hungry, unreliable and dangerous.

The only plus-points they have are durability, cheap parts and ease of repair. That said, if they were more reliable it wouldn't be necessary for them to be repaired so often and need so many new parts...

Also, the people owning Series Land-Rovers have changed. The number of people I've seen on Facebook LR groups who are genuinely worried and stressed about panel gaps, parts originality, matching paint, minor dents, location of switches, wiring loom colour, etc.etc. is genuinely disturbing. It used to be that a Series Land-Rover driver carried a toolkit comprising of a clubhammer and a welder. Now they seem to carry polishing mops and interior cleaner.

You've already got a perkins 4.203 powered 109 and you want another LR with the same engine?

Masochist.

Don't suppose you want to buy two Perkins 4.238 engines to go in Land-Rovers and make them even more nose-heavy and agricultural?

Bids are coming in nicely I see, hold your nerve and you could get good money for it , Land Rover tax seems to be bumping the prices up plus you're selling with 5 months of good weather fixing up time in front of it

Jetwash if you're posh, hose and yardbrush if not? I don't clean the inside of mine as it upsets the resident spiders, they go on strike and stop eating the resident flies.

Quite.

There was a genuine comment on a FB group for series LR where someone was asking what he could do about the carpets in his series, as one corner would always get a bit damp when he drove in the rain.

Which was bad enough (seriously, carpet in a Series??) but there were responses along the lines of "silicon seal up the floors" and "take it to a specialist who can seal it up properly".

Honestly. If a Series LR has even half the spire bolts holding the floor panels in you're doing remarkably well. Mine were "quick release" for many years.
