'79 Series III 5-Door Diesel R-380

This is the Series truck to have!! We pulled the straight 6 as it had a rod knocking, and transplanted a 2.5 NAD (Military engine) with only 45k miles on it, AND the R-380 5 speed tranny And the LT230 T-Case,all with a new clutch. An original lump from our 110 Defender which is getting repowered now ( and converted to an auto box) and all from the same vehicle- factory correct from 1995. No more overdrive popping out, etc- a true 28 mpg, lots of torque, and decent cruising speed ( around 50-55 mph), which could be improved with a little larger diameter tire setup. This is a solid truck, not show quality, and not trash, but a good solid Series with new brakes and a great drivetrain. Body shows well with fresh paint from the previous owner, and a rock solid frame. A little rot under the rear doors, but not horrible. Inside is very nice as well, and even has steps all around!! Looks to have had a tropical roof, but the sunshield is missing- see headliner pics. It needs nothing but a new home. We are liquidating several of our Land Rovers to facilitate more travel time and expeditions with the family. Asking $17.5k, OBRO

Correct- also for sale, listed on ebay, and D-web. I didn't think the guys here would be interested.
