1972 88" Series III RHD 2.25 Petrol Tropical and Canvas Top

1972 Series III Station Wagon
2.25 Petrol Engine

Location: Virginia Beach, VA

Price: $6000

Original Paint and odometer shows 91150. I have not idea if this has rolled over, but it works as of now.

I have owned and enjoyed this truck for the last 3 years, but have not driven it enough. I am in the military and can't justify moving it with me at my own cost every 2-3 years for the next decade. So it is for sale!


Features:
- parabolics springs
- Old Man Emu shocks
- overdrive
- weber carb installed 3 years ago
- Exhaust is 3 years old
- canvas soft top w/ rear fold down tailgate
- tropical hard top w/ full swing out door
- new window channels on hard top
- new lamp kit all around
- full length galvanized roof rack
- new weatherstripping on hard top alpine windows
- new brake master cylinder 3 years ago
- great power, strong compression, brakes well
- Canister Oil Filter conversion
- Brakes system just serviced
- heater

This truck drives well, I have driven it from Las Vegas to South Carolina to Virginia in the last 3 years.

I'm available most days to show, just require some notice.

NM.. I can see them if i switch to IE Tab. Maybe one of my firefox add-ins are causing the problem.

Truck will move down to GA in a couple weeks. Having the entire rear axle and differential replaced this week. Should be driving without the mystery rubbing that has been there for the 3 years I've owned it. Price the same, but firm now.

Rover now in GA

Bump to the top.

The Series III is now in the Atlanta area (Peachtree City). I just drove it from VA for 12+ hours. Recent work on the rear axle (replaced) has it driving really nice.

Price is still $6000.

You now living in PTC? I live very nearby in Fairburn. The local LR club is having a rally sept 16. Might be a good place to show it off. Pm or email or whatever if you want more info. Hope to see your truck rolling around PTC.

Ptc

The truck may do a limited amount of cruising around PTC with my dad driving. I just moved to Nevada in the military, and couldn't justify driving it or having it shipped again, so it is for sale. Or I'll pick it up again when I move back east in a bit....

I'll let the guys in the club know it's for sale in case someone there is looking for a local truck. Good luck be safe.
