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!

- 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.

Scottg August 16th, 2011 09:41 PM

Pics loaded for me!

Dang I want this bad but all the available play money is tied up between my 3 rovers and a dirt bike :(

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.

kmcrofton September 6th, 2011 05:03 PM

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.

My girlfriend is from Fayetteville, we are usually around once a month...

kmcrofton September 7th, 2011 10:41 PM

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....

discotdi September 8th, 2011 12:47 PM

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.

Torancis_LR October 29th, 2011 07:29 PM

kmcrofton, is this Series III still available?

WildBoar February 19th, 2012 01:13 PM

nathanwind February 20th, 2012 06:30 PM

Sorry...couldn't resist :).
