Lightbulb 1974 Series 3 SWB for sale

1974 Series 3, 88 inch hard top, 2.25 petrol engine, left hand drive
Vehicle Serial # (VIN): 25903460B 50,269 miles on odometer

Asking price is $8,000


Selling to concentrate on the frame up rebuild of my Series 2 Land Rover.

I bought this truck last year and have spent time going through fixing minor problems and replacing leaking seals, so that it can be a fun and reliable daily driver. It is on the road and currently plated in Saskatchewan. The Land Rover spent most of its life on a golf course and the frame and bulkhead reflect this and are solid/sound. I had one repair made to the chassis last year (welded area supporting the rear spring hanger), after which the chassis was cleaned, wire brushed, rust proofed and painted. The bodywork is mostly straight and to my knowledge has not been filled. The last owner had fitted in the previous 3 years: a new fuel tank and fuel pump, exhaust, carburettor, distributor/points, Rocky Mountain parabolic springs, shocks, bushings, halogen headlamps, and new brakes all round. He also resprayed some of the bodywork (not the rear door or door tops) in the original Marine Blue colour, and the hardtop in limestone.

Since I have owned the truck I have replaced/renewed:

New deluxe style drivers and passengers seats
Rear brakes, including new copper-nickel lines and hoses.
Rocky Mountain spin on oil filter adapter (will include original canister hardware in case you want to revert to original fitment)
New speedo drive cable
New transmission brake shoes
Rear output seal replaced
Rear hub seals
New axle breathers
New heater/radiator hoses and overflow bottle
New horn
New multi-function indicator stalk (Lucas)
New rear view mirror
New washer motor, lines and washer jets
New wiring harness in engine compartment including fitting battery top fuse and fusible link wiring to permanent live circuits. Updated wiring locally, replaced bulbs and hazard flasher relay.

Other maintenance includes oil and filter changes, replacing differential, gearbox and transfer case fluids and tops ups to other areas, new coolant and brake fluid.

The previous owner fitted Discovery alloy wheels to the Land Rover and LT235/85 R16 tyres. I can include those with the sale or the original 15 steel wheels and tyres if a classic look is preferred.

Contact me by email coulsonster@gmail.com
with any questions. Truck is located in Regina, SK.

Hi Thanks very much for your prompt reply. I dont know Bill but he is certainly welcome to come and see it. Will pm you my cell number. I priced the vehicle as 8000 cdn, obviously a lot less for someone in the states with the strong USD.

Curious, how did the previous owner fit alloys? Does it have spacers, or were the wheels ground down to accommodate the larger Series hub?

Hi, yes the p.o. bought some spacers from the UK that fit the existing S3 hubs (and probably other series vehicles) with no modification. Here's photos of the set up with spacers fitted to the hubs. I saw a recent ad with roversnorth for the same kind of spacers (pricey at 499 for a set of 4 ..ouch, not including your wheels, fancy lug nuts or tyres!). It is not a cheap conversion, though saying that duscovery alloys are much less expensive than a set of 16" steel wheels.
